Radical 80’s Bicycle deck. Playing cards in a cassette tape



Imagine… Michael Jackson playing PacMan, Madonna trying to solve the Rubik’s cube, E.T. watching Mazinger-Z at TV and Rocky Balboa connecting his Nintendo. All would have played poker together if they would have discovered this amazing deck: Bicycle Radical 80’s.

Ari Steffen, a Californian photographer and his wife Anna (with the invaluable moral support of their dogs Wylie and Cassie and their cat Thomas) have made the classic Bicycle deck up and transformed it into an explosion of neon colors and flavor to the 80s where the hairdos, outfits and popular inventions of the decade are depicted.

When funding, 2,500 decks will be printed by the USPCC in Bicycle card stock. They have also designed a limited number of cassette style tuck boxes as a collector item, apart from other merchandising objects.

Furthermore, they have released a cool rock stickers to customize the tuck box.

You can visit the project website for more info and raise your pledge.

Good luck!
