Drifters Playing Cards USPCC
For the ramblers. For the gamblers. For the drifters: The hand that life deals us can never be predicted.
Every shuffle and cut of the cards is a reminder to never settle, to chase a life of freedom. The wilderness holds the answers, like the cards held in your hands. These themes are reflected throughout this amazing deck. For those who seek adventure upon the horizon, be sure to pack a deck of Drifters.
Featuring a custom, letter-pressed tuck case and beautifully illustrated faces, Drifters was designed by Curtis Jenkins, illustrator of Monarchs playing cards, in collaboration with Dan and Dave. Proudly printed to the highest possible standards by the U.S. Playing Card Company.
This is a great deck if you can get your hands on it. One of the better Dan & Dave sets out there.
This was actually my first Dan and Dave designed deck and I could not have been happier with it. The back design looks great both by itself and during card flourishes. The face cards are well designed with a wild west feeling that matches with the deck. To top it all off, the tuck case is also very intricate.
I love the decks produced by Art of Play and Dan & Dave, and this one is no exception. Some of their decks are ideal for cardistry and are very customized, whereas others are more standard and have a classy look, making them ideal for card magic and card games. The Drifters deck falls into this latter category. The handling is excellent since it is USPCC produced, and the tuck box and customization of the cards is just enough to make them stylish and interesting.
One of my favorite decks of all time. This deck is proof positive that you don't have to have an elaborate, ornate, over the top design to score five stars. The blue box and red seal is a beautiful start. The symmetrical back designs with the flowers at the corners, arrows thru skulls, and an "infinity" figure eight snake design sparks a feeling of wanderlust, and makes me wish I was hiking in Joshua Tree again. My imagination makes me think that this is the deck that is on a table in the house of Bruce Springsteen's character in the song "Dry Lightning". There are two full sized and identical jokers featuring the horse and rider looking off into the night sky. There is a beautiful ace of spades (that almost won me over all by itself), adorned with six shooter pistols, crossed keys, and a skull. The two thru ten cards have a plain white background (as do all other cards) but have custom fonts and pip styles. The center pips on the other aces, while not quite as well adorned as the spade, are very nicely done as well. The court cards are custom wild west style characters, but it's nice that you can still see a glimmer here and there of the standard court card facial features, allowing you to see how the standard court was transformed into what we have here. This deck is simplicity at its finest, giving just enough to wow you, but without any unnecessary designs to confuse you or clutter the cards. The artist almost made this look too easy. Five stars well earned!
This deck is BADA$$!!
One of the coolest decks I've gotten my hands on. Court cards and pips are classy and clean yet the artwork and tuck box are nothing but ordinary.
You won't be disappointed!
