Included with one of the Mah Jongg sets I recently purchased was a National Mah Jongg League (NMJL) card from 1957. I thought it might be fun to compare that card with the most recent one (2013).
The card is tiny and the price was too – 25 cents! However, there is an additional charge for membership in the NMJL – 50 cents! Today, as you know, the card is $7 (or $8 for the larger size) and that includes your membership in the League.
Flowers are classified as “bouquet” and “non-bouquet.” The values of the hands are based on 22 Flowers! Enjoy a little trip back in time…
I am going to play this morning and the subject was brought up last week about how much cards change from year to year. This will be fun to share.
Sharon – wishing you lots of Jokers today!
