1906 Theodore Roosevelt Elaborate Boxed Card Game "teddy's Multiplication Game" For Sale

1906 Theodore Roosevelt Elaborate Boxed Card Game

Very rare and wonderful, 1906 President Theodore Roosevelt Boxed Card Game featuring 156 Game Cards each with backs featuring images of Teddy Roosevelt on horseback wearing his Spanish American War, Rough Riders uniform!! This very rare and original Political Americana Card Game is titled "Teddy's Multiplication Game" and was patented in 1906 by Teddy Multiplication Game Company of Cleveland, Ohio.


The Card Game offered here is in its original, Illustrated Box. Included are three decks containing 52 Game Cards in each deck along with the original instruction booklet titled "Rules Governing Teddy's Multiplication Game".


This fascinating early 20th century Theodore Roosevelt subject Card Game comes in its original, slip case type box which measures approx. 4 1/8” tall and 2 3/4" by 2 1/2" at the base. The Box is illustrated with two images that are identical to the images found on the back of each playing card as well as an image of the front of one of the 12 "Joker" cards included in the Game and another image of the front of one of the other playing cards. Text on the top panel of the Box reads "Play Teddy's Multiplication Game / The Teddy Multiplication Game Co. / 463 The Arcade / Cleveland, Ohio. / It Multiplies Your Abilities".


This is a very rare, educational Card Game which features sets of cards that illustrate the Multiplication Tables from 1 to 12. Each of the three decks that make up the Game include 4 multiplications (the first deck includes the tables from 1 to 4, the second deck includes the tables from 5 to 8 and the third deck includes the tables from 9 to 12). The Game basically used the popularity of President Roosevelt to promote a rather simple, educational game focused on teaching both children and adults their Multiplication tables.


While the Game carries a patent date of 1906, there is also a hand stamped, copyright notice dated 1921 on the outer surface of the box.


This fascinating and exceptionally rare, 1906 Theodore Roosevelt Boxed Card Game is in very good condition overall - complete with all cards present and including the original instruction booklet. The original Box is in very good condition - sound and intact with all side panels present and all corner junctions intact but with some light edge wear and light soiling as can be seen in the scans below. All three deck of playing cards are contained in their individual boxes with 2 of the three internal boxed complete and intact and one box lacking its original flap closure. All 156 of the Playing Cards are present and generally in excellent condition - clean and crisp and with minimal wear except for a single card that has age toning to the back side. The Directions for Playing the Game are generally clean and crisp with uniform age toning and some light edge wear as can be seen in the scans below.


A very rare and wonderful, 1906 Political Americana / President Theodore Roosevelt Boxed Card Game and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!
