I’m posting today about a girl’s game played in the 1950’s in northern Ohio. (Although this is about 100 years later than the time period in which I love to write, all history is fascinating to me no matter what the age.)
This particular “game” was for girls and was Trading Cards. You could buy a pack of cards, similar to a Bicycle playing deck (for adults) or baseball cards (for boys). Each card had a different picture on it and was blank on the back. You could get a deck of birds or of European buildings or of landscapes, etc. Often there were two or three images which were doubled or ones you didn’t like as much, and then you would trade these with other girls for cards you didn’t have. It was like carrying around your own little art museum or outdoor park.
Has anyone reading this heard of trading cards?
