NIntendo Playing Cards 6000

Poker-sized playing cards.

Western Nintendo playing cards are playing cards that Nintendo produced. Nintendo released several thousand different designs and continues to do so with their Nintendo All-Plastic line. Western playing cards refer to the decks Nintendo released that feature numerical, face, joker and ace cards. Certain card designs were given numbers (such as No. 777) that helps signify just how many cards Nintendo produced. While the exact number of Nintendo Playing Card types are unknown, it's been confirmed that the number is above 6,000 (as is shown in the image to the right).

The number of the card deck design was sometimes placed on the bottom of the deck. If the number is of special importance, such as 1,000, then it is placed on the front of the deck (for example, deck number 303 is named "Nintendo No.303 Playing Cards", while number 87 is labeled "Oriental Napoleon Playing Cards 87").
