Jerry's Nuggets (Modern Feel)

The most iconic deck of cards ever to be created. Now Jerry's Nuggets Playing Cards are your EVERYDAY cards!

In 1970, Jerry's Nugget Casino printed what would become one of the most collectible playing card decks ever manufactured by the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC). They made them for the tables but opted not to use them and put them in storage for 20 years! Playing card expert, Lee Asher, recognized the unique quality and feel of these cards and began evangelizing about them. In due course, Jerry's Nugget playing cards became legendary.

By the fall of 1999, these cards sold out, yet the demand continued to grow. Today, authentic Jerry's Nugget cards are among the most desirable and expensive modern decks on the market. After more than three years of pursuit and negotiation, a deal with Jerry's Nugget Casino and Expert Playing Card Company is making them available again!

In homage to the original decks, we have decided to print with USPCC on their Premium stock (formally called Bee stock). We are THIN CRUSHING this stock to the thickness of an original Jerry's card. And while these new decks won't feel the same as the originals, we've modernized them for today's tastes. They will be the perfect thickness (or thinness, in this case!) to handle today's sleights, flourishes and cardistry with ease. You will love these cards!


The Modern Feel Jerry's decks will be TRADITIONALLY CUT, which makes them perfect for faro work! They will shuffle bottom up so table faros will be a breeze.


Unlike almost all other custom decks that are printed one sheet (one deck) at a time, these Modern Feel Jerry's Nugget decks will print on the biggest and fastest press in the USPCC factory - THE WEB PRESS!

The Web press prints on huge rolls of paper and works extremely quickly, printing both sides, crushing the stock, coating both sides, heat curing the cards and cutting out the sheets in about one tenth of a second per deck! This unique printing process is the best available way to make cards at USPCC.

Once you feel these cards, you will see that the quality speaks for itself.

  • Traditionally cut
  • Original Back and Face design, including the original Jokers and Ace of Spades

Really awesome feeling cards

You can immediately tell these are different than the original Jerry's nugget. The crushed stock and the new finish on the cards really make it feel more premium. However I feel like these are more made towards sleight of hand and magic than cardistry. But that's just me, since I like stickier cards for that sort of thing. I'd highly recommend giving them a shot though!

Amazing Cards!

These cards are a great recreation of a classic. They’re crushed thin, so they handle well for dribbles, springs, and just general cardistry. The design stays true to the original Jerry’s Nuggets, all the way down to the stamp. It comes with a blank card and a red version of the Jokers instead of ad cards. This is a really great deck, and one of my favorites!

Iconic cards that handle like a dream

The beloved and coveted deck is finally available for everyone at an affordable price! These cards have been iconic in the magic/cardistry community for years and had an outrageous price tag to them for a longgggggg time! I read mixed reviews on the vintage feel, so that’s why I went with the moderns. I do not regret that decision one bit! They look and feel amazing and handle like a dream. I also love the variety of colors that these come in. Hands down an amazing deck at an affordable price. I highly recommend them and I’m definitely planning on picking up some more.

Great Looking Decks

I love the coral and teal-colored decks! I hope they produce these colors in the vintage feel down the road.


I mean the title says it all. Just wow. The cards came in great timing. They feel AMAZING and already BROKEN IN right out the box!! I was amazed in the quality of Jerry’s Nuggets. Now there’s one thing... I’ve had them a week and they are getting clumpy and tend to stick just a bit. Which IMO is not a bad thing when doing packet cuts and cardistry. Fans don’t look great. But none of that turns me away from this masterpiece. I will be buying a brick of All 4 different jerrys(vintage,gilded,foil,modern) in the near future. The story behind these cards makes them a forever classic! Thanks 52Kards! Great service great products!

Beautiful Reproduction

I just love the look of this deck.
