Whenever I am in a store or walking down the street, and I catch a glimpse of a deck of cards, I stop and look, usually for just a second. When I first saw the Vintage 1800 Series, I was transfixed. These cards, manufactured by the United States Playing Card Company, and sold by, are printed on standard Bicycle back stock with the design from today’s pips, numbers, and face cards except that they look really old. The white borders on the backs, and the faces are faded in a sepia-tone with faux water marks and cracks. I have inspected the cards and the vintage markings seem to be different on each card.

The cards handle the same as your regular box of 808’s. The deck comes with 52 playing cards, 2 black jokers and an extra card with a different colored back for various tricks. The Vintage Series 1800 Playing cards come in both Red and Blue backs.

The price is very fair and I would have paid more for them if they were listed at a higher price point.

There is something captivating about these cards and when you pick up a deck, you will understand what I mean. The well-produced promotional video asks you to imagine what a deck of cards would look like if it was left to the elements for over a century. And, that is what they created. I buy it. Even if you are not a cardophile, you should buy it too.

Manufacturer's Description:

Available in red or blue backs, you'll quickly understand why these cards are so popular when you start using them yourself. The cards look older than your aunt, but handle better than anything out there.

Pick up a deck, or 12, today.

It's like holding a work of art in your hands.

No detail was left untouched-- artwork on each card was delicately hand-crafted by Ellusionist's top graphic team. Even the seal on the deck looks like it was left in a gritty New York alley "for a spell".

The cards are an illusion in themselves, because they may look very old, but they handle superbly. You have to keep telling yourself, this is a new deck of cards.
