Author Legend: There is only one copy of the original 1934 Franklin Delano Roosevelt New Deal deck known to exist.  That unique deck is in my personal collection.  All others were destroyed by the US Secret Service in 1934 in Dallas Texas. 
However, I have had a small number of facsimiles printed that are being offered for sale in the gift shops of such institutions as the FDR Museum And Library, the Smithsonian, the Library of Congress, and the Vice President John Nance Garner Library. 
The very existence of the deck was unknown for 65 years, until it was discovered in a tax sale of an old fellow who had swiped a copy of the deck when he was charged with burning the entire press run under the supervision of the U.S. Secret Service in 1934.  He kept it in a shoebox in his attic until 1999, living in fear he would be arrested by the Feds if anyone found out about it.
FDR is shown on the Kings, Eleanor Roosevelt on the Queens, and VP John Nance (Cactus Jack) Garner.  Since opponents publicly accused Roosevelt of acting like he was a King instead of a President, he was furious when he found out that someone printed his picture on all the kings in a Poker deck.  He ordered the Secret Service to “suppress the deck.”
On the backs are 25 alphabet agencies created during the First New Deal.  In the center, are the initials of the NRA, which stands for the National Recovery Administration not the National Rifle Association. Each of the aces highlights one of the controversial agencies.
