Greetings All

I've looked through the forum but since the keywords are quite generic I haven't so far found an answer --- though I do suspect this might have been asked before. (So apologies in advance!)

Can anyone point me towards a resource for 'vintage' cards in JPG, PNG, Vector for a full deck of vintage cards? I have found this already in 'new' cards (more or less matching the typical USPCC set) but I now need to find something with a vintage look for a matching prediction. (I tried taking the modern ones and 'aging' them with grime... it half worked, but I realise that they look like new-cards-dirtied rather than anything really old.

Of course I can try and find an old old deck in an antique shop and scan them as a sheet...

Any links or resources would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I have an antique deck somewhere buried in my closet. (Antique - very old, got it 10 years ago, it is probably ~20yo) It has the edges rounded from playing and is not the most clean deck, but I think as a style of the cards it should be what you are looking for. I think it was bridge size. If I make photos of all the cards or scan them in the scanner, would that be of any help?

Thanks very much Toni - but I'm probably looking for something that's 50 or 100 years old - or at least is 'old style', so probably 20 is a bit young for this project BUT THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR OFFERING! Best regards! Patrick

Well, I will still dig them out and make a photo of the deck. Who knows, my estimation might be wrong or the style might fit. Better to share. I'd be happy if I can help. If not, I wish you luck with your project Patrick!
Best regards!
