This deck of playing cards was part of the Technical Order bag of Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missile crewmember, Capt. Robert Moore, U.S. Air Force. Each crewmember carried such a bag with weapons operations instructions and personal items to occupy the long hours spent inside a bunker.

Capt. Moore donated this deck of cards in 1987.
