Computer House of Cards by Charles Eames 

Computer House of Cards for IBM by Charles Eames

A souvenir of the IBM Pavilion at the 1970 World's Fair in Osaka, Japan. The Computer House of Cards is a fascinating project and important on a number of levels. The cards were originally printed only once for the Osaka Worlds Fair. This has made them very desirable to collectors. But from an historic standpoint, these cards also represent the look and feel of computers before the microchip. The cards have slits so as to be stackable. Very rare collector's item never available for general sale except from the designers.

Several Sets of these cards appeared in Jan 2006. One sold for ~$125 and the other for ~$160
