These cards are offered to the public in commemoration of the enduring mystery of The Expert at the Card Table and its author, S.W. Erdnase. Among the men whose names have been discovered as anagrammatic equivalents (?) to the pseudonymous writer, W.E. Sanders emerges as perhaps the most compelling. A longtime card player and a student of magic, Sanders was the kind of person who took half-a-dozen decks with him on a camping trip. Skilled in deception, he rearranged the letters in his name, tore pages from his diaries and snuck out of his home for late night visits to high-rolling private clubs. A mining engineer and professional writer by trade, Sanders was eccentric and brilliant, offering no justification and seeking no credit for the knowledge he imparted. But whatever the result of his actions may be, if they inspire lovers of card entertainment and legerdemain, then they will have provided the primary motive of card table artifice, as it needs the mystery.
This is a great deck of cards. They feel great, look great, and they don't look suspicious
love it, great for fans, love the looks
