This page contains a collection of crooked gambling gaffs and other gambling paraphernalia. Most of these gaffs were sold through various gambling supply houses, that flourished from the 1930s until 1961, such as the KC Card Co, Hunt & Co, Mason & Co... For completion, and historical purposes, we are including crooked gambling equipment beyond the interest of card cheating, as well as some ordinary gambling paraphernalia that we believe is of interest to collectors.
Furthermore, some of the gambling equipment listed in this collection also appears in some other chapters on this site, mainly in holdout devices, marked cards as well as in our online shop.
This virtual museum has a listing of crooked gambling gaffs card-cheating gaffs, dice-cheating equipment and other gambling paraphernalia. If you are interested in researching historic playing cards, please visit our online collection of playing cards from around the world, on our sister site.
