1720 Dutch Playing Cards

Item #: S-11108
A Museum of American Finance exclusive, this deck is a reproduction of a set of cards that appeared in the Netherlands following the implosion of a speculative bubble in stock markets across Western Europe in 1720. The cards feature a colorful cast of characters from hapless stock traders to rogue directors, from allegorical figures from classic mythology to animals, and show that although times have changed, the psychology that led to the bubble is still very much alive today -- and evokes much of the same criticism when things go wrong!
