Product Description

Trade cards were one of the most popular forms of advertising during the 1800's and were used to promote anything from dry goods to clothing stores. Sam Loyd was approached by a number of organizations who wanted to use his puzzles to promote their goods and since he owned his own printing press he would design and print these cards.

Since they were giveaways many have not lasted the hundred plus years since they were created and so The Sam Loyd Company has opened its archives to make these cards once again available in their original form just the way Sam Loyd made them way back.

Cut the card on the lines into three pieces and lay them so that each mule has a correct rider.

The cardboard that Sam Loyd used for his puzzle cards was specially selected by him. He wanted to ensure that it had the right balance of texture and thickness, to not only enhance his graphics, but to also give you the best in-hand embellishment when holding the card to solve it.

The Sam Loyd Company has been able to recreate that same cardboard, as first used by Sam Loyd, using original sources. The cardboard is exclusively manufactured for our use and goes by the product code No.1868, in tribute to the release of the very first puzzle card.

To ensure that you experience the puzzle cards just the way Sam Loyd intended you to, be sure to buy only cards created by The Sam Loyd Company. Each carry the Sam Loyd logo, which is a registered trademark and your guarantee of the highest quality.
