I had a feeling that wouldnt stop nagging me that i needed to go ahead and checkout with just the LE deck. Thankfully i did. Disappointed about the double shipping but at least i got all the decks.

I just found the listing below on playingcards.net and was wonder about the deck. They would have to be V1 because V2 hasn't shipped. I was a bit confused because the don't mention the printing error and it's not a pre-order. Thoughts?

More than likely it's probably the Moriarty V1.

I'm not privy to the business side of things, but I know there's a few companies that have bought Jackson's stuff in larger quality for re-sell. Have you emailed Gambler's Warehouse? Probably your best bet for a straight answer regarding which version it is.

Any update on the King's Wild Signature Series? The last post Jackson made was a showing of 4 possible back designs (A1, A2, B1, B2).

It's one of the many projects in the works at the moment. No ETA on it though.

Why do the Reserve Notes decks differ from the others in the Fed 52 series and not use the traditional court card style busts? I so very much prefer the Reserve Note style where the entire portrait is what the historic figure would have actually worn vs wearing traditional court attire (clothing) For the Sherlock sets the traditional style was avoided, but the Independence went back to it. Just curious on the thought process behind it and hoping most of your future decks will fit the person. For the record Reserve Note is one of my favorite decks by far and DEFINITELY my favorite non-transformation deck. :D

Also, am I alone on preferring this or is there a large crowd that prefers all court cards to have traditional court card style busts?

Unless I am misunderstanding you, I believe the independence decks have period/person accurate attire:

Like you, I do prefer court cards to have this as opposed to the traditional court card style busts. :) Maybe if George Washington in the 2nd Edition of Fed 52 was wearing person/period accurate attire as opposed to the traditional court card style bust, then it would look less like the head was photo-shopped on to the body, as sinjin had expressed in the Fed 52 2nd Edition thread.

What if for the Fed 52 2nd edition I replace the original court set with the Reserve Note Court set. Also changing the color scheme to a more green direction. The Reserve Note Courts are my personal favorite as well.

Yes, I should read what I write before posting. I'm assuming I meant the Fed 52 II were split. Plus now proposed new set flirted with it again. The independence set lost the spark that reserve note had so maybe I had that in my head too.

I agree with the 'pasted' look comment, exactly why it doesn't appeal as much to me. Still nice, but loses quite a bit.

Now you are talking! Except then I would have to buy another uncut and my wall space is already getting low. :-(

Nah, I'll make it work. ;-) looking forward to what you come up with.

Personally I like the period accurate attire. Traditional court attire doesn't appeal to me in this usage. As stated by somebody else you get a photoshop cut and paste effect if it's not done right. For the Silver Certificate edition the effect is pulled off right. For the George Washington in the teaser of Fed 52 series 2 the effect doesn't come off as well as it should.

VERY nice! It kind of has a retro/modern, almost art deco revival look that I love and keep looking for a fully themed deck of that style. Based on that back alone it's a win. Great job!
