If you click on the 'New arrivals' link http://www.penguinmagic.com/newarrivals.php the first thing you'll see is the blank back deck. Yet when I clicked the link to this product I was told it's out of stock! Is it so popular that it's already been grabbed up?

If they're blank backed, then what's the point of calling them "Bicycle"? Don't many brands use the same design for the faces?

And Jokers, if you use them. I just can't find a use for blank backed cards, though I can find many uses for blank faced and completely blank cards.

i doubt they have actually recieved the initial shipment, and just have put up the page now.

Or, they could have them ,but they are not ready in the warehouse for shipping.

Exactly.

And almost all cards have slightly different faces. As mentioned, Joekrs and Aco o' Spades for Bike especially. Also, now you know the size will match all your other Bikes. No surprises, when you get all crappy blank backed and you cant use them with all yuor Bike decks. You now know they fit.

Also you now know they are Bike quality. I myself, wouldnt buy any blank or special cards form penguin unless I knew they were Bikes to go along with my others.

Blank backed bikes are printed on "Bicycle" stock. That is the same stock used with regular Bikes.

just a question, if I buy a poker sized Tally Ho deck, it would still be the same size of my poker sized bycicle deck, shouldn't it? I mean they are both Poker Size
