I just received my order of English Laundry Playing Cards
that are being sold exclusively on Dan & Dave Buck's website
. After opening a pack, looking at all of the really incredible hand drawn face cards and custom box design, I must say that I thoroughly enjoy these cards. Although they may be printed on Bicycle stock they really don't feel too
much like a regular deck of Bicycle cards. The cards are somewhat thin but the great thing is that they don't bend quite as easily as your standard Rider Back's. The edges as well feel quite smooth which is nice, although I think the cards would have been a lot better if they had some sort of finish to them.
Regardless, these cards have been working out greatly when I incorporated them into my close-up routine, and these cards have received more wonder and awe, than any other deck I have performed with. So if you like to collect all sorts of different types of cards like myself, or just want a new deck to play around with, then I highly suggest picking up one or two. These cards have also been printed in limited quantity so pick some up now because it's not clear on whether or not they will be reprinted in the future.
