So I got these decks from Spain today:

First one is an Italian custom deck. Apperantly it is designed by a guy named Timmel:

The second one is... Egyptian...? It does say Cairo - Egypt on the front. It is also wrapped in paper and not in a tuck box.

Image

And this is the part where Jock/Jase rides here and tells me everything he knows about these :D Thanks in advance. Oh and I also have 1 of each unopened.

I got mine from Naipeszaca.com. They do have international shipping, although it is a bit pricey, even within Europe. But I think that the deck was like 4,40 € so you might want to try to check if a 1 or 2 deck order would stay within reason.

"Giochi di corte" means "Court games" this deck was printed in 1991 by Cambissa of Italy, Timmel was actually an artist named Vito Thummel (1886-1949)
A very nice deck, i think i`ll get myself one...thanks for showing :D
The Cosmos deck had me flumuxed for a while.
Carvelli Freres of Cairo is actually a Tobacconist firm. They had Playing cards made for them by De La Rue of England in 1935-1939 hence the Goodall court cards. From the 1940`s onwards the local firm Amirayan simply copied these cards in order to produce cheaper cards. i see Naipeszaca.com has them listed as 1950`s which is about right for a later printing by Amirayan.
Hope this helps :D -jase-

Hey Raply,

Can you edit your posts so we know which cards are from what deck please? You're going to bankrupt me with all those great decks at that site you provided.

Thanks. :)
Move on, nothing to see here.

Cross posted from the UC2017 Fifth Annual Decks project Avant-garde - I got a pair of each deck early, Dave Edgerly just got them from the Austin inland port Wednesday. They should be shipping fulfillment starting next week.

The tucks (all foil, no ink), Jokers and a sample suit of courts from both the UC green Dec will the Royal House courts and the blue version with Edgy Brothers standard courts.

Been a while since I posted to this thread. A few decks from the thrift store.

Thriftfinds_early2017_small.jpg


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. :ugdance:

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.

I just came across this yesterday at a local thrift shop and thought it was a find worth sharing. A casino deck with nice custom courts and more. It's a Gemaco deck with cut corners for the Sky Dancer Casino in North Dakota which I had never heard of before, but looks pretty neat, glad I found it. :D
