There are a few quartetts with the name "Easy Rider" by different manufacturers, and this one is among the rarest ones. I have found just one reference of "Star", the card manufacturer, but this reference does not include any relevant information about the origin of this brand.
It seems to be a rare deck, and Star a very small manufacturer, or maybe a "white brand" for another larger Company. I think it is actually the second: this deck was probably made by Piatnik from Vienna, because it is almost identical to the homonimous Piatnik deck, reference 4222 from 1977. Only 8 cards are different. Earlier versions of this Piatnik deck have more differences, so my guess is that the Star quartett must be slightly newer than the Piatnik 4222.
Sorry that I cannot say anything else about this deck, if you know something about it, please don´t hesitate to leave a comment to this entry. Thanks.
