BICYCLE SISTINA Playing Cards. One thousand copies of the masterpiece

Michelangelo is one of the greatest masters of painting ever. His work will always be eternal and one of his major achievements is to have painted the most beautiful frescoes in the earth in the Sistine Chapel. Collectable Playing Cards now pays tribute to this magnificent work and its artist with a deck that includes Johnny Whaam’s original artwork: BICYCLE SISTINA.

The deck shows in the court cards 12 characters chosen from the various biblical scenes on the ceilings decorated by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. The figures, with symmetrical designs, are flanked by columns that support the custom indexes. An elaborate geometric design is depicted in the back of the cards. All in a tuck case with another original illustration of the mythical God Father with the extended arm and finger.

The deck, Bicycle branded, will be printed by the USPCC in a limited edition of 1,000 units, which is unusual in the famous printing company but that has become a hallmark for CPC.

The deck is almost funded so, if you like it, visit the project website and raise your pledge.

Good luck!

About the Author

I'm Max, a collector and passionate about playing cards. Since 2012 I try to spread this passion to everyone who goes through Max Playing Cards. In my articles I do not just talk about cards, as I try to look for the stories and the human beings behind them.

I would like to complete my collection of Bicycle decks some day, but now I know that is impossible ...
