I have another Bicycle deck of "Big" cards, and this deck is different. The cards are the same
size,width and length, however, this box of cards has extremely rounded corners, are not air cushion
cards, and do not look like a normal Bicycle card. The picture here on the Penguin advertizing is
that of the "real" Bicycle card and not the one with the rounded corners that you will get if you
order these cards. Don't get me wrong,....they say on the box that they are Bicycle cards, but if
you have the more expensive big Bicycle cards that you are hoping these match,..they won't. Expect
this deck in the box, to also be about 1/4 less in thickness than the "real" Bicycle Big Deck." So,
if you're thinking this is a great deal because they seem to be about cheaper than other Big
Bicycle cards you have found....thats why.

I actually purchased two of these for the boxes... I needed replacements. Unfortunately, these
cards are printed on EXTREMELY thin stock, and is probably half the thickness of a regular deck of
cards. While they might make a good DIY R/S deck, or for decorations, don't expect the normal jumbo
size card deck or box.
These are the new "big box" style of jumbo cards from the US Playing Card Co. The older style has
The differences? Not many. Neither had an air cushion finish. These new
cards are the same size (length and width), but are thinner than the old style. I actually think
they handle better for many applications. I did not find them to be flimsy at all and the box takes
up less space in my case, which is nice.
Best of all, they are priced well here at
Penguin. Get some.
Something about holding cards has always calmed me down. It's strange that I only recently started
to learn card tricks. The only thing about this deck that makes me sad is that the box is kind of
flimsy so I will have to find an alternative way to store them in the long run because the box
itself kind of fell apart. Perhaps the glue wasn't strong enough? I plan to use these cards as props
in movies and for certain tricks when I get better. It does take some time to figure out how to
shuffle them. Overall I really like them a lot and I enjoy tripping my friends and family out with
this larger than life deck. Sure there are bigger ones bit they aren't bicycle which is just so
classic. That alone sold me. Also, not the smartest idea in the world to use this around kids. They
are sturdy, but a smaller deck is much more stronger.
This is the exact deck that is used in the pricing game "Card Game" on "The Price Is Right". That's
why I recently purchased a deck of big Bicycle red playing cards. I'm building my own Card Game
prop, & plan to host my own version of the Card Game. If you're a huge fan of "The Price Is Right,"
& if really like the Card Game, I definitely recommend this. You won't be disappointed.
This is not air cushioned bicycle card so please dont expect a free fannable jumbo card
I'm just echoing and seconding other reviews when I say that this is a great bargain for this deck.
And if it's true they've stopped making them, you should grab one! These cards are sturdy and
should wear well - and for a long time.
As far as price goes, that's the only buzzkill, but it is a great tool to have, it demands attention
when on stage, and even more offstage, granted it's harder doing slight of with, you would probably
resort to using kids easy illusions with the cards.
The cards are sturdy
Look good on
Has Bicycle Brand (This is Good because people get skeptical when
they see cards they don't recognize and automatically associate "TRICK DECK," granted it's not your
average sized deck anyways.)
