I love these cards as they harken back to a time when I was young and the Soviets were our reviled enemy. The quality is excellent and well packaged.
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.
