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.

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.

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.

When you pull out these cards from the box, the stunning design captures your eye, the closer you look, the more detail you can see on the dragon back. For magicians this is key to fix your audience onto the cards and let the magic amaze them.
This deck is sure to become a real collectors deck. These cards are printed on the reliable bicycle stock, so you know they will handle well and with my usage the cards flow smooth and handle as expected.
The red pips are darker than standard Bike Cards and the court cards are in green, gold & red giving a muted, antique appearance. In the pictures you can see the dragon back on the top and the standard bicycle cards on the bottom as well as a close up of the dragon design.
What else is included? The Dragon Back Deck also includes one double backed card (extremely useful for beginner magicians, one coloured Joker, one standard Guarantee Joker.

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.

The Bicycle Vintage Dragon Back Deck is a nice change to the average boring deck of cards. We bought this for traveling/plane and for holiday. We had a lot of fun playing different games with them over the few weeks!

Bought those cards for magic tricks.
I really love them. The stock and finish are amazing. They fan well and feel really nice. People always say they look amazing.
Unexpectedly, while riffling through the deck, I discovered the deck was a one side deck(this is not a marked deck !) (it might be just a factory second, though). It is really subtle and no one can ever tell. It can help in certain magic tricks as well :).
