The Dead Man's Deck: Unharmed Edition
After receiving countless requests for a "hole-less version", Vanishing Inc. is thrilled to introduce the "Dead Man's Deck: Unharmed Edition". With the exception of not including a bullet hole, every aspect of this amazing deck of cards has been beautifully customized in the same way as the original. It has been carefully aged to resemble the playing cards used during the era of Wild Bill Hickock. The "Dead Man's Hand" (Aces over Eights) that Wild Bill was rumored to be holding at the time of his death has also been splattered with blood to commemorate this fateful day.
Manufactured by Cartamundi on premium Slimline B9 stock, the "Dead Man's Deck: Unharmed Edition" is now the perfect way to infuse a touch of history into any gambling routine or liven up your favorite card trick or cardistry flourish.
Good quality and fair shipping
The cards have a beautiful replication of that historic old west feel, and the backing of the cards is one of my favorites I've collected so far.
I'm pleased that the Dead Man's deck has been re-issued without that unconvincing bullet hole, which was the reason why I wasn't interested in the original edition. I like the historical styling of the graphic design very much. The simulation of aged stock feels inevitably contrived only because the cards cannot be two things at once. This attempt at a distressed effect is much more successful than many other similar attempts.
