The Cuban Missile Crisis theme is embedded within the back-card design. Notably, the U-2, soviet missiles and the Russians working in Cuba with Castro’s regime.
Lessons were learned from this confrontation included the sobering realization about how close the world had come to catastrophe and that efforts should be made to avoid it happening again.
This crisis also led to the establishment of the Moscow-Washington hotline in an effort to avoid some of the misunderstanding and miscommunication that characterized the US-Soviet exchanges over the course of the confrontation. The hotline is commemorated in the tuck box seal.
