The "White Whale" Wish List

Unread postby Sharpie » Tue Nov 05, 2013 6:11 pm  

A White Whale - http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=white+whale

I thought it might be cool for everyone to post that one deck of cards they just can't seem to find.
...that one deck that consumes their dreams, and every waking moment. :shock: (or not quite that) :roll:

You might be surprised what's sitting in a closet somewhere.
By letting the community know what you've been searching for, dreams could come true! 8-)

We all understand this can change over time.
But until you find what you're after or lose interest, let's keep it to one White Whale per member.
It is a singular term. ;)

My current quest, is for:
Burton Snowboards - Bicycle Deck
The Doctor Who - Gallifrey One Deck

Your turn. Aaaand...GO! :D

For me it is the Salvador Dali deck.
I actually prefer the 1969 2nd edition to the 1967 1st.

The wood case with the second is a nice display.

But at the prices this deck goes for on Ebay it will remain only on my wishlist and not in my collection

(Sorry no pivtures)

DMC Sharks have eluded me for some time now. Seems like I should have some grander deck to complain about not having but per Sharpie's description this is the deck I just can't seem to get my hands on.

Nice thread Sharpie, good idea. I was checking out that all saints deck ego put up. That is quite wild.
I have been seeking that independent deck in the political series but haven't caught it yet. I must state THANKS to Svinger and Sharpie and Hikabee I was able to obtain most of the big decks I sought. A big shout out to you my brothers.

Not really up in the "White Whale" category, but the one I'd most like to trip across would be the Boss Deck.

Mine would be the original v2 Smoke&Mirrors Decks. But they're just too expensive :(

This is one of two decks I'm looking for. This is my Huckleberry. I'm bidding on it. This is what caused me to make the Texas deck. It usually goes for $450.

Don't you bastards up the price or I'll kill you....

I want a Boss deck too. My main one would be what CBJ has, the Bicycle Intel/Android deck.

Oh man that reminds me: an original Escape Map Deck.

Can something that's impossible be considered a white whale?
