Vintage 1952 Texaco 50th Anniversary Playing Cards
Texaco was founded in 1901 after a major oil strike at Spindletop near Beaumont, Texas. The company was officially incorporated as The Texas Company in 1902 and the word Texaco was first used as a brand (for asphalt, not gasoline) in 1903. The Texaco logo, a red star with a green capital “T” inside it, first appeared in 1909.
These playing cards commemorated the 50th anniversary of Texaco in 1952.
