GROLIER STORY OF AMERICA CARDS 1994-2001
Story of America Cards by Grolier (Also known sometimes as Life in America cards) were
released by subsciption only from 1994 to 2001. The cards were delivered to buyers in
"decks" sent monthly through the mail. The buyer could then remit payment which would
continue the subscription. These cards were never sold as a complete set and only by
subscribing sometime between 1994 and 2001 could you accumulate some or all of these
cards. The cards measure 4.25 x 6 inches (10 x 15 cm) and they are printed on glossy card
stock in full color (some pictures are naturally in black and white since many cards show
older events and people). The cards are printed in the USA and were released by Grolier,
Inc and they are in English.
There are 130 "decks" or "packets" of cards in the Grolier Story of America card set, with
20 cards per deck for a total of 2,600 cards. The cards cover all aspects of US history
including War, Politics, Sports and Entertainment, Events, famous places and much, much
more. The cards are all numbered on the back by Deck number and Card number ddd-cc
(ddd= Deck number 1 to 139 and cc = Card number 1 to 20), so cards go from 1-1 to 139-20.
Each box holds about 500 cards to a complete set usually takes 5 to 6 boxes.
Deck numbers run from 1-102, then were lettered A-F for 6 decks, and
resumed at 119 and ran to 139 (there are no decks numbers 103 to 118).
