Standard Bicycle playing card deck with a Brand new look from United States Playing Card Company!

Design: Paul Harris directed the development of the new 809 Bicycle back with USPCC. Paul worked with three world class artists (including Garrett Thomas) to create a soothing traditional looking back that's instantly trusted as part of the Bicycle family. And yes, this classic looking deck even features the trademarked Bicycle Ace of Spades, Joker and the traditional box.

Quality: Richard Turner worked directly with USPCC manufacturing to ensure the new Bicycle 809 Mandolin has a superior cut and quality. These are exquisitely crafted decks! Once you feel these cards you will never want to put them down.

Couple of Bad Decks Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 28th, 2012
I bought 3 decks. All 3 had an inward, end-for-end warp. This made faroing considerably difficult. My search for a deck that facilitates a smooth faro-shuffle was my main reason for purchasing the 809s. Needless to say, I was disappointed.

Further, one of the decks was considerably roughly cut--as if there were tiny burrs along the sides. White splotches were visible on the sides of this deck, as well. The two other decks had no splotching and weren't "rough."

The paper stock seems a bit softer than the 808s. I can't see any advantage-I think I prefer the slightly stiffer stock.

The above drawbacks aside, the design is a nice alternative to the 808s, and, incidentally, I ordered a set of (blue) Twilight cards--which are 809s--and they were not warped. They faroed fine.

Poor Quality Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 29th, 2012
The red-backed Mandolins that I get are perfect. The blue ones suck for some reason. It could be that I just got a bad batch. They are always warped inwards and when you square the deck and look at the sides, you see white spots all over.

High quality cards Report this review

These cards are of excellent quality and I truly love this inspired back design. I think even the creators agree with me that the new design looks massively superior, otherwise there is no point in making so many refinements. A change of the two center angels from riding a bike to holding a mandolin would suffice as "a significant alteration" for legal purposes. The four corner angels need not be replaced by butterflies if the intention was to look similar. Those butterflies are purposefully placed there because they look absolutely gorgeous. This improvement is visually illustrated by the ingenious revision of the angel wings. Total perfection!
