I bought these for a friend of my mother's who has Macular Degeneration. She loves them! These cards have enabled a group of 80+ bridge ladies to remain connected. I have been asked to buy these several times for others in their group.

These are very pretty. While the cards are a little slippery and stiff at first, I think they will break in nicely and stay good for a long time. I got them to replace a similar set I have been using for about 40 years. I think the large index is good for older players.

These cards feel great and look very nice. They are slightly smaller in width than some other jumbo index cards, which makes them easier to hold in your hand. Very smooth and easy to shuffle. Highly recommended.

Congress playing cards have always been attractive, long-lasting, good quality bridge/playing cards.
My Mom has a bunch of them in boxes, and only changes them out so her bridge groups get a change of scenery--they last well under normal bridge group conditions.

This series also comes in "Jumbo index," which is great for older eyes. My Mom's bridge groups have been going strong for 40+ years, and they now appreciate the larger index version, so we are adding to her collection.

The illustrated backs are the same, but the jumbo index cards shrink the face images to emphasize the suit and card number--so the players can pick out the card values more easily. These seem to be large enough because Ifound another company that makes a really out sized index, and my Mom said they all still had their eyesight, just older eyes. I take that to mean that barring any substantial vision loss, some of the players in her set do have macular degeneration that's not too advanced, these should be legible enough for "older" eyes at any age.

I can recommend these cards, even though I don't play, because the local bridge bunch loves them and I have been buying these fun cards for my Mom since I was a kid!

I get a pack or so for my Mom and her friends every chance I see them, but I think the manufacturer has gone out of business, so if you want some, you better act fast, as there are even less of the "jumbo" index still floating around.

hope this was helpful

These cards are wonderful if you are playing with individuals with less than perfect eyesight. As we age, unfortunately, our close vision fades - and these cards make it easy to play bridge. ALso occasionally our son, who lives in the basement where the lighting is not too bright, likes to play solitare and these large print cards work well for him as well. Price is much better than at the Hallmark store - get yours here!!

My mother is an avid bridge player but also has macular degeneration causing low vision issues.
She is able to continue playing cards due to items such as these. Thank you Congress. The Larger the better!

These cards are perfect! We used 3 decks for our game and there are 5 of us. The cards are small enough to hold and strong enough to last. The jumbo letters are a big plus. Definitely 5 star!!!!!
