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!
In homage to the original decks, we have decided to print with USPCC on their premium stock (formally called Bee stock).
We are THIN CRUSHING this stock to the thickness of an original Jerry's card. And while these new decks won't feel the same as the originals, we've modernised them for today's tastes. They will be the perfect thickness (or thinness, in this case!) to handle today's sleights, flourishes and cardistry with ease.The Modern Feel Jerry's decks will be traditionally cut, which makes them perfect for faro work! They will shuffle bottom up so table faros will be a breeze.
