VAR cards come from Cold War era!

Though the cards are 30-year-old artifacts, all are in excellent condition. 2½"x 3½".

My kids thought they were cool.
These cards remind me of how much I loved aircraft as a kid. I recently took my 4 and 8 year old boys to the Hill Aerospace Museum here in Utah and we brought one of the decks to see how many of the aircraft we could find. The kids loved it and it was great seeing their fascination grow just as mine did when I was younger. We matched 16 cards.
Great conversation starters as coasters and nostalgic Cold War era. 10 packs arrived, more than expected.
