If I had one wish it would be to burn all the custom cards in the world
That would be a dumb wish. While some custom cards are just show there are many others that are printed on high quality stocks and use the web press. Standard Bikes, Bees, and Tally Hos are generally printed and the standard press with low grade quality controls. That's why you usually get cards slightly misaligned and rougher edges on those cards. Custom cards allow you to get access to the same quality cards, and sometimes the same stocks and finishes, that the casinos use on there cards. Don't get all pretentious thinking that custom cards are just some marketing ploy used to dupe 15 year olds out of their allowance....well actually they are..
but they are a marketing ploy that has been around almost as long as card manufacturers. Prior to "magic companies" producing their own custom cards, cigarette companies, alcohol companies, and all kinds of companies would release limited run decks of cards that were generally printed on high quality paper and presses. So contrary to popular belief, at least the one falsely promoted amongst the "Red Backed Bike Nazis," custom cards are NOT new or unique to the rise of the Internet magic shops. E and T-11 jumped on the custom card band wagon after the big name Vegas Casinos, after RJ Reynolds, and after many other major companies. The worst thing about having a superior attitude against custom cards is that it ignores the fact that card collecting is a viable hobby in its own right.
All that said....the Bike Titanium's look like crap to me. But, to somebody out there they might be a ting of beauty. It's not my place to judge them....is it yours?
