Great Job, Lotrek, Mike and Cartamundi! Those look amazing!
Can’t wait to get them in my hands!
It had been a dream of mine for years to be able to recreate these awesome decks that essentially were never available for sale. Like a couple of the USPCC special edition decks, the original edition of 1933 was only given out to customers by B Dondorf company at their Centennial Jubilee dinner in early 1933.
I finally found the right door to knock on when a friend in Europe pointed me to the A. S. S. company in Altenburg Germany and noted that they still owned the rights to reproduce them, even though technically Cartamundi owns them now, and at this point they own several other companies like the French company (B P) Grimaud.
I hope to be able to follow up with another truly rare, beautiful deck from the 1880's. We'll see! My advocates at Cartamundi HQ in Turnhout and at Altenburg und Stralsunder Spielkartenfabrik GmBH in Germany are good, proven enthusiasts.
