Vintage Marked Playing Cards
Don’t you hate it how everything looks so clean these days? People are over-obsessed with cleanliness and hygiene; gone are the days where layers of grease and grime were allowed to build up lovingly over the years, and cherished as the natural result of years of loving use. Now, everything is polished, dusted, and cleansed of all the lovely muck that would otherwise beautify those things we love best. But now you no longer have to put up with new, shiny things! Many items are now available pre-aged, and we’d like to present to you this spectacular set of gloriously aged vintage playing cards.
However, that’s not the only feature these old-looking cards have. Each and every single card in the deck is subtly and cleverly marked on the back, meaning if, and only if you know what you are looking for, you can tell which card is which, without seeing the front side. This means these cards are perfect for magic tricks, especially those involving an unsuspecting audience member.
Modeled after traditional card sets by the United States Playing Card Company for Ellusionist, this set of Vintage Marked 1800Series Bicycle Cards is carefully coloured to a grubby, aged appearance. Each individual card has received this aging attention, so the whole deck looks as though it has been handed down from father to son for at least 6 generations.
However, these cards are missing the stickiness that would accompany genuine old cards, so you may have to add a sticky layer yourself after purchase. However this is easily done, and a small price to pay for such a beautifully ancient and dirty set of cards.
