The Dead Man's Deck


In 1876 legendary cowboy and gambler Wild Bill Hickok was playing cards in Deadwood, Dakota Territory. He was shot in the back before he could play his hand... and legend has it that he held Aces and Eights: The Dead Man's Hand.

We celebrate the legacy of Wild Bill Hickok and the gambling lore of the Wild West with The Dead Man's Deck. This beautiful deck is filled with details surrounding Wild Bill and his storied past. The deck's design is true to the time period, with an ornate, grey pattern and old-style faces. And of course, the Aces and Eights are, well, bloody.

The defining feature of this deck, though, is that it has a bullet hole shot right through the middle of it, along with a commemorative musket ball lodged in the hole. Every deck comes with this musket ball and a scorched bullet hole through the entire deck.

Exceeded Expectations

Considering they have a hole in the middle, these cards handle and feel amazing, and with some nice details on them as well, like the burn around said hole in them, and the "bullet" in them, it's such a fun sight to see decks that put these little details and novelties in them!

Eights and aces

Love the deck with the old worn look. And the King Arthur court cards are nice, for an old time deck. Also the blood splotches on some of the other cards are not overdone !! All in all I like this old west deck !!

A great talking point.

These cards are unique, they work as both a conversation starter and a starter for a routine. The musket ball is a great little extra that can be used in some effects, but this deck has some limits but just use your imagination and this deck will be a wonder.

Bruno Valente (Aveiro, PT)

Absolutely love these cards. That's really a "out of the box" deck with a cool story and a great design. The hole in the cards and the bullet take the deck to another level. Best price I could find in the market.
