Set Summary
  • Produced by Rittenhouse Candy Company of Philadelphia
  • Originally designed as a deck of 52 playing cards
  • Card fronts in one of three colors:  red, green, and blue
  • Player full name printed on front of card
  • Unnumbered cards; Backs have three primary variations
  • "Letter" backs used as basis for Old Cardboard logo
  • OK! Now, more than 80 years later, we decided to play the Rittenhouse game--and we could use a little help from our friends. As you can see, we still have a ways to go. Any assistance that you can provide in completing the puzzle is most welcome. Just attach a scan with a missing letter from the back of your original E285 card and send to editor@oldcardboard.com. We will be happy to credit you as the supplier of any missing letters that you provide!
