The same beautifully thin borders, marking system, and Master Finish quality you loved about the NOC V3s deck, with subtle enhancements to the stock/finish as EPCC continues their journey to perfection!

Bold, simple, and elegant. Perfect for any application!

Since 2012, simplicity and elegance have defined NOC series. With this 2nd print run in 2015, the BLACK NOC V3S deck utilizes the same features and design of the NOC v3 deck, but with the incredible quality that EPCC continues to develop and enhance. The design of the NOC v3S deck gets to the heart of the cards themselves and eliminates distractions. The deck has a striking back with a solid bar of color and a thin white border. This puts the emphasis on the work you do with the cards, not on the cards themselves.

Expertly Printed in Taiwan

The Blue Crown has teamed up with the Expert Playing Card Company once again, utilizing their incredible Taipei factory and applying the NOC design to their incredible Master finish to ensure exceptional handling for magic tricks and flourishes, as well as incredible durability to withstand even the roughest night with your poker buddies.

Side-Loading Tuck with Reveal

The custom side-loading tuck box matches the minimalism of the cards and carries a useful playing card reveal printed on the inside of the flap. The Ace of Spades and Jokers also carry a minimalistic yet attractive design.

Marking System & Free Video with Purchase

The BLACK NOC V3S backs are marked in a subtle yet easy-to-read manner that allows you to know the SUIT (not value) of any card at a glance. When you purchase the NOC deck, you will receive a FREE 20-minute video download starring Alex Pandrea that teaches you how to use the marking system, as well as perform a few amazing magic routines that utilize the features of the deck.

Because of the simple design, the BLACK NOC deck is perfect for any application. Whether you're into a weekly poker game, performing magic tricks, flourishing, or collecting, the NOC deck is a perfect option.

*NOTE - These decks do not come shrink wrapped.*

The description states the cards are marked and include a download video.

When I received the deck, I did not receive a download link, nor was there an option in the downloads section of my account. I only have access to the discuss button. I have also been unsuccessful in determining the marking system on my own, which is either a testament to the design, or indicative of the fact that the stripper version isn't marked at all, and the ad description is mistaken on both the video and the markings.

Their are two other issues of quality. First, the red ink on the cards is slightly faded, making the red cards to look almost faded pink, and as a result they resemble the cheap cards one finds in a dollar store.

Worse, the stripper cut hasn't been finished at all. Meaning the corners where the cut was made weren't re-rounded and it gives the cards an odd and cheap look, not to mention this means my deck looks like a gimmicked deck and is therefore useless. This is a shame because even the half priced standard bicycle strippers are much better quality with bright red ink and rounded corners. I could overlook the faded red ink, as this may be a (poor) design choice, but the missing video, markings, and most importantly the fact that the cards look like they have been cut weird from the factory means this is definitely a deck I can't and won't use.

I simply expect that If I pay double the price of a standard product, I expect that product be better quality, or at least on par with the less expensive version. In this case, I've paid twice as much for half the quality.

I'd strongly suggest buying the standard bicycle stripper deck as the price is lower and the quality is higher.
