The Dead Man's Deck is one of our fastest-selling custom card projects ever. Now it's back in a more useful and usable edition. This deck celebrates Wild Bill Hickock, who was shot during a poker game in 1876. It was rumored that at the time he was killed, he was holding Aces over Eights--now known as the Dead Man's Hand. In this commemorative deck, the cards held in his hand are adorned with a smattering of blood. Each card in the pack has been aged and treated to look like cards used during the era of Wild Bill Hickock and his cohorts in Deadwood. The original version contained an actual bullet hole going all way through the cards. This made it an oddity and an unusual deck of collectors. But it also made it essentially unusable for card games and magicians. This edition eliminates this bullet hole; now it's a gorgeous, aged, but perfectly normal pack of cards.
Printed by Cartamundi on Slimline B9 stock, this deck feels perfect for gambling routines, displays, flourishes, and magic.
