Cost: ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
These aren’t easy to find cheap. I magically got this one for 4$. The rest usually land between 15-25$ on eBay.

Sahara : Bee Ace of Spades

Sparingly found on Ebay. Easy to spot due to its exterior light blue bee box.

My favorite card stock at the moment. Stiff for USPC branded card. Stiff like Anglos. But better since you have poker standard index. As well as bright red on faces rather than casino red. Fans well. Spreads strong. Crisp snap. Holds durable.

Sahara : Spreads cleanly.

Back Design: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○
Lighter blue and white back. Not exactly borderless , but isn’t exactly white bordered either. Standard Bee faces and Ace of Spades.

Sahara : the back design appears to use more than one color...but its actually just white, black, and gradients of blue.

Cards have a magic ‘stick’ to each other type feel found in older bee stock.

-Picked one of these up back in February. Used it on and off at times. Life of deck is quite good to hold this long. Cleanest card stock I’ve found. Too bad its not reproducible. I would use these everyday if I could. Heavily biased/favorable towards this deck. So much awesome. Haha. Don’t buy them on eBay so I can have them haha.

–Kudos ♪♫
