Jerry's Nuggets Backstory:
In 1970, Jerry's Nugget Casino printed what would become one of the most collectible playing card decks ever manufactured by the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC). They made them for the tables but opted not to use them and put them in storage for 20 years! Playing card expert, Lee Asher, recognized the unique quality and feel of these cards and began evangelizing about them. In due course, Jerry's Nugget playing cards became legendary.
By the fall of 1999, these cards sold out, yet the demand continued to grow. Today, authentic Jerry's Nugget cards are among the most desirable and expensive modern decks on the market. After more than three years of pursuit and negotiation, a deal with Jerry's Nugget Casino and Expert Playing Card Company is making them available again!
In homage to the original decks, we have decided to print with USPCC on their Premium stock (formally called Bee stock). We are THIN CRUSHING this stock to the thickness of an original Jerry's card. And while these new decks won't feel the same as the originals, we've modernized them for today's tastes.
The Modern Feel Jerry's decks will be TRADITIONALLY CUT, which makes them perfect for faro work! They will shuffle bottom up so table faros will be a breeze.
THE PRINTING PRESS:
Unlike almost all other custom decks that are printed one sheet (one deck) at a time, these Modern Feel Jerry's Nugget decks will print on the biggest and fastest press in the USPCC factory - THE WEB PRESS!
- Thin Crushed USPCC Premium (Bee) stock for the Modern Card Feel
- Traditionally cut
- Original Back and Face design, including the original Jokers and Ace of Spades
- Printed and crushed on USPCC's WEB press for outstanding handling
