The highest price paid for a deck of cards is $143,352 purchased by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City at Sotheby's in London, on December 6, 1983. The cards, circa 1470-85, are believed to be the oldest known complete hand-painted deck.

Yeah, but I bet they don't fan well.

But can do a tear and restore, and write on them?

It's a neat deck. You can see what they look like right here, as well as read an in-depth article about them in a special issue of CARD CULTURE.

Enjoy!

And I thought regular decks cost too much for the decreasing quality...

That's why I love facsimile decks. You can 'get the feel' without shelling out $s. Or even $$$$$$$s.

Has anyone got to see them in person? They look interesting but that is a very high price tag.
