Been a while since I posted to this thread. A few decks from the thrift store.
The Game of Thrones turned out to be a disappointing standard deck with G of T backs.
The one in the center is a vintage Club Reno Pinochle set from Arrco, with "Ripple" finish and Fortuna Bona Ace of Spades.
The colourful thick deck is from the movie Cars. I wouldn't have been interested except it's lenticular.
The one on the far right was a surprise. I don't normally go for birds and flowers backs, but the courts and pips were an interesting custom design. They're from Punch Studio.
The Giraffes are a nice old 'made in China' deck with vintage graphics for the ace and jokers.
The Check-Mate decks are from 1989 and officially endorsed by FIDE World Chess Federation. They have 52 different end-games on the faces (not the backs like the box says).
Africa Match is a deck featuring a hand carved relief print face on each card, made by emerging artists.
Last, and a current fave (I'm a sucker for glow in the dark) is the Night Glow deck. It has a retro 1970s look, with it's amber box and tree back, but is probably a modern Umbra deck. I love this box and card back.
The faces are typical Umbra minimalism and they do glow.
