Origins Playing Cards
The sequel to the Origins Playing Cards decks, which were voted United Cardists Best Overall Deck of 2014. Featuring two new decks inspired by rare 16th century originals.
The Shadows deck is a modern deck inspired by historic originals. Printed by the United States Playing Card Company, the deck features completely custom art based on research of rare historic art sheets sourced over months from respected archives including the British Museum, Bibliothèque nationale de France, Archives Department of Seine-Maritime, and Fitzwilliam Museum of Cambridge.
The Rouen 1567 deck is the Shadows companion, a carefully crafted recreation of the original historic deck, with full body one way court cards that inspired the playing cards we know and love today. Printed by the United States Playing Card Company on high quality Bicycle stock.
The Rouen 1567 deck features a premium quality tuck case with embossing. The cards feature accurate recreations of extremely rare historic cards from 1567. These cards are drawn as closely as possible to the originals, with the addition of indices for playability. The subtle back design is a design based on historic references as the originals had plain backs. A very special addition to any collection or playing occasion.
An ornate premium quality tuck case, embossed and hot stamped with two metallic foils. The cards are entirely custom full colour face cards, printed with ornate metallic ink backs on the USPCC’s renowned high quality Bicycle stock.
