Jerry's Nuggets (Vintage 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 Jerrys Nuggets 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!



Produced by Expert Playing Card Company overseas, these decks feature the famous JN FINISH! JN Finish is a firmer card stock. We believe these cards will be as close to the 1970 originals as anyone has been able to achieve! We've also managed to replicate the off-centre seal, the iconic red tear strip, AND the popular long tongue-flap!

Good feeling!

Not as good as the modern feel for my preference, but feel great!

Lives up to the name!

Having been lucky enough to handle a legit deck of nuggets in the past, but not able to afford a deck of my own, I hopped on getting these as soon as I could, and I am very happy to say the feel as close as possible, honestly. Thy have a more "plastic" feel if I had to describe it, but it doesn't do it justice. They handle like BUTTER, and in the best way.


I knew going in that these weren't going to be USPCC-quality, as after all, they have a version printed with them. I honestly wish I had bought those instead, but my curiosity to experience the "real" original finish and feel of these cards got the best of me. All I can say is... they're weird. They feel nice at times, and worse at others. And the long flap on the tuck case is just annoying, haha, but that's relatively minor. Honestly if you're as curious as I was, then I think you should buy these cards, just don't expect them to feel like even basic bikes. They do look great, though, so I'll be buying a few of the USPCC-made Jerry's Nuggets decks!


The cards were great. A little slicker and more of a plasticy feel then what I was expecting. But the stock is great so that made it easier to use. The cards actually helped me be able to adjust to the slickness so now I can use my Noc and Murphy Magic deck that I had bought and didn’t use because of the slickness. Now I can use both decks in my street magic! The cards are a great color. If need a deck to use after my cards go south, would buy these again!

awesome feel

nice cards. ready to use straight from the box

Good for packet cuts.

Cards feel nice out of the box, but tend to clump after a few days. not so good for fans or spreads but amazing for packet cutting.
