No One Plays With A Full Deck www.headsupkentucky.org Covered with playing cards, this head is missing a card. Which one? You will have to look to find out. A full deck of fifty-two cards contains four suits of cards and thirteen cards per suit. On this head, however, one of those cards is missing.

No One Plays With A Full Deck currently resides in the collection of the University of Kentucky Psychology Clinic in Lexington,...
