Went to a few yard sales the other week and came across this table. It was being used to display items for sale when I spotted it.
Though this item is not very popular with collectors, I find it quite fascinating. Back then the game bridge and other card games were common among households. Coca-Cola saw this as a great opportunity to advertise. They produced various packs of cards, score cards, and even a card table that people could purchase at the bottling plant for $2.00. This table is made of cardboard w/ red wood legs. Its amazing that it lasted this long. It still has the original ads on the underside.
Well being so interested in this table I asked the owner if they would sell it. He gave me, in my eyes, a great price of $15.00. Today I am a very happy owner of a 1920 coke card table. Not easy to display but a great addition to any collection.
