I think the "Stingers" are pretty cool! You get the advantage of the white border but they also seem to still have the optical advantage of borderless!

I am not quite sure about that ... the white borders will cause a discontinuity of the ``texture" so any optical advantage will be lost. Though I will concede that I have never handled those cards.

USPCC released a special set of the 125th edition- only sold on ebay. It was a wooden box, made from wood from the old factory.--"At this time, we are only selling these cards on Ebay. They are a special deck with each box like the one you see in the picture being handcrafted by a 30 year USPC veteran using the wood from the floors of the 19th century building we occupied until recently.
Thank you for your interest,

If you've seen the "Stingers" you'd get where I was coming from a bit better I think! The border fades into the back design so from what I see (both from my perspective when dealing as well as on video )you get a bit more forgiveness (?) optically! OR, maybe my eye sight has gotten so bad it's all in my mind! Smile
