Nine gems of gaming merchandise

Activision sent us some Call of Duty: Finest Hour playing cards to celebrate the launch of their decent shooting game. We like them very much. Featuring 1940s-style glamour portraiture, the ever-so-slightly risqué illustrations make any game of Poker more exciting. Sadly, there isn't a different illustration on the back of every card - there are just four pictures, one for each suit. Makes playing snap a cinch, but means they're not quite as cool as the cards in Dead or Alive Xtreme 2's casino. But these are real, those aren't - so these win.

Average eBay price: $8

If you keep an eye on eBay, you might find similar items popping up now and again. There are some amazing game-related items around. But not all - remember, just because they're rare doesn't necessarily make them good.

    A pretty cool collection of game-ralated items. I always wondered why, in pictures of game magazine offices, there are lots of gaming merchandice, now I know.
