They’re not in high demand on eBay though, so they’re easy to pick up. Keep in mind that these cards were made in 1985 though. Over 20 years ago. O   o

Comment time. The finish itself feels closest to Streamline so far. Streamline is that plasticky coating on a card without air cushion dimples. Next note. These cards are really thin. Probably the thinnest covered by this blog so far. They even ‘feel’ thin. Like absolut deck. Though those feel heavy for being thin. This stock is light and crisp. If I had access to this stock. I’d use it. The stock basically bends to your will. Crimp it? All good. Just bend it back.

White bordered. Good. Odd back design choice. “You’ve come a long way, baby” written all over. Ew….Well. Got to love the faces though. Pips come in red and blue instead of black. Indices are well done. Court cards are one way faced of old time figures. Neatttt. This deck was well customized. Well decked out. 1 red/1blue joker. Check. Ad card for Virginia Slims. Check. Propaganda is good.

Well. Depends on your exact handling. But the lightness and stock basically contributes as a plus to the execution. And short timeframe. Yay.

-2 decks come in a neat tuck in box. Cool. Virginia Slims. All four aces have VS engraved all over. Red and blue instead of red and black. Cool again. Crisp stock with awesome springs. Cool x3. Fugly back design and finish. Darn. Oh well. What are you going to do. Can’t perfect everything. 1985. 24 years. Good card technology/engineering back then. Someone bring it back please. Another deck for the collection. Promotional propaganda I suppose.

–Kudos ♪♫
