MAX PLAYING CARDS AND COLLECTABLE PLAYING CARDS ARE PROUD TO OFFER YOU THE NEW BICYCLE WOOD RIDER BACK DECK

In 2015, the TEXTURE SERIES arrived to give the BICYCLE RIDER BACK a new twist. After many color combinations, the Texture series offered a new style for poker nights, magic tricks, cardistry and collection.

As a serious collector and a playing card fan, Max (Max Playing Cards) wanted to show his devotion designing something he was waiting for a lot of time: a new concept for combining with the most popular and used playing cards in the world: the standard Bicycle rider back decks.

The first deck, the Metal deck, was a true success. More than 1000 wonderful backers believed in the project and the more than 5000 decks printed are COMPLETELY SOLD OUT.

Two years after the Metal deck release, the second deck in the series is almost ready to be in your hands… Are you going to miss it?

 

IT IS NOT WOOD BUT… WHO CARES?

Hundreds of hours have been invested in this design to offer you one of the most amazing Rider Backs in the world.

Every detail has been taken care of to make this deck a realistic wood deck made of the best Bicycle paper stock printed by the United States Playing Card Company.

 

 

 

Main features:

  • Printed by the United States Playing Card Company
  • Bicycle branded
  • Bicycle stock and Magic (air-cushion) finish
  • Customized faces with wood theme
  • Customized classic rider back in burned wood
  • Custom and numbered deck seal for this 1st print run (future print runs won't be numbered)
  • Subtle one way cards with a two ways aspect
  • Joker reveal
  • Card reveal on tuck box
  • Double back gaff card
  • Motion feature on corner screws
  • Embossed and inner printed tuck box
  • many features for magic routines

Pledge here on Kickstarter and receive low introductory pricing and FREE domestic shipping. This Bicycle exclusive and limited rider back deck will retail for $14.95 once released to retail outlets.

INTERNATIONAL BACKERS WELCOMED: we know the shipping has become insane for all backers outside the USA. Even trying to keep the costs at minimum regarding the fulfilment, sending decks abroad is really expensive. As an international backer himself, Max wanted to, at least, offer a few Early Birds decks with discounted price only for International backers.

The WOOD DECK is a reinterpretation of the classic Bicycle RIDER BACK deck using a set of textures to give the cards a realistic wooden aspect.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although it is a highly collectible deck, the WOOD DECK has been designed thinking of magicians and card routines. For that reason, it has many features that allow magic tricks using only the deck or combining it with other rider back decks.

  • Subtle one way cards with a two ways aspect
  • Joker reveal
  • Card reveal on tuck box
  • Double back gaff card
  • Motion feature on corner screws

 

 

 

 

This project is simple. Just a fantastic deck to add to you pledge. If you want an uncut, you must select one of the limited tiers with it and add as much extra decks as you want.

 

We have also created a Wood Card available as add-on. Please, read below for details.

As a special complement for the Wood Deck, Max has created a LIMITED WOOD CARD design. Both sides of the card will be etched on real natural cherry wood and will be a fantastic complement for the Wood deck.

Since 2012, Max Playing Cards have been joined to playing cards artists, creators and companies. Looking for the inspiration behind the playing cards, more than 1200 articles have shown all types of styles and designs trying to go beyond the features of the cards showing also part of their soul. The Texture Series is just another way to show the gratitude to all those members of this fantastic playing cards community and also another way to go on working for them all.

Please, visit Max Playing Cards and join the newsletter to be in touch with the Playing Cards news.

Collectable Playing Cards is the main Bicycle Playing Cards producer in Kickstarter. With around 40 decks successfully funded (and some more produced without crowdfunding) they have demonstrated a deep and solid experience to produce and also fulfill these campaigns. They also have a wide variety of playing cards available in their website so perghaps you want to visit their website and have a look while you enjoy this wonderful campaign.

This is a playing cards deck made by USPCC, the biggest playing cards company in the world. It is, obviously, a deck of cards made with paper so don’t expect to receive a deck made of real wood. We honestly wouldn’t have thought this remark would be necessary but don’t want to disappoint anyone with the final product. ALL the TEXTURE series decks have been created to pretend to be something different from paper, which is the real material the cards are made of.

All images are conceptual renderings of the final product exactly the same we have provided USPCC with. The final product may vary from the images supplied during the Kickstarter project due to the printing process. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Risks and challenges

The Bicycle Wood Deck has already been approved by USPCC for printing. We expect to receive the the decks by January 2017 and immediately begin shipping to all our backers. We do not anticipate and challenges with this project.

How do we print and ship out rewards so quickly? We have a close relationship with USPCC. They are able to print our designs quickly and we have a state art fulfillment center to quickly ship out our backer rewards. With out you, our backers, we could not make this happen. A BIG thank you to Kickstarter and most importantly all of you!
