looky-looky at what i just won on ebay!!! i am so excited about these. here's the item description that was on ebay:

Old letterpress blocks recovered from a vintage printing room in a funeral home on the south side of Chicago. These unusual pieces are the 4 threes(spade,heart,diamond,club) used on playing cards. They are metal on wood, could use a cleaning, and measure 3/8" x 3/4" each.

oh how i can't wait to get these in my hot lil hands.

hmm...what are the odds that i could get the whole set??????
