Pretty sure these are counterfeit
on 19 March 2014
I ordered three sets. When they arrived they were shinier and not exactly what I would describe as a linen finish. One pack in particular had all the cards misaligned and I wouldn't play with this deck they're so bad. As I needed the third deck I went into Sainsbury's and got an identical set, and that's where I started to see the difference.
The finish from the Sainsbury's pack of Waddingtons cards is less shiny and more defined. And the cards are wrapped inside the pack as it says it should be on the seal of quality that you break to get into the pack. In comparison the cards I received were not wrapped inside, and the seal on the outside isn't curved.
Side by side they look identical, but get inside the box and it's quite easy to tell the difference.
