June 20, 2022

A box of playing cards.Does anyone know the value of an unwrapped box of playing cards from ARROWSMITH tool and manufacturing company. I assume it is from the 1970s. ARROWSMITH was in Los Angeles, CA. Also, where is the best place or website to sell them? Thank you! I have 4 total. 2 red and 2 blue.

You have an Arrowsmith Tool & MFG Corp Advertisement deck, most likely from the 50s.
I found Deck of Playing Cards Arrowsmith Tool & Manufacturing Corp. $6.98

This company also produced matches. I found the Advertisement Match Book of the same Arrowsmith Tool & MFG Corp from the 50's where you can read information about this company

There are decks like yours listed for sale online for a high of $15 down to $5.
You can try listing them on any online site that you're familiar with; Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, eBay etc.


I did not actually find a deck that had sold so most likely these will be very slow sellers.
You may want to list them in pairs.
Be sure to add shipping charges to your price.
