Name: Norman Rockwell ‘The Saturday Evening Post’
Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○
Typically sold as a tin with two decks, red and green. Shoot for the 3-6$ range. Pretty good if you’re looking for some.
Availability: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○
I received a set for a Christmas gift. I received another set off of Ebay. This specific tin does show up on Ebay, and no one wants them, so you’re probably set there.
Life/Finish: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
Kinda odd. It feels papery, yet it does fan. It would probably be what you’d get if you mixed Aladdin 1001s smooth finish on a more flexible thinner stock. Maybe? These do last awhile though, like an average bicycle deck. I unfortunately ran one deck through a texas hold’em session. Heh. Norman Rockwell…? No, that’s not a finish. Though it should be aha…It also has a bicycle calendar card for 1997 attached to it. Hmm.
Faro: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○
Faro matches the typical bicycle deck in feel. Good.
Back Design: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
-Its one way. (-1)
-It has colored non-white borders. (-1)
-It has santa on the back, but its not the ‘santa’ back (-1) Haha I had a set of santa backs, but I sold them back to Ebay
-Its historical? (-1)
-I won’t use them much (-1)
Blank Fan: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○
I personally use this deck for blank fan practice. Can you tell I still need practice?
-Norman Rockwell. I have no idea who this is. But now it’s a brand??? Of playing cards. It has the USPC seal on it. It has bicycle inside the deck. It’s the typical poker card with the typical poker court faces. It has 3 jokers and a calendar. Thank goodness texas hold’em isn’t popular yet in 1997. I don’t want any more texas hold’em rules in my decks. Dear Mr. USPC-san sir. Stop including Texas hold’em rules in your decks. I think they make a great holiday gift. At least for me ;–;. Makes a sentimental piece of history too? I guess. Saturday Evening post with Santa from Dec 21. 1935. Neat. Oh. I guess Norman Rockwell was the person who did the back art. Haha. So in this two tin, you get two pieces of old history. On a red and green deck that you probably wouldn’t use for magics.
