Bicycle Favole Playing Cards by USPCC

The scheduled release of this deck is 1st of March 2013 (USPCC)

Bicycle Favole Playing Cards were inspired by Victoria Frances’ best selling book on Fantasy Art. After the success of her Tarot deck, a new one was redesigned to play and collect- Bicycle Favole Playing Cards. Just like the Bicycle Alchemy & Bicycle Anne Stokes decks, this deck features a different Fantasy Art drawing on each card. This deck will have all the features you have come to expect and love from a Bicycle Deck.” ~ BMPokerworld [the link is mine]



Bicycle Club Tattoo Playing Cards by USPCC

The scheduled release of this deck is 1st of April 2013 (USPCC)

Bicycle Club Tattoo Playing Cards were designed by the Club Tattoo Artists. Club Tattoo is a national chain of tattoo studios, with six locations. Club Tattoo was originally created by Chester Bennington, the leader singer of Linkin park. He then partnered with Sean and Thora Dowdell to create the hottest tattoo studio in the world.

The deck itself features one of a kind tattoo artwork on each card. Just like the Alchemy and Anne Stokes decks, all 52 cards are completely different. The artwork is bold, bright and beautiful and the black back coloring, really makes the vibrant colors of the card faces pop.” ~ BMPokerworld



Bicycle Everyday Zombie Playing Cards by USPCC

The scheduled release of this deck is 1st of May 2013 (USPCC)

Bicycle Everyday Zombie Playing Cards images come straight from everyday zombie life, by renowned zombie artist Rob Sacchetto. This deck features 54 different and unique images, one for each card and joker. The back design shows a multicolor zombie gang, looking for their next meal.” ~ BMPokerworld



Bicycle Escape Deck by USPCC

The release date is unknown at this point. (USPCC)

During World War II, the United States Playing Card Company joined forces with American and British intelligence agencies to create a very special deck of cards. This deck was specifically created to help Allied prisoners of war escape from German POW camps.

This deck of cards became known as the “map deck.” It was made by hiding maps of top-secret escape routes between the two paper layers that make up all modern playing cards.

These decks, when soaked in water, could be peeled apart to reveal hidden maps that allowed escaping prisoners to find their way to safety.

Due to the nature of the war and the prosecution of war crimes thereafter, the map decks remained a closely guarded secret for many years after the war ended. The secrecy surrounding them was so high, that no one really knows how many were produced or how many have survived.

There is one on display at the Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. and another one said to be in private hands. It’s possible that these are the ONLY two surviving examples. The card shown in the picture here is a limited edition reproduction made in April of 1990.” ~ USPCC



Bicycle Truth Garden by Zhang Xiaowo

The release date is unknown at this point (16 of February 2013 in China). Zhang Xiaowo will sell them on this site.

2500 decks were printed [by USPCC], but as you know I am Chinese, and in fact I designed this deck mostly for Chinese magic lovers and collectors.So most of them will go to China, say 1400 of them.  850 will be selling overseas, that is the quantity you could get. And the rest will be kept for personal use for myself.” ~ Zhang Xiaowo



Takefu Playing Cards by Eric Duan

The release date is unknown at this point. (USPCC)
