Bee RJRTC

Welcome back?

Name: RJRTC 2007 Bee
Date: 6.5.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
Hit or miss here. I picked up a brick at 3$ a pack and then some last year in May 2008. The price on Ebay kinda jumps up and down a lot depending on how much you buy, and how fast you kill decks. Lucky me.

If these were readily available like bicycles, me and probably a bunch of other people would truly be happy. Reality says they’re not. Promotional items for camel cigarettes in 2007 , you might be lucky to find them in liquor store rather than eBay. eBay…..darn. huge SIGH. At least I don’t use them everyday.

Can you say AWESOME? As white bordered bees are rare enough to come by in the first places, these are additionally super. A pack I opened last year last around 6months. And it still fans today. And such. This bee is strong. And surprising durable.

Very easy. Maybe I’m just overall biased towards being favorable. But there’s nothing wrong here. Cards seem to be cut well on all sides.

Available in Red and Blue. They’ve been referred to as ….watermelons? Because the yellow whatever look like seeds..? I don’t know…they look like some butterfly like pattern to me. But still quite … whats the word…refreshing? Like,, a back that’s white bordered, isn’t just one color, or shades of black and white. Well, its just red/ blue + black + yellow. But still made of so much awesome. Also correctly looks good in fans and spreads.

Assuming you can pull off consistently good giant fans(not it)

-This deck might be what is referred to as ‘exclusive’ Unless you’re a heavy smoker of camel branded cigarettes in 2007, you’ll have to find other ways to acquire this deck. Might I suggest Ebay. Over the last year of tracking this deck , they’ve sold anywhere between 2 $ to 15 $ a deck. I sold some of mine off at that upper limit….yea…just the blues ones. Since I don’t like blue decks. I mean…I like red more…but tahts besides the point. Which is. They pop up on eBay a lot. So. it’s a BEE branded deck. With white borders. That alone is awesome + points right there. The box design is also quite subtle. Only words are on the bottom of the box. I wish all my other decks had boxes like these…

–Kudos ♪♫

Absolut Deck

Its Monday, post earlier, since I’m gone during the evening. I find that the average post takes me about half an hour. Not bad for a time commitment of sorts.

At the time of this post, Ebay is your only bet. Average cost of these decks is usually sitting in the 10$ range. I was able to get 5$ a deck on ebay…but that’s just me. They used to be cheaper. Supposedly. They probably won’t stay cheap though. Production stopped a few years back and such.

-The Court Cards; they be holding drinks. Difference betweens suits is the pips on their outfits. The Joker’s all out. AoS Is a little on the bold side. Ad Card is a nice addition for ad/collectible purposes.

Absolut : Pips have drink recipes on them.

The finish. Its PLASTIC. Plastic means it basically lasts forever. Unless you’re willingly crimping them. Don’t do it. After a month of use, dropping it on a table, the deck still lands full flat. No odd bends to them. Pretty good if you want to have something to use forever. Pretty bad if you want to do fans and spreads. Pretty good if you want to do cuts and XCM. Pretty bad if you want a non plastic deck. On a side note, the box is kinda unstable. Like the lid. Don’t do box flips. The cards come flying out.

They’re PLASTIC. Plastic is bad.

Blue and silver in a white border. Vodka bottle in the middle. Uhm. That vodka bottle in the middle makes it one way. So do all the clubs and spades running north to south. But that’s not why you’re using them of course. Pretty. I told my friends there were hearts on the back
They didn’t see them behind the vodka bottle. .. .. .. Still. Kudos to Absolut for a good advertising product.

Plastics cards are super thin. In addition they ‘stick’ to each other. Doubles don’t get any easier then this. Well, at least the center double I use.

-Absolut Vodka. I wouldn’t drink these cards, since… I don’t drink. But they have drink recpies on them. 10 of them. Repeated on all four suits. Not that you would use this deck for drinking games or anything. Plasticky. Good for XCM, unless you count fans and spreads as XCM. Rarara…uhhh I personally like them. I don’t need more though since they last.
