“Jack McCall shot and killed Wild Bill Hickok over these cards!”
I saw it happen, call me a liar and your next. It was such a problem (people getting shot over cards) that bartenders and lawmen alike were burying and hiding these exact cards from everyone. While panning for gold in Utah, I came across an old wooden box that had the legendary cards in it! Unfortunately, as soon as I opened the box the cards had started falling apart in my hands due to decay and rotting. Luckily, I have perfectly redesigned them from scratch and the good people at Bicycle have agreed to reprint them on casino grade paper! Yee-haw!” – Russell Kercheval, Americana Deck Designer
This deck is more than just a retooling of regular cards!
Custom Face Cards – Kings are now sheriff lawmen, Queens are serving beer at the saloons, and Jacks have become outlaw bandits!
Period Accurate Back – After studying old decks, photos, and a bit of inspiration Russell has come up with a classy and faithful back. The final design is a TWO WAY back with edges that fade to ‘white’.
Gaff Cards – Shot-through Ace of Hearts and blood splater 4 of Spades
Weathered Look – Not just satisfied with adding a filter to existing cards, Russell went all out! Cracks, tears, faded colors, and stains make it look like you found this deck buried in a mineshaft.
