Introduced in 1906 (Red, blue, green, and brown.) What is commonly referred to by magicians as "Racers" is actually the Racer No. 2 back. It was very similar to the Racer No. 1 except for the wing symbol in the center of the card. On the No. 1 it was a three-pronged symbol that made the deck an obvious one-way back. When the Racer No. 2 came out in 1906 it had the four-pronged symbol shown here. Both the No. 1 and No. 2 Racer backs were originally available in red, blue, green and brown. Produced through at least 1949.
The stamp is a A and is canceled in 1922
That makes these card at 91 years old and never used
