Bicycle Old Parchment is an ode to the days before the printing press. It is a classic look that will forever be inscribed in history. The yellowed brittle paper has been the template in which many historic writings have been produced. The most famous being the Declaration of Independence. This one of a kind deck is one for the ages so be sure to get yours today for your collection. Designed by Collectable Playing Cards and printed by USPCC.

  • Printed by USPCC
  • Bicycle branded
  • 100% hand drawn artwork
  • Custom pips
  • Custom seal
  • Air-cushion finish

The back design is reminiscent of an old map design and portrays the dusty burn marks outlining the entire card.

The face cards are standard with a sandy look to them. The burn marks also line the card.

The numbered cards have very interesting pip designs. Similar to the back cards they are mazed patterns similar to designs of the olden days.

The jokers are almost puppet like figures dressed in warm oranges and yellows to compliment the style of the paper.

2016 Release.

Mystique!

These cards have an old discolored paper look, that goes from lighter in the centers to darker at the edges on both the fronts and backs of the cards to give the look of aged, discolored, and even slightly burnt parchment (hence the name). The symmetrical backs contain a nice border within a border, with scrollwork inside of a circle at the center, almost representing somewhat of a Celtic look. The entire deck (two thru ten included) is completely custom, as the fonts and the pips are styled specifically to match the theme of the deck. There's a nice block border that "starts and stops" (that is to say, is broken) at each corner pip, so that the corner pips are not disturbed by the border. All aces have a rather large center pip adorned in the center with nice scrollwork. The deck also contains a double backer and two full sized jokers. The jokers are identical, save for the fact that on the staff of one joker is a jester head similar to the head of the jester holding the staff, but on the other joker the staff is headed with the horned skull of some sort of animal. This almost has a "Ninth Gate" type of feel (for those that have seen the movie) and makes you feel as if there is some hidden, sinister quality about the deck. Fantastic job all the way around in invoking such feelings, this is a fine deck indeed!
