Bicycle Samurai Playing Cards by CC Éditions & Marchand de Trucs

Bicycle Samurai Playing Cards [First Edition] are the heroes of this blog today. I was able to find them on JP Playing Cards site (find a 10% discount below). This deck is dedicated to defenders of persons in the upper ranks of Japan society – the Samurai (the middle and upper echelons of the warrior class).

Playing cards were produced by the French company CC Éditions & Marchand de Trucs and printed by USPCC in 2011.  The deck was available on a special site. Now it is sold out and can be found only on the secondary market.

Playing cards were designed by the English artist Sam Hayles (DOSE Productions). Readers of this blog should know him as this is the fourth his design featured on pages of the blog. This deck was designed for magic practice. So it has a minimum of customization (a custom tuck case, the Ace of Spades, Jokers and backs).

The deck: 52 playing cards + 3 Jokers (two of them are identical) + 1 blank card. Poker size. All court cards and number cards are Bicycle standard cards. Playing cards were printed on Bicycle Stock and have Air-Cushion Finish.
