A retro classic vintage inspired design for the modern player, collector, cardist or magician. Choose the Oak or Slate edition or stock up on both. 1 deck will only be available during the campaign.

Each deck has matching face designs but with contrasting backs for easy 2 deck game play such as rummy, canasta and bridge. Also great for those card tricks that require 2 different complimentary decks.

Features:

  • Made in USA by USPCC
  • Classic Stock
  • Embossed Finish
  • Poker Size
  • 52 Cards + 2 Jokers
  • 2 Gaff Cards
  • Tuck Case Reveal
  • 100% Custom Original Art
  • Limited Edition of 1,000

Surprise KickStarter Exclusive!

1 of these decks will only be available during the campaign. I will not be selling the exclusive deck once the campaign is complete, any remaining copies of the exclusive deck will only be used for promotional use. To prevent hoarding of the exclusive deck it will be announced which deck it is after the rewards have shipped. Preventing re-sellers from obtaining copies during the campaign is unavoidable and those may be the only ones you see on the aftermarket, but they will be in very limited availability.

A note about rewards:  

If you choose more than one deck you may split the decks how ever you like between the editions. Your decks will automatically be evenly split but you will have the option to change that when the reward surveys are sent. If there is a reward or add-on you would like to see please let me know.

Risks and challenges

The art work has been preapproved by USPCC and is in the process of final approval for printing. We should proceed to contract and schedule the printing before the campaign even ends, so there is little risk of not completing this deck.

Besides being a super backer I have successfully completed a couple of my own campaigns as well as helping other creators.

I really enjoy the process of creating decks with the artists and working with backers to bring the decks to life.

If there are delays or issues they will be communicated and dealt with in an open manner. As always, I appreciate your support and feedback.
