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".

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.

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
