Product Description

Rumour has it that this stunning design was found by an employee of the United States Playing Card Company when searching through old artwork. It is thought that this design could be very old but has never been in production. This deck is sure to become a real collectors deck. Although the Dragon Back Deck is printed on Bicycle Stock and has standard faces the colouring is anything but standard. The red pips are darker than standard Bike Cards and the court cards are in green, gold & red giving a muted, antique appearance. The back design is very appealing, again in muted colours and it incorporates a one way design feature especially useful for magicians. The Dragon Back Deck also includes one double backed card, one coloured Joker, one standard Guarantee Joker and an advertising card for the other USPCC Brands.

There's something about these cards that really give off an aura of magic. I perform mainly in the street at night, around the clubs, so tricks need to be hard hitting, basic, and not too flashy. The secret to these is that, their presentation in the box is not too elaborate, all the magic comes from the moment you pull them out. The dark reds, copper greens and gold accents breathe life into these cards, but the suits are still the same design everyone knows, just with the alteration of added colour to the robes of the court cards. The more I look at them the more they want me to use them, and here was me thinking I was the one casting spells.

These cards are fantastic,they look and feel great.I really like the red pips as they are a dark red and give the deck a classy look.They come with a double backer which is handy for tricks and I've noticed a very subtle one way up marking to the cards.They are probably my favourite cards.

Right out the box these *feel* special, they have a classy kind of finish that is the right side of stylish. The design is casino oriented. They handle superbly, if anything when brand-out-of-box-new they're so slick I found some moves easier to do, and others slightly trickier; hopefully they settle into a middle ground when worn in. They arrived bang on time, and they appear extremely durable.
They come with a gaff card that I immediately put to good use, devising a couple of unusual tricks to use it, both of which worked to great affect. I have rated these higher than the Guardian deck, based purely on the very solid, durable feel of each card.

In summary, worth every penny, especially if you play poker with friends and fancy a 'vegas' deck.

My son is a budding magician and he just loves every one of these Bicycle Playing card packs. To the uninitiated they just seem like another pack of cards but he says the finish means they glide through his hands as he performs his latest tricks. All his magician friends have them.
It is my son's aim to collect as many as he can.

The Bicycle Vintage "Dragon Back" Deck is a really smart looking pack.
The Court cards have a great look with a toned metallic green which looks- well regal.
Of course the big attraction is the card backs which it is reputed is an old design filed and forgotten for years then rediscovered by a worker at Bicycle.
They liked the design and chose to release it to the public.

This is an attractive and impressive deck for magicians the sheen looks really professional.
Certainly when I use it for tricks it really gets the trick off to a good start if you have a great looking deck like this.
The red dragons give and Oriental air of mystery so to speak.

There is an additional 'Gaff' card.
It's double backed so nothing to write home about but an extra which is always welcome.
The back includes a couple of 'Trade' cards which are always useful if you need to make your own Gaffs.

In actions the cards perform well.
They fan out and are easily manipulated as are all Bicycle brands. The airflow ensures the slide easily.
I used to used 'Bee' brand for many years. Bee are a subsidiary of Bicycle but I must admit I prefer to use Bicycle.

A really smart looking deck that performs well.
The cards are also available in Blue.

Bought these for my boyfriend on a whim because the design on the back is gorgeous. He loved them and I agree with him, they're very nice to use as they're smooth and glide nicely when playing fast paced card games. Definitely a good quality brand.

These cards are great!! I use them for card magic and they are fantastic to use. The design on the back is excellent with all the dark reds and greens which really draws peoples attention to them and also the picture cards have a really nice colour scheme too. The only problem with the design is that the ace of spades is the bicycle standard, it would be nice to see some dragon style spade or something ! The cards are quite felxible, I find them more flexible than standard bikes however they are easy to get used to so it is not really a problem unless you have a strong preference to more rigid cards. They seem to last quite well too.

All in all I would reconmend these to anybody who wants a deck of cards with more flare than a standard deck as they don't cost much compaired to other patterend decks and they just look AWESOME !! Im sure I will be buying more !
