A legend reborn!

Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards have been remastered to become your everyday deck of cards.

At first glance, these Modern Feel Jerry's Nugget Playing Cards look identical to the original Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards you know and love. Same face and back design, and same red or blue color. However, once you take them out of the case, you’ll realize they offer SO MUCH MORE!

Modern Feel Jerry's Nugget Playing Cards were built to be your new everyday carry. Printed on thin-crushed, premium stock by the US Playing Card Company, they offer exceptional performance for cardists and magicians, while a traditional cut also ensures faro shuffles can be conducted with ease. Combine this insane functionality with a crazy low price and you have a true gem that every card enthusiast needs to add to their collection.

Just be warned, this affordability combined with the popularity of Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards means these 1st edition Modern Feel Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards won’t be around for long. So, add a couple blue or red decks to your cart, or a few of both to complete your collection, and checkout before it’s too late!

What are Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards?

About 47 years ago, Jerry’s Nugget Casino in Las Vegas manufactured a new signature deck of cards for their table games. For some unknown reason, the casino didn’t end up using them in live action and instead stored them away in a warehouse. Little did they know, these playing cards would eventually become one of the most sought after deck of cards ever made

Roughly a decade later, the abandoned playing cards resurfaced at Jerry’s Nugget Casino. However, the weren’t being used on the blackjack table and were instead being sold as a $2 souvenir deck in the gift shop. This is how Lee Asher happened upon them and the rest is history. He quickly spread the news about the remarkable Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards and it wasn’t long before a brick of these collectable playing cards was commanding prices equivalent to a used car.

The fame of Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards rose to meteoric heights before the original stock completely sold out in late 1999. Every deck had been purchased, yet, collectors still yearned for them. Secondhand prices skyrocketed and resourceful scam artists took advantage of eager collectors by selling counterfeit decks. This inspired Lee to collaborate with Expert Playing Card Company to gain the rights to reprint these iconic cards legally.

Following 3 years of stressful licensing negotiations, Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards are available again. This time in a functional Modern Feel and an exclusive collector’s edition Vintage Feel.

  • BGG Reviewer asks: Is there anything in the coating or embossing that makes these feel and handle differently than other USPCC produced decks?

    • 1. Tony answers: Nope! I think it similar to any other Air Cushion USPCC deck.
    • 2. Kim answers: the vintage feel probably feel quite different in some ways
    • 3. Kim answers: it does say thin-crushed, premium stock by the US Playing Card Company, they offer exceptional performance for cardists and magicians, while a traditional cut also ensures faro shuffles can be conducted with ease
    • 4. Derek answers: USPCC Decks printed over a certain number (23,000+ perhaps?) are printed on their web press. This has a distinct feel which is often quite nice and this deck handles similarly to some of the recent ORBIT decks who were able to be printed on the web press.

  • Ash asks: Hi I brought these over a month ago, when are they being shipped as not had an update and your site says November and it’s now December! Thank you Ash

    • 1. Vanishing Inc. Magic responds: The supplier has changed the shipping date to 12/30/2019.
  • Neal asks: Regarding the Jerry’s Nugget decks, which feel most like the original, the Vintage or the Modern? I’m leaning towards the Vintage.

    • 1. Kim answers: Vintage is designed to feel like the originals, i myself have not held an original deck, but the vintage is thicker and has a different finish, they feel nice, they spread well. The Modern Feels are more like Bicycle cards, but i think there is a bit of difference, I really like them!

Customer reviews for Jerry's Nugget Playing Cards (Modern Feel | Red/Blue)

Reviewer

William

Thin, smooth and snappy. The deck looks like it is missing cards when compared to a standard Bicycle deck which I personally love. Easy to handle and faro right out of the box.

 
Reviewer

Victor

Jerry's are back! They handle beautifully. When I first heard about these I was a little apprehensive that they might not be as good as other decks of playing cards, but they handle just as well as any good quality deck does. Thanks for bringing these back!!

 
Reviewer

Gerard

Great deck of cards. I love how thin they are, I find it's easier to do slights with these than a regular deck of bicycle cards. The design is very cool, I love how they finally decided to bring these cards back!

 
Reviewer

Noel

One of my favourite decks. I've seen these in some old videos and I never thought I'd get to own them because people said they were so rare. Now they're available from Vanishing Inc! They have a great feel to them, I find it easier to faro cards with these than any other deck I have tried.

 
Reviewer

Isaac

Some would say these are the best looking cards ever created! Very neat design, and they handle like a dream. Ideal for slights and flourishes.

 
Reviewer

Harry

Really fun deck of cards. They were out of stock for years but they’re back now and they are just as good if not better than before. I love how now there are multiple colours available!

 
Reviewer

Stuart

Great deck of cards right out the box, I didn’t need to break them then in to be able to do perfect faros. Maybe I’ve just gotten better at doing them but I found this deck of cards was particularly good for the faro.

 
Reviewer

Teddy

A modern classic! They look great and feel great. Highly recommend. A++++

 
Reviewer

I’m a collector and I had to buy another few decks of these, they’re too nice not to play with! Good quality cards and I’m happy with the purchase.

I bought the red version of this deck, and it's great! Really high quality and the handling is fabulous. Love the design, too! Really recommend it for someone who wants a Deck with faro out of the box.
