This deck is a regular Mandolin 809 Bicycle back deck. All the cards in this deck have been shortened a fraction of an inch, similar to a Svengali deck.

About the Mandolin 809 Bicycle Deck

Design: Paul Harris directed the development of the new 809 Bicycle back with USPCC. Paul worked with three world class artists (including Garrett Thomas) to create a soothing traditional looking back that's instantly trusted as part of the Bicycle family. And yes, this classic looking deck even features the trademarked Bicycle Ace of Spades, Joker and the traditional box.

Quality: Richard Turner worked directly with USPCC manufacturing to ensure the new Bicycle 809 Mandolin has a superior cut and quality. These are exquisitely crafted decks! Once you feel these cards you will never want to put them down. Jon Racherbaumer, Bill Kalush, Alan Ackerman, Johnny Thompson, Richard Kaufman, Jason England, Justin Miller, Steve Haynes, David Ben, and other pros have tested and enthusiastically approved of the Mandolins.

Mandolins also are the only deck on the market featuring the classic "full-back" Bicycle card case that so many performers prefer.

Available in Red or Blue.


Customer reviews for Bicycle Mandolin Short Deck



Disappointing. I have several gripes with this deck. These issues stand out to me at first glance and I don't think it's just being picky. The shortened end is visibly rough when viewing the edge of the deck. The trimming is gradually inconsistent between the top card and bottom card (from roughly 1mm each side to 2mm left and 1mm right). On top of this, the back is visibly off-center as if these were made from factory seconds. Fine for a quick flash maybe but won't stand up to any real scrutiny next to standard 809s or as a standalone. Side note: tuck is not sealed. Positive note: Bicycles (probably).
