Angel Back Squeezers Playing Cards
Available as a 2 deck set and individually
The CLASSIC Angel Back Squeezer deck was introduced in the late 1800s by New York Consolidated Card Co. and was a staple deck for decades. It was re-created by U.S. Playing Card artists, who reproduced the artwork using an original Angel Back.
Note especially the court cards. The detailing and color are superior in many ways to the current courts used for Bicycle and Bee decks. And there are subtle differences: the kings', queens' and jacks' faces are slightly larger than current cards, the numbers are slightly thinner, the suit signs are a tiny bit larger and the jack of diamonds has a mustache.
Also check out the very cool, original design jokers.
Please note: because of the coating used on these cards, they do not have a lot of "slip" and might not be suitable for cardistry. They are fine for other uses.
The deck also includes one blank-face card and one card with a brief history of the Angel Back.
