Name: Bicycle Vintage (#2 Fan Back)
Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○
Typically in the 3-4$ range. The extra price you’re paying is for a back design that’s ’vintage’ and a generally higher quality card. And unavailable in retail stores.
Availability: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
1st (re)printing back in 2006. And then limited. Reserves should be dwindling as we speak.

More durable than your average bicycle. A little thicker too. Kinda closer towards bees. In a good way.

Better than average. Let’s rephrase that. Noticeably easy. I blame the strength of the card.

Vintage Fan Back. Special if you’re old or something. Or like using decks with a ‘vintage’ feel. Or like gambling moves and want to use a bicycle deck that isn’t rider back.(ie go watch the credits for the movie ’shade’. Gets + points for being available in red and blue. Not that I care about blue, but other people might.

Ah. After 20 posts, we repeat a move. I think. Maybe? I forget. Superflip holds well in consistency. At least…I find it easier. Theres enough snap and hold in the card to make this sleight worthwhile. But then…you’re bending the cards… and these decks aren’t something you’d use everyday. Unless you were CDO or something,,,which is like OCD, but all the letters are in the correct order.
-Well. it’s the 2006 bicycle branded card. Vintage edition. Printed in various backs. You get your standard bicycle pips and faces. With a old renewed Ace of Spades. This happens to be #2 of many. Fan back. Because tallies also had a fan back. Tallys? Why do you keep mentioning tallys…what are they…Anyways. Once again. What retail bicycle decks should be. Quality controlled. And not papery bendable thin. Those are no good. Except for practice. But these are awesome. They get ultra bonus points for including blanks instead of poker rules. Which means uh…magic inclined. But why practice with bad and perform with good. that’s called inconsistency. Hm. There has to be a cure for this somehow. Well that’s probably why I’m doing all these posts. Trying to locate a brand that I’ll stock up in bricks on…hm…..
