Bicycle Playing Cards Return to the Gold Standard!
Richard Turner's brand new Gold Seal Bicycle Playing Cards are The Gold Standard of Bicycle Playing Cards and are finally released for use by professional magicians, gamblers, card mechanics, and every playing card aficionado looking for an awesome deck of playing cards.
Magicians have been pestering Richard Turner for may years to finally use the same card-making techniques he created for his Gamblers and Bee Play Cards. Magicians needed a top of the line Bicycle Playing Cards deck for serious sleight of hand.
The famous trademarked 808 Rider Back Bicycle Playing Cards.
The magic community begged Richard to add in two normal matching Jokers in his Bicycle cards deck. He went one step further and included a blank playing card with the Rider Bike back, so that you can perform reverse fans. Even magicians who create gambling style acts will love the blank bicycle playing card. It's useful as a cut-card when doing Greek deals and other techniques needing a special bottom card.
Each deck of Gold Seal Playing Cards is made from Bee stock, world famous for its flexibility, and long-lasting durability. They are stamped to a caliper/thickness that makes classic techniques like bottom and center dealing easy, and are embossed to a depth that will not break down the structural integrity of the playing cards, this means each playing card can breathe correctly. This reduces the gum-up and hangers sometimes caused by finger oils.
Since these playing cards are created to Richard Turner's high professional standards, they are Traditionally Cut!
Unlike most of the playing cards sold in magic shops, the cutting blade used in traditionally cut cards begins at the face of each card and moves through to its back. This creates a sharp edge on the underside of each card and a rounded edge, which improves weave during a shuffle.
Traditionally cut cards allow magicians to easily interlace the cards for crisp, clean shuffles, especially with some of the more advanced shuffling moves like the one-handed shuffle, and the faro shuffle.
For over 100 years traditional card cutting was the norm, but were phased out around 16 years ago. Casinos insist on traditionally cut cards, and so should you.
If you want the very best, make sure the playing cards you use and "Traditionally Cut for the Professional."
'So, take it from a fan whose interest in quality playing cards was piqued four decades ago: a deck of Gold Seal Bicycle Playing Cards simply feels right in the hand, shuffles flawlessly right out of the box, and will enhance the performance of professional magicians everywhere.' - Bruce T. Samboy
