#ZZA135 - Complete Card Set of 12 Different Exhibit Supply Palmistry for Men Cards
You get the complete set of 12 for for $4 (that's only 33¢ each). These are cards that were dispensed at arcades and amusement parks in the Exhibit Supply Palmistry machines. They are marked Exhibit Supply and picture a palmistry hand. They are about 3 1/2" wide and in unused condition. Complete sets in this condition are very hard to find. There was a set for men and one for women. They tell your fortune. I am looking at one that says "Your hand says that you have a manly and courageous nature, and active mind and much tact...... You will probably marry early and enjoy a happily wedded life. These were found in original bundles with exhibit supply packaging in storage at an old amusement park up in the northeast. Based on the packaging, I would say these are from around the 1950s.

It was initially intended to be a "useful, instructive, and factual weekly newspaper of Opera in New York". Its first issue was published on 7 December 1936 and consisted of only one folded broadsheet.

#ZZA134 - Groups of 20 Napkin Dispenser Fortune/Drink Cards with Fortune or Drinks
You get 20 for $1.00 (that's only 5¢ each). Vintage 2 1/4" wide cards with pull strips. The front either tells you your fortune or a tidbit of wisdom about you or a drink recipe. You pulled back the tab and depending on how many stars were under there you won something. These are unused stock that were made for napkin machines that sat on a table usually in a bar. You put a penny or nickel in and got your fortune or a drink recipe and a chance to win a discount or a drink depending on what the house paid. These are from around the 1950s and are in excellent unused condition. The idea for the bar was that if someone got a card with a drink recipe on it, they might order the drink and the bar would make more money. If they got three stars, maybe they won a 5¢ discount on a drink, so they might order and the bar would again make more money. Plus the bar got a penny or nickel when someone put their money in the machine. Pretty clever marketing devices. You will get bunch of different ones in the lot of 20.
