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.
