What is this and is it worth anything?

My grandmother gave me this Century Of Progress collectible about 20 years ago. As far as I can tell it is for the card game "Bridge". I have been searching for information on it since it came into my possession and have come up empty handed. Even Google came up empty.. a first for me! Anyone have any idea if this is worth anything or if it is really a bridge game?

Almost all World's Fairs included decks of cards among their souvenir offerings. Some decks were special Bridge sets. Not too uncommon, but since yours is from 1933-34, condition is what's going to matter with paper items like playing cards. If they are in mint condition, you could command a premium price.

Or, judging by your label it doesn't include the playing cards at all, just the scoring sheets. Still an interesting item.

Thank you for the response. Got me thinking about the contents description on the box and I did some more digging.
