    1890 N457 Type 3 Moore & Calvi "Playing Cards" Complete Set (53) - #1 on the SGC Set Registry! This is the #1 set on the SGC Set Registry with a GPA of 73.0. "Trumps Long Cut" was the brand of choice for the very colorful and well-made complete set or should we say complete deck of Playing Cards circulated at some point during the early 1890's. This is the "Type 3" variety identified by the distinctive blue ink reverses. The multiple types suggest they must have sold well and by all accounts this style offers the most colorful and elaborate illustrations.
