Who else sells jumbo cards is not the question the question would be who else produces jumbo cards? There are other companies that do make them. There not Bicycles of course but there still jumbo decks. I believe most are manufactured in China. The quality is not that good but if you have to have jumbo's there you go there out there just don't expect much in the way of quality.

There going to be non coated (Even if they say they are) They won't fan well and will stick together often too. The card stock is going to be of poor quality as well so don't expect much from whatever jumbo decks you buy once the ones the U.S.P.C.C. are all gone. Sorry to paint a gloomy picture for you but those are the facts.

Piatnik makes quality jumbo decks. They are thinner than the Big Bikes but still very high quality. Kardwell has them for $20 a deck.

I just red this post and went on the Internet to try to find a site that still has them. They all seem to be out of stock. Does anyone knows where there is some left ?

We should write to the US playing card company to tell them that this decision is highly discriminatory of giants. What are they going to be playing with ?

I don't know where they are, but there have been several threads about the USPCC and what they will be making. Im sure USPCC knows we are not happy with this. Use search

I believe that USPCC is only temporarily suspending production on certain decks while they move to the new facility in Kentucky. This includes Jumbos, Tally Hos, and a few other decks. That's what I've heard anyway.

In the meantime, it looks like Magic Makers has done a big run of various "common" gaffs, including Jumbos, so there should be some availability in the short term before USPCC resumes general production.
