PLAYING CARD Filed July 22, 1950 gm, l9

PLAYING CARD Application filed July 22, 1930. Serial No. 469,857.
My invention relates to new and useful improvements in cards and more particularly to playing cards or cards of the playing-card type, the primary object of the invention being to provide a card made of paper, fabric and/or combinations thereof, which 1s flexible and yet made sufficiently weighty to enable the same to be readily used and played with in the path of a breeze,wind or currents.
of air created by fans.
Still another'object of the invention resides in the production of a card which is weighted either by impregnating the material of which the card is made with a 5 weighty substance, by coating a lamination or lamlnations with a weighty substance, or.
by the introduction of a weighty lamination or by any other means of weighting the material of which the card may be made and at the same time retain the flexlbility.
A. still further object resides in weighting a card in the manner hereabove set forth which will not materially increase the thickness of said card and which will notaffect the ready shufiling thereof.
With these and numerousother objects in view, my invention consists in the novel featuresof construction, combination and arrangement of parts that will be hereinafter o referred to and more particularly pointed out in the specification and claims.
In the accompanying drawing forming a part of this specification;
Figure 1 is a perspective view, with parts broken away and parts in section illustrating the preferred embodiment of my invention;
Figure 2 is a slightly modified form of the invention wherein a single lamination is coated with a weighty substance;
Figure 3 is a further modification of the invention wherein two laminations are used in the construction of a card between which is ilnterposed a coating of weighty material; an
Figure 4 is a further modification of the invention wherein a card is constructed of a pair of laminations, which laminations are impregnated with a weighty substance.-
It is a well known fact that difficulty is being encountered by card players and players of games using cards where the play is deslred on porches of homes, on the lawns and on the decks of ships and vessels, due to the breeze which is so frequently encountered. In the warmer periods of the year, at home and on vacation, card players prefer to ,play their games in the open, for obvious reasons, but due to the fact that the breeze prevents the cards from being dealt across a table readily, this outdoor'play is almost precluded.
I have found a means, however, of overcoming these difficulties by providing a card which is slightly weighted and at the same time is not increased materially in thickness,
nor is the flexibility nor playing proclivities thereof affected. My improved invention is capable of application to cards which may be made of one or more laminations and in this connection, I do not wish to be limited to the particular illustrations made in the drawing attached hereto, since these are merely illustrations of the application of my invention for; use, other applications being quite possi- In describing the invention, I shall refer to the drawing which, as stated, illustrates certain methods of applying my invention to use, in which similar reference characters designate corresponding parts throughout the several views and in which 1 designates a playing card formed of two laminations 2 and 3, which laminations may be formed of paper, fabric and/or any combination thereof. Interposed between the laminations 2 and 3 is a lamination 4 of some weighted material, such for instance as tin, lead or silver foil, or any other metallic substance, as I do not wish to be limited to any particular material, which lamination 4 may be solid, or erforated as desired. This lamination may e secured between the laminations 2 and 3 in any preferred mailer. The lamination 4 is, of course, of flexible material applied lightly to the laminations 2 and 3 and of such thin material as not to increase materially the thickness of the ordinary card. Being flexible, light in weight, and very thin,
-this lamination will, as stated, not materially increase the thickness of the ordinary card and While weightlng the laminations to the degree of permitting the cards to be played with in a breeze, it will enable the cards to be readily shufiled and played with.
In Fi re 2, I have shown a slight modification this invention. In this form, I have illustrated a card constructed of a single lamination5, the one face of which is coated with a metallic substance 6. This metallic substance "may be any desired and preferred material which is white or red lead, sulphate barium, pigment or other material, as I do not wish to be limited to any particular material for use in this connection. The coating is applied thinly and evenly to form substantially a layer but is of not such thickness as would affect the playing of the game since the coating will enable flexibility and ready shufiling of the cards.
This coating may be inherently adhesive or other adhesive material may be added for securing. of the metallic coating in place. This is immaterial.
In Figure 3, I have shown a slightly modified formof 'the invention which probably will be the preferred form, although I am not limiting myself to any particular form illustrated in this drawing. In this form of the invention, two laminations 7 and 8 are provided, the laminations being formed of any preferred material such as paper, fabric or combinations thereof, the inner opposed faces of which are coated with a metallic substance designated by the numeral 9 which substance is similar to that substance designated by the numeral 6 in the form shown in Figure 2. The coating of the inner opposed faces of the laminations 7 and 8 with this metallic substance which may be red or white lead, sulphate barium, pigment or any other material, provides. substantially a layer between the laminations 7 and 8, but being very lightly applied, this coating does not greatly increase the thickness of the card beyond the thickness of the usual playing card. At the same time, it permits flexibility of the card and rovides suflicient weightto enable playing t erewith in a breeze without the card being blown away.
In Figure 4 of the drawing, I have shown a still further modification of the invention.
"secured together in the usual or any preferred manner and a card is thus provided which has flexibility and weight and which is not greatly increased in thickness over the thickness of the usual playing card.
The essential feature of the invention is to provide a card which is sufficiently weighty From the foregoing description of the construction of my improved invention, the method of applying the same to use will be readily understood and it will be seen that I have provided a simple, inexpensive and efficient means for carrying out the objects of the invention.
While I have particularly described the elements best adapted to perform the functions set forth, it is obvious that various changes in form, proportion and in the minor details-of construction may be resorted to, without departing from the spirit or sacrificinglany of the principles of the invention.
aving thus described my invention, what I claim is:
1. A playing card or the like comprising a body of non-metallic substance having a metallic weighted substance applied thereto as and for the purpose described.
2. A playing card or the like comprising a non-metallic body, and a metallic substance applied throughout the area of said body, as and for the purposes described.
3. Aplaying card or the like comprising a lamination and a weighted metallic layer applied thereto.
4. A playing card or the like comprising a lamination coated with a weighty metallic substance.
5. A playing card or the like comprising non-metallic laminations and a weighted metallic substance inter osed therebetween.
6. A playing car or the like comprising laminations and a metallic substance interposed therebetween.
7. A playing card or the like comprising laminations anda metallic substance interposed therebetween and covering the area thereof to form a weighted layer therein.
8. A playing card or the like comprising non-metallic laminations, metallic means interposed between said laminations and covered and secured to the entire area thereof forming a weighted layer therebetween.
9. A playing card or the like com rising laminations and a metallic layer tlierebetween covering the entire area thereof, as and for the purposes described.
In testimony whereof I affix my signature.
