These souvenir playing cards are inspired by what was once offered complimentary to guests of Ace Fulton's Casino in Las Vegas. Reminiscent of vintage playing cards from casino's like Jerry's Nugget, the Ace Fulton's Casino Playing Cards combine that retro style with a modern stock and finish. And just like Ace's casino, no detail was left unnoticed, inlcuding a few "security" measures. We'll leave those for you to discover though. All in, they're the cards we've always wanted.
Printed by the US Playing Card Company and available in four colors and two finishes.
Cambric: Tobacco Brown & Sunset Orange
Ivory: Red Hot & Dodger Blue
Designed by Brad Fulton and illustrated by Dan Phillips.
For a limited time, Ace is offering 250 of his Midnight Fuel decks from his private reserve. Learn more.
At the Blackpool magic convention this year I had this deck with me, it'd been used for 3 months already and after being handled by loads of people everyone agreed they were better than a brand new pack of bikes.
They have been all over the world with me and they have performed for hundreds of people, the best handling deck and it's a shame they are now out of stock!
Get a red deck. Get a blue deck. Get both because you don't play favorites. Because in this case both the house and the player profit.
Not everyone have the opportunity to own a deck of Jerry's, and it's pointless to own a replica. Ace Fulton is your choice.
There are some differences between editions that are worth knowing.
The first set, Tobacco Brown and Sunset Orange, are my favorite. They have this odd feel of being brand new and broken in at the same time. Style wise they are my favorite too. The boxes look better and the colours have a much more original feel to them. The court cards are not standard, just different enough to be different. The pip style is consistent. They actually look like something a luxury casino would make. They did not, like many, just make a neat back design and slap the regular faces on.
The newer set, the Red Hot and Dodger Blue, have a different feel. It has a plasticy kind of feel, but not cheap novelty card plasticy. If you've ever used an Alladin deck, that is what it is like. It's high quality, and does everything you expect a high quality deck to do, but the plasticiness makes it a little slick and takes some getting use to. Actually, if you have a problem with your hands beening too damp, the Red Hot and Dodger Blue might be perfect for you. I'm not so crazy about the colour. Red and Blue, same old. The red looks like the Sunset Orange except brighter, almost neon. The Blue is a very brilliant blue, and the solid colour of it really stands out. I would give this set a 4 1/2 just because I'm not crazy about the design.
All still worth owning and using. I'm hoping to get a dealers dozen of the orange and brown to get those lovely black ones soon.
