[i]THE COURTS...[/i]

These court cards stay true to the original Bicycle design, but with an updated marble teal and red color. It is outlined with royal gold to show off the status of the figures. The backdrop is consistent with the granite black. The golden pips extravagant design goes very well with the array of colors as well.

[i]THE ACES...[/i]

The detail in these golden pips are like nothing that you've seen before. It is an intricate yet symmetrical design that flows through each corner. Again, the gold really pops when placed on the black back drop. The "A" is a long subtle reminder that you have just selected an Essence Ace.

If the print run is over 1000, the extra decks will be destroyed. These will not be offered as add-ons.Essence Lux is a rare find and that is why we covered it in royal red and gold.

[i]THE COURTS...[/i]

The court cards are either completely gold or completely royal red. The pips are a little less dramatic than the original Essence Deck pips. It gives off a fresh and visible pip that will give card collectors a nice view when fanned out.
