This is my 5th restoration. The T5, Murphy Varnish Transformation Playing Cards were originally printed in 1883 by Andrew Dougherty in 2 colors; Green and Red. They were printed as an advertising deck for the Murphy Varnish company from Newark New Jersey.
In a transformation deck there are unique pictures on each card intertwined with the pips, Clubs, Diamonds, Spades, & Hearts. As an advertising deck it depicts comical pictures of varnish salesmen, people worshiping cans of varnish and all of the good uses for the Murphy Varnish.
The decks will be printed by the United Stated Playing Card Company.
Comments from 1st Restoration the Green Deck:
"Excellent decks, you do a great job on them."
"As always, your beautifully restored decks make me long to open them right away, while also making me feel terrible about doing so; because I hate destroying the packages and seals! So Thank You for making me feel like a kid at Christmas time!"
"As a collector with literally thousands of decks, and with the great proliferation of decks available out there, so many leave me unmoved.
Your restoration decks, however, are completely the opposite. I absolutely love the concept and the execution.
I hope you do many more; I'll certainly be more than happy to back them."
