Do you know where to look? So when these were introduced, prices were a little…on the high side. Yea. Well now, you should land these around 3$ a deck. Cheaper if you buy in bulk. I won’t say where though,,,since I still need to buy some more.

Wynn : New Box Spread

Okay lets see here…It says Bee’s Diamond Back Club Special. With Cambric Finish. But why are Wynns special. Because because…it’s a solid paint back design. Single color casino logo. But. I would have to say/agree that this is not the same as all other Bees. Its got a more…slick/waxy/crisp feel to it rather than typical say…stocky. Nonetheless it is durable. But the finish is still odd. No super perfect fans new from box. Also, it eats sweat and clumps quickly too. But this makes spreads a little better. See pictures below for an idea.

Hit or miss. The one deck I opened today faros well….faceup. Back up. Not so much. Difficult. More difficult than those black 808 bikes I had. Ew.

Awesome. Solid. Cinnamon/crimson red. Like the casino red. Not bright red. Well. Only because I care about the reds only. Blue/violet..whatever…heh.

Diagonal card insertion: Good. Check.
Culling portion of the move. Not so good. Moves additional cards in the spread due to the finish. Scary. Not entirely avoidable. Darn.

-So. Wynn casino. I was holding off on posting on these for awhile. Until I got some jumbo indexes. Because I hear they’re different. As for brown wynns. I sold most of mine off on eBay. They’re okay. Probably get into those tomorrow. Wynn. It’s Bee stock. Good old bee. I’m heavily leaning towards using Bee decks for whatever magic I may or may not be doing in the upcoming year(school year). Maybe I should focus on academics. Haha. Shrugs. Good deck. Be aware that shelf life is considerably shorter if you’re focusing on cleanliness. Though its more durable than say a bicycle deck, bicycle is much more expendable. Wynn seems to be the type of card you’d use for say,,,a more reserved setting perhaps. Or for XCM and cardistry and that stuff. Yea can’t forget about that. The clumping factor of these cards will boost that quite well. I’d go for DnD’s vertigo hackysack with these. Fun . Stuff .

A little more available I guess due to being more unknown than say….Bee casino cards. But still unavailable for mass purchases nonetheless.

Hoyle PGC : Aces of Spades
Hoyle PGC : Aces of Spades Fine Print

The boxes both say Nevada finish. Its actually quite distinguishable from other cards. What to compare it to… a more notable plastic coat,,,but not as much as uhmm,,, hmm. .. Maybe think arrco regulations if they were stiffer and didn’t fan as well. Or… aladdins(need to stop referencing things I haven’t covered yet) if it wasn’t all smooth. But lighter. Personally, theres some difference between the two decks, but that’s probably more due to age, condition, back paint, etc…than actual stock. I mean…the boxes are different, but I’m not too sure about the stock. Maybe they moved somewhere. The aceofspades seems to indicate some new management or something. Shrugs. Uhm. Very durable cards when new from box. More slip than a usual casino deck. Feels…thinner than a bicycle deck, but a little stronger.

The old box…like Bourbon street has full bleed white and logo like yesterday’s Sam’s town . Plain and easy. The next generation has a full bleed checker square like background :/ and logos. Ugly. Kinda like bee diamond back with logos. Undesirable. Well. Pick and choose.

Hot Shot Cut: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○
Yay for hot shot cut. Only thing that stood out when I was tossing these around while wondering what to take photos of. Haha. Snappy. And since they’re light, they ’float’ for more air time. Air time. That hovering effect you get when you angle it with enough spin. Pretty.

-So today, I just picked out two decks. For fun. From my random Ebay sleuthing. Yea I know. Boring stuff. So now you can choose between (among) Gemaco, Bee, and Hoyle for your old casino cards. Fun.  Had to revive the older one with fanning powder. Face cards have the hoyle court cards. Both have typical ‘casino’ red. Cards typically stay crisp. Even after all this time. Boxes are….boring.  Old has full box, newer had plastic window. Good decks to carry around and use, because, they’re not worth much for anything else?
