Description Four advertising score or tally cards for bridge from Jagel's Fuel Corporation, 77 River Street, Hoboken, circa 1925-1935. Printed die-cut cardstock, hand fan style, with varying shapes, 7" high x circa 4" wide. All imprinted on reverse with scoring chart, Jagel's name and location. Manufacturer's stock number on them, but no other maker's markings.

Each card has a different subject and shape with the theme carried over to the typefaces used on the back along with artistic decoration. Note: cleverly detailed; although they are one-piece cardboard, the front has a printed "string" attaching the "wood" handle to the fan.
