They were purchased during Vernon's lecture tour where Cossari went along with Vernon to demonstrate card fans and fanning. All 56 cards are included (52 regular cards, 2 jokers, one double blank card and one blank face card). The blank face card has very light pencil writing on it (see photos). These cards are in wonderful condition with very light pencil writing on the face of one card.
