Chris Ramsay’s Memento Mori Playing Cards

Chris Ramsay’s Memento Mori Playing Cards are some of the most popular playing cards ever made. These gorgeous custom playing cards were designed around the ancient Latin practice of reflecting on one’s own mortality.

Like many historians, Chris believes there is an esoteric meaning hidden below the surface of playing cards. Just like there are four seasons, there are four suits in a deck of cards. Each suit has 13 playing cards representing the thirteen phases of the moon and adding up to 52 total playing cards, just like there are 52 weeks in a year. In essence, it’s like a deck of cards represents a year of your life. Featuring an eye-popping, low-poly skull design, Chris Ramsay’s Memento Mori Playing Cards are a constant reminder to take advantage of the fleeting time we have on earth.

Each stunning deck of Memento Mori Playing Cards features custom Aces, Court Cards and Jokers designed in the same signature low-poly theme. This breathtaking design combined with vibrant colors enables you to create truly spectacular visuals with every flourish, spread, cascade or fan. Printed by the United States Playing Card Company on premium crushed stock, these are the perfect playing cards for any magician, cardist or playing card collector.
