Bicycle Vintage Classic Playing Cards - magic

Looking like they were waiting in a drawer for a century, waiting to be found again and used, Bicycle Vintage Classic Playing Cards are striking indeed! 

During the years alone, the tuck case parchment has yellowed, but the red color has remained vibrant. The cards themselves have aged significantly and show some wear, though the Aces and Jokers still show their original artwork. 

This deck is an excellent homage to decks of days gone by, and everyone will take notice of this the next time you use these cards.

This deck of playing cards is printed by Bicycle and produced by Collectable Playing Cards.

Summary: An antique looking deck with stunning card backs

The Vintage Classic deck has a faux-aged look, yellowed tones on the tuck box indicating what we can find inside. Unlike similar decks, what sets this apart is a very stylish and unique design on the card backs, which have a distinctive diamond shape filling much of the card canvas. A black triangle is central on all four edges, making flourishes like fans look very attractive and eye-catching.

The card faces all feature a classic and traditional design. Each card has a unique dirty, weathered, and worn out look - different for each card - just as you'd expect them to look if they had been played with over the course of a century or more.

The narrow bordered court cards are particularly attractive, with beautiful artwork that fills up most of the card space. The pips and style of the number cards is traditional in style, but look worn as is noticeable by apparent scratch marks in the pips, and colour tones and shading.

Along with the court cards, my favourites in this deck are the stylish Aces, which all feature oversized pips inside an ornate design. A pair of jovial jesters completes the deck with Jokers, with the two remaining cards being a double-backer and an ad card.

Despite the vintage look, this deck is a high quality Bicycle product, with the usual high standards for printing and handling, and it's also very practical and functional. It's ideal for anyone wanting a deck to have a genuinely antique flavour and look. - BoardGameGeek reviewer EndersGame
