The only trademark would be for the name, Jerry's Nugget, and that would be owned by Jerry's Nugget Casino, not USPCC. The USPCC would likely have a copyright for the image of that Ace of Spades, which I believe was used on come other decks as well other than JNs. If he got permission or a license from the USPCC then he's obviously doesn't have to worry about anything. If he didn't, then the issue is going to be if this ever comes to the attention of the USPCC, and if they decide to do anything about it even if it does come to their attention.
The thing that interests me more is the printing factory he's using. Since its a printer located in Taiwan, I assumed its the same one that EPCC and LPCC uses. But in the comments section of his KS page, Hansom says he's actually not even familiar with any EPCC/LPCC decks and that his printing factory is different from the one used by EPCC/LPCC.
