Bicycle | Made in the USA

Sep 17th, 2010 | Categories: Made in the USA | by Michael Williams

A fellow Clevelander sent me these cards from the United States Playing Card Company (good name) and I couldn’t resist posting them. Added bonus, they are made right here in the USA and hold a place on the old American List. [The United States Playing Card Company]

    That back design is great on those…
    This the same company that supplies all the casinos?

    If those are the Bicycle Limited Edition Series No. 2, I just bought a pack because of this post! That design is EXQUISITE!

    Those look great. Did it list a name on the box? I know some sleight of hand artists that would really dig that style over at theory11.

    I’m so glad you like them. I always find it useful to have a quality deck on hand for those evenings when you want to have a few cold ones and play a little euchre with friends.

    All of Bicycle’s are great great great. During college, I paled around with a girl who was apprenticing with an Atlantic City stage magician who told me that all the pros will only use Bicycle brand cards- for both visual impact and quality.

    Way back in the last century the folks at Bicycle very kindly photocopied some antique cards in their collection for me when I sent them a note enquiring about them. This made a very big impression on me.

    What series is this set of cards? The back design looks like the Limited Edition Series 2, but the finish here appears almost like linen. Searches on the internets don’t show the LE Series 2 with the same back finish.

    Great post. When I was a young boy my great uncle worked for USPC in Cincinnati. When they visited us he always brought us decks of cards in all shapes and sizes. I had forgotten about them until I saw this. Thank you!

    Would love to know the series and/or where to order as these are beautiful. No results are coming up via google search for this specific deck.
