Abstract
Let G and H be graphs of order n. The number of common cards of G and H is the maximum number of disjoint pairs (v, w), where v and w are vertices of G and H, respectively, such that G  v = H  w. We prove that if the number of common cards of G and H is at least n  2 then G and H must have the same number of edges, when n ≥ 29. This is the first improvement on the longstanding result of Myrvold that if G and H have at least n  1 common cards then they have the same number of edges. It also improves on the result of Woodall that the numbers of edges of G and H differ by at most one when they have n  2 common cards.
