The most iconic deck of cards ever to be created. Now Jerry's Nuggets Playing Cards are your every day cards.
In 1970, Jerry's Nugget Casino printed what would become one of the most collectible playing card decks ever manufactured by the United States Playing Card Company. They made them for the tables but opted not to use them and put them in storage for 20 years! Playing card expert, Lee Asher, recognised the unique quality and feel of these cards and began evangelising about them. In due course, Jerry's Nugget playing cards became legendary. By 1999, these cards sold out, yet the demand continued to grow. Today, authentic Jerry's Nugget cards are among the most desirable and expensive modern decks on the market. After more than three years of pursuit and negotiation, a deal with Jerry's Nugget Casino and Expert Playing Card Company is making them available again.
The vintage feel decks are produced by the Expert Playing Card Company in Taiwan and feature JN finish which is a much firmer card stock. We believe these cards will be as close to the originals as anyone has been able to achieve. We've also managed to replicate the off-centre seal, the iconic red tear strip, AND the popular long tongue-flap. As noted, the bottom of the tuck, they will be clearly marked so these decks cannot be confused with the original 1970 decks.
Please note that stock of the blue is expected next week, we are yet to confirm when the vintage feel red decks will arrive.
