Tally-Ho is the luxury brand of playing cards by USPCC (The United States Playing Card Company). It's the deck of choice for cardists, flourishers, players, and magicians alike. These Tally-Ho playing cards are in the long line of cards that started printing in 1885. This is the latest iteration of Tally-Ho cards, of which there are few. This is the British Monarchy Tally-Ho deck, and you can get it now.
The art is all original and historically accurate, based upon famous British Monarchy from centuries past. To stay in tradition with the elegant Tally-Ho brand, the card back is extravagantly detailed. USPCC approved the art for this deck, and we've been excited to bring it to you ever since. Each King and Queen has been meticulously researched and elaborately portrayed. The card back is ornate in its design, while keeping with the theme of the deck. The back illustrates the Crown, and alludes to the War of the Roses in England. The portraits themselves of the royalty cards are intricate, while keeping the cards playable.

About the Artist
Immensely talented artist Nam Tibon is based out of Manila, Philippines, and has been painting since he can remember. He is a Fine Arts graduate of the University of the Philippines, and he won the Golden Laurel Award for the painting competition of the International Delphic Games. His work has also been published at Graphika Manila's art book. He is the co-founder and artist of an indie graphic company, Circus Science, and an artists' collective, Happy Sapiens. At only 25 years old, his work has already been shown in art galleries internationally, and I'm very thrilled that his work can be showcased here.
The History of Tally-Ho playing cards:
Andrew Dougherty was perhaps the greatest innovator in playing card history. He produced some of America's first playing cards, and introduced the first Tally-Ho cards. Among other innovations, he helped bring indices onto playing cards, brought Jokers into mainstream card decks, and also produced cards with rounded corners instead of square corners.
We wanted to ensure that this Tally-Ho British Monarchy deck is original, yet stays true to Tally-Ho themes of the past, namely the fan backs and circle backs. The Crown as the central feature on the back of this British Monarchy deck corresponds to the central figures found on both Tally-Ho fan backs and circle backs. The roses here also allude to the flowers found there as well. In addition, we added a crossing feature on the ends of the British Monarchy cards, most notably found on the circle backs. With rich flourishes to the British Monarchy card back, everything pays tribute to previous Tally-Ho decks.
Made in the USA.
Brand New, Factory Sealed.

British Monarchy Tally-Ho Playing Cards Deck printed at USPCC is a great deck to add to any collection with a very interesting unique court design.
This deck has a slick raised finish. Really nice color combo on the back design too. Glad to add them.
The British Monarchy Tally-Ho Playing Card Deck comes in a raised texture finish, black and gold tuck box giving it a more high end look and feel. Each Court/Royalty card features monarchy from the long and distinguished history of Britain.
Produced by LUX Playing Cards in 2015, the tuck box features elements drawn from the traditional Tally-Ho design, but with sharp looking black and gold colours, and an embossed/textured finish. There's an ornate back design on the cards, giving it a distinguished look, which illustrates the Crown, and alludes to the War of the Roses. Many elements of this design pay deliberate tribute to traditional Tally-Ho fan backs and circle backs.
The court cards feature original and historically accurate artwork with portraits depicting historical figures from the distinguished British Monarchy across the centuries, and each King and Queen was meticulously researched and elaborately portrayed. A list of all the names of those appearing on the court cards is included on an extra card in the deck.
