Revisiting traditional casino cards, especially those full of history (Jerry’s Nuggets, Golden Nuggets, Caesar Palace, …) has become very popular. That vintage touch of Las Vegas casino cards is appealing to many fans and stimulates the nostalgia of others.
Inspired by Hong Kong’s gambling films from the 90s, Silver Sackbut shows reminiscences of Las Vegas casino cards in the ’50s bringing memories of well-known decks like the Silver Slipper ones.
With the use of the traditional designs for the faces, only the ace of spades and the jokers have been customized, as well as the back and the tuck case, all decorated with the stylized silhouette of a sackbut, a wind instrument of the Renaissance and Baroque eras predecessor of the modern Trombone.
There will be two versions in red and black, the most elegant colors. Furthermore, the deck will include two extra gaff cards: double back and blank face. A nice stamp seal will reinforce the vintage aspect of the decks.
As a deck designed for magic and manipulation, the best qualities and finishes have been chosen. Printed by the USPCC, it will be used Bee paper with Q1 quality, the maximum available, as long as air-cushion finish. A limited edition of 2500 of each color will be printed.
If you like quality cards, with standard faces and a vintage casino twist, do not hesitate to visit the project website and raise your pledge.
