I wonder if that Ace is still in an evidence locker somewhere
This was actually a staged photograph. The photographer placed the card in his hand for effect.
Interesting that the title is “Mafia Boss Joe Masseria Lays…”
His nickname was “The Boss.”
Joe “The Boss” Masseria.

If you you are fascinated by mob stuff, I highly recommend the HBO series Boardwalk Empire. Joe Masseria is a significant character.
This is staged, unlike the one of Carmine Galante with the cigar in his mouth: https://www.google.com/search?q=carmine+galante+death+photo&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjviePZw73dAhUB64MKHaz3Cy0Q_AUIDigB&biw=1605&bih=953#imgrc=hx5KfBzMGL3IEM:
This is cheating to stop someone from playing their hand by killing them
No wonder madball made this photo the cover for their album demonstrating my style. Such a sick picture.
Can still buy TALLY-HO cards online. Good decks.
The story behind this always reminds me of Road to Perdition, which is just a great film.
“Was this your card?”
