Formed in 1965, the Grateful Dead became a cultural institution that has spanned over half a century. Fusing rock and roll, folk, and jazz with avant-garde, visual, and literary traditions - they became one of the most popular, enduring, and influential bands in American history.
A world of color - THE OUTER PACKAGING
The box packaging is printed using antique letterpress machines dating back to the 1960's - with six layers of vibrant color, embossed for a unique tactile sensation. The front face features the skull & roses at center, with custom composition surrounding.
The back design AND THE ACES
Featuring the unmistakable steal your face logo in the middle, the back design encapsulates iconic imagery that Dead Heads have come to know and love over many decades. The terrapins play their tune, and the dancing bears swing to every note. The Aces also feature stunning full-art design, complete with logos and mascots that are cemented in the band's history.
A court of colors - JACKS, QUEENS AND KINGS
The court cards are simply jaw-dropping. Continuing the use of iconic logos and mascots - bears, terrapins, and skeletons are prominently featured in vibrant detail. Every inch of the deck is fully custom, including the font style and design of each individual suit.
Printed using hemp-fiber paper. Every aspect of the cards is 100% made in America, using FSC-certified paper infused with hemp fibers on the tuck case packaging. The cards are safely sealed within, with an ivory matte sticker seal featuring the Stealie skull.
such cool little secrets to each card, definitely recomend
I guess i was unlucky but mine came broken but it’s still an incredible deck full of colors!
If you aren't already familiar with Theory11, then I'll start simply by saying that THEY NEVER MISS. Every deck they produce is top notch and lives up to the standard we've all come to expect from USPCC. But where they stand apart is how much care they put into designing their decks, and this Grateful Dead deck is one of the most impressive examples of this. Every minute detail is tailored to perfection, and there isn't a single aspect of these cards that feels lazy or overlooked. From the intensely detailed and eye-popping back design, to the unique court cards and aces, even the pips and font are unlike any deck I've ever had. Before you even handle the cards, just the look and feel of the embossed tuck case is enough to tell you these cards are on another level. Even the sticker seal looks so nice you'll hesitate to break through it. This is a fantastic deck for really any consumer, whether for card games or magic, regardless of whether or not you're a Grateful Dead fan. But I will say, the details in this deck are so gorgeous and meticulously constructed, that even the most seasoned Deadheads will absolutely love this deck. You'd be hard pressed to find such a top notch quality deck in terms of handling, durability, aesthetics, detail, and affordability. If buying these crossed your mind even once, DO IT, you won't regret it.
It's absolutely stunning
