Wow... For the record, you should all pick these up now... Allow me to elaborate.
Basically, when the US Playing Card Company moved headquarters to Kentucky from Ohio, they
decreed that they would stop making jumbo decks. This means that ANY bicycle jumbo cards that are
out there now are PROBABLY the last of the batch. Go grab these babies while they last!
Okay, scored a few packs? Let me tell you why else I love them.
Penguin sells these for a REDICULOUSLY cheap price. 12 dollars is about 8 dollars cheaper than you
can get them ANYWHERE else on the web.
-Quality: These seem expensive compared to a buck
for a jumbo pack at a dollar store, but the stiffness of these babies is a true testament to their
strength. I use these things in ALL of my parlour routines that use cards. Easy to see, and really
Pick some of these up today!

As I'm unfamiliar with earlier manufacturing of these cards I have nothing to compare them
with,...apples for apples as it were. But in my opinion these are just fine for parlor or stage
work. If a person were looking for something that could be fanned/manipulated like a normal sized
deck I'd have to say they won't work well in that case but otherwise I really can't find any fault
with them. As to durability, well like many things it pays to take care of your props. These are not
going to hold up for a long period if handled roughly, or with dirty hands. I intend to have these
in my 'kit' for a long time!
