This is the first time that the US Playing Card Company has printed a deck with metallic green ink backs and metallic faces to match. The black on black foil stamped tuck case is embossed both on the inside and the outside, leaving no detail uncovered. The custom Gatorback seal is a throw-back to the playing card tax stamps that were required between 1862-1965, issued by the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, the same authority that designs US currency. The card stock, embossing pressure, printing press type, and direction of cut were all carefully chosen with no expense spared.

All of these details are not just details, they make the deck.
