Bicycle® MARBLE RIDER BACK Playing Cards by Max

The LAST deck in the RIDER BACK TEXTURE SERIES by Max (Max Playing Cards)

Image


ABOUT THIS PROJECT...

Collectable Playing Cards and Max Playing Cards are proud to offer you the new Bicycle® MARBLE Rider Back Deck, the very last of the Rider Back Series.

Image


Image


In 2014 the Texture Series deck was born to offer those playing cards fans the nicest Bicycle® Rider Back decks ever. Now, the Rider Back Texture Series is about to die

Combining the most popular back, used by players, magicians and fans from around the world, and the most beautiful and realistic textures, the original Bicycle® Metal Deck, the Wood Deck and the Blue Metal Deck are already part of the collections of fans from around the planet with more than 15,000 Decks produced and around 2300 Backers in the three campaigns.

The original Red Metal Deck is COMPLETELY SOLD OUT at retailers, available only from some secondary market sellers (for really high prices). The other decks in the series are still available but being limited will be sold out soon.

Although the respect for the Bicycle® brand and the classic Rider Back design has always been extreme, the work along these years has not been easy. It has been necessary sometimes to request specific authorizations to navigate through the restrictive policies by the USPCC in relation to the original design.

However, the new policy of the USPCC is even more restrictive prohibiting from 2018 any type of manipulation or change of the Rider Back design.

The BICYCLE® MARBLE DECK was approved some months ago by the USPCC's legal service (with some slight changes) and we planned to launch the project early next year. However, given the new scenario, we have brought forward the launch of the campaign so that, if funded, the contracts will be signed before the end of the year.

Image


Thus, if we achieve the funding goal, the Bicycle® Marble Rider Back will be the very last Rider Back deck of the Texture Series and probably the last deck printed by the USPCC with changes on the classic back.

This is sad for us but at the same time this deck will be something with a historical meaning.

For all these reasons, and more than ever, we need your support to make this project a reality.

IT IS NOT MARBLE BUT… WHO CARES?

Hundreds of hours have been invested in this design to offer you one of the most amazing Rider Backs in the world. Every detail has been taken care of to make this deck a realistic marble deck made of the best Bicycle paper stock printed by the United States Playing Card Company.

Image


For the design, several different types of real marble textures have been used to create something unique.

Image


The MARBLE DECK is a reinterpretation of the classic Bicycle® RIDER BACK deck using a set of textures to give the cards a real marble aspect.

Max is a collector and a magic enthusiast so the BICYCLE® MARBLE DECK has been designed as a collectable item but thinking of magicians and card routines. For that reason, it has many features that allow magic tricks with only the deck or combining it with other rider back decks.

  • Subtle one way cards with a two ways aspect
  • Joker reveal
  • Card reveal on tuck box

Pledge here on Kickstarter and receive low introductory pricing and FREE USA domestic shipping. This Bicycle® de-bossed Rider Back Deck will retail for $14.95 once released to retail outlets.

INTERNATIONAL BACKERS WELCOMED:

We know the shipping has become insane for all backers outside the USA. Even trying to keep the costs at minimum regarding the fulfillment, sending decks abroad is really expensive. As an international backer himself, Max wanted to, at least, offer a few Early Birds decks with discounted price only for International backers.

Please, give your support to this project and help this deck to become a NEW STANDARD RIDER BACK DECK. THANKS!

Since 2012, Max Playing Cards has been beside playing cards artists, creators and companies. Looking for the inspiration behind the playing cards, more than 1500 articles have shown all types of styles and designs trying to go beyond the features of the cards showing also part of their soul. The Texture Series is just another way to show the gratitude to all those members of this fantastic playing cards community and also another way to go on working for them all. Please, visit Max Playing Cards and join the newsletter to be in touch with the Playing Cards news.

Collectable Playing Cards is the main Bicycle® Playing Cards producer on Kickstarter. With more than 60 Decks successfully funded (and some more produced without crowdfunding) they have demonstrated a deep and solid experience to produce and also fulfill these campaigns. They also have a wide variety of playing cards available on their website so perhaps you want to visit their website and have a look around while you enjoy this wonderful campaign.

Image


This is a playing card deck made by USPCC, the largest playing card company in the world. It is, obviously, a deck of cards made with paper (the very best and well known Bicycle® stock paper) so don’t expect to receive a deck made out of real marble. I honestly wouldn’t have thought this remark would be necessary but don’t want to disappoint anyone with the final product. ALL the TEXTURE series decks have been created to pretend to be something different from the real material the cards are really made of.

All images are conceptual renderings of the final product exactly the same we have provided USPCC with. The final product may vary from the images supplied during the Kickstarter project due to the printing process. Thank you for your understanding.

RISKS AND CHALLENGES

The Bicycle® Marble Deck has already been approved by USPCC for printing. We expect to receive the the decks by April 2018 and immediately begin shipping to all of our backers. We do not anticipate any challenges with this project.

How do we print and ship out rewards so quickly? We have a very close relationship with USPCC. They are able to print our designs quickly and we have a state of the art fulfillment center to quickly ship out our backer rewards. With out you, our backers, we could not make this happen. A BIG thank you to Kickstarter and most importantly all of you!
