good and beautiful cards
Not many people realize that there are a LOT of different types of playing cards produced by the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC), which are the makers of the Bicycle brand decks. This black rider-back is essentially a black version of the standard blue and red versions of the same deck. Aside from that, nothing's changed as much. This deck is made of the standard Bicycle stock with an Air-Cushion finish. They are great for everyday basic uses, whether it is for playing poker, performing magic, or performing card flourishes. These cards are a bit softer than the Casino Bee stock that USPCC also provides so they may not last as long. The air-cushion finish provides a nice glide initially, but over time will begin to clump. What that means is that you won't get an even spread when fanning the cards. Ultimately, These are the type of cards that are meant to be used, discarded, and replaced easily.
I use these cards everyday for games and magic tricks. They are of great quality and are hard to wear down. These can be used for the everyday poker player or the casual card player, or just for kids to play around with. This is the best brand of cards out there!
I love Bicycle and all of their playing cards! I'm a magician and use Bicycle cards all the time. They're easy to use and I love how they feel. They're easy to maneuver. They do everything I need them to do when I need them to do it. Overall, they are great playing cards and they are highly recommended.
I like this playing card very much. I always use it to practice cardistry and sleights in magic, even bringing it outside to perform street magic. This is a good quality deck of cards and I highly recommend it to people who are interested in collecting and performing. The finish is a good air cushion finish and the paper is bicycle stock from USPCC. It's very durable for springs, Lepaul spreads and fans. I and my friends also use this to play poker every weekend and it's still good. One of the best cards that Bicycle has released and I'm giving it a 5 stars. I received it as a prize for a contest in cardistry and it's really good out of the box, a little slippery at first but with a good break-in the cards handles smoothly and is really good for cuts and flourishes. The back design is a slick and simple black bicycle but it gives you a really good impression once you have it in your hand. It is snappy and good for flicking or doing aerials. The dark colored pattern adds flair to the design and simplicity is the one that's making it more beautiful in the eye.
I've been playing cards since I was very young child. And one thing has never changed - Bicycle cards have always been top notch quality. They take the beatings year round - especially when I use them with young children - and still never rip. Granted, I am always sure to buy the ones that are plastic coated. Over the years, it has become harder to find the plastic coated playing cards - so the easiest place to score these are garage sales where older folks sell them. Cards, unfortunately, are getting out dated, and the young folks don't play them as much anymore. Bicycle, over the years, has also tried to use different designs and colors, but these are also hard to find. Target does carry the different styles every now and then Bottom line: if you're looking for a set of cards, get Bicycle ones. Try to get the plastic coated ones if possible. THey'll last you years to come, and will only coast you a few bucks.
Bicycles are always popular, and have become common place. Mainly because they last so long and wear really well. I have some Bicycle decks from the 1980s and they are still as good as new. I play card games with my family with them and perform card magic tricks. A blue-backed Bicycle deck was my first, and still use for some of my current magic tricks because they are so well made. The edges wear nicely, but remain very crisp. Whether you are into playing poker, blackjack, rummy. Or, try many, many card tricks. Or, love to build card houses, and have someone knock it down. Or, throw them and play fifty-two-card-pickup. I always pull out my Bicycles for any occasion. I have used other decks, but they degraded rapidly within a week. But, my Bicycles are still like-new even after my friend creased them. I saw the crease and flattened under some books. The next day, they are still kicking around.
