This Jules Verne deck by Grimaud came today. Really cool one, 100 % custom.

I really like it, the Aces are great and it even has custom pips. Quite nice one IMO! Picked this one up from Naipeszaca.com.

Unexpected knock at the door: FedEx with my customized Love is a Smoke (#8 of 20) cigar box, San Cristobal with a gadsden (revolutionary war) flag coiled "Don't Tread On Me" tattoo

As usual, probably sideways because my phone ignores the 90° rotation setting... Double click and it (usually) displays correctly.

Got my custom box in today as well, but unfortunately the hinge broke during transit.

Careful with the Gadsden symbol now, liberal pussies are pushing their way on that now too.


Wearing ‘Don’t Tread on Me’ insignia could be punishable racial harassment

I received my UUSI Brüt Tarot copper gilded deck and display box today. No pics yet but holy crap is the box nice. Being a woodworker myself I can appreciate the thought that went into the designing, construction and finish of the box. Well worth it IMO. Anyone that is contemplating issuing a display box with their decks should draw inspiration from Peter & Linnea

BTW - I got number 1 of 10 too. Freaking stoked about that. :D

Even though I cut back recently, I got a few in during the past month or so. Newest includes the elusive Mana Sybil Livida and the Deviant Moon Tarot

Nah, I've cut back a lot lately and really I rarely like black backgrounds on cards so the gold on blue I just wasn't feeling it. Nice otherwise though.

NOC branding is a bit strange lately.

Last NOC by the Blue Crown was the Signature Series III (Laura London deck)
Since then nothing new from the Blue Crown.

But Murphy's Magic did a Gaff Deck for Black NOC.
Bit later the Dapper NOC by Vanishing Inc.
And now NOC Summer Blue/Orange by ?????

Just wondering what happend to the Blue Crown.....

I know how to go "radio silent", huh?

Working my way out of the hole I dug - appears on my doorstep today:

Lotrek's ICONS series decks, shown here without the "demo" and "trial" versions, and with yours truly gracing the King of Spades (from top left, Signature, inverted Imperial, original Imperial and Sacred editions)

This is a reprint of a French deck from 1860.

Image

This deck is about the same size as a mini size deck. 4 custom aces, no indexies and each court is different.

Image

Image

Image

This next one is a lot cooler. It is a transformation style deck and a reprint of a German deck from 1806. Each card is different and they look awesome. The courts have people from anticent Greece and Rome in them. These are not poker size, but wider and taller.

I do have one of each unopened, which I'll be giving away at the UC decks of the year 2016 awards with some other stuff.

I ordered it from Naipeszaca.com which is a store in Spain and on their site the name is:
BARAJA DE TRANSFORMACION ALEMANA

Looks like they still have 6 of them for sale, I do recommend this deck, it looks very cool. If you like it then go for it :D
