Are you still going to post photos when it's finished?



Hey, my friend bailed on me... so I'm considering tackling the job.
I may put the standard AOS spade pip on the box, and of course I'll post pics when it's done!

I try to update whenever I see a new Bicycle deck come out... but sometimes I fall behind.

I normally buy only 1 of each deck, but obviously that's not always the case (look at all my extras!!!)
I rarely open decks.

I think Joe is taking about the blacked out parts in the spreadsheet you showed us.

That's an easy answer... they're Bicycle decks :)

Yeah, If you go back and look at that list I showed.. there are a couple of dozen "in the marketplace" decks that I don't have(23 as of this minute to be exact). This of course is modern decks.

I'd love to get one of each of the vintage decks.. which is over 100 different decks. I'll most likely never get any, they go for too much money.
But, if I ever did win the lotto... It's very high on the list.

I guess I can post some more stuff while we wait for Sharpie...



Arcane Printing plates


Image




Acrylic stands that I bought from China... these are very very cheap plastic.


Image

Image




Some poker stuff from the man cave...


Image

Image

Image

Image

Image




Some decals...


Image

Image




The certificate that came with my private collection Seasons set. I wish he wouldn't have hand written the number


Image


Image


Image






Do you guys want to see more stuff?? Or should I just wait for Sharpie to start?

It's been pushed back until the start of next month, possibly putting the one next in line if Sharpie's still occupied. So the floor is yours for at least another week :)

Those are really cool! How did you get those printing plates? Also, did you print the labels on the Acrylic stands, or were you given the option to have something printed as a label and they did the printing for you? The seasons certificate looks really nice, but yeah I agree it would have been better if the number wasn't hand written.

Thanks for sharing :) I'd love to see more stuff!

I picked up the printing plates off of Jason Brumbalow when he had a massive sale...

Unfortunately, during shipping they got bent... bad.

Jason really should have packed them better, but nothing could be done... they were not salvageable.
So, I decided to have a friend cut them into individual plates and I would sell them.
I had shipped all of them to BMPoker to sell on his site, and in exchange i would monitor his FB page. (even though Mike sold BMPoker, you can still see the tab for the plates: http://www.bmpokerworld.com/printing_plates.php)
I sold about half of the plates through BMPoker, and then after about 2 months of zero plates being sold.. I asked Mike to send the rest back to me.
I'm glad I did, because about a month later he went off the rails and went on a banning spree.


As for the little deck stands, they came with the printing on them.


I'll try to dig up some more stuff to post about :)

Hey, it's been a very long time since I bought them... so no.

But, I sent one of these to Gambler's Warehouse last week. They are going to try to fabricate a better version.

I'll keep you posted

Love the plates - and the story behind it!

Will certainly be looking out for the deck stands - finding a good source of inexpensive small stands is tricky!
