I got the uncut sheet and it is AMAZING. The sheet looks great and comes with the deck, which has great handling.
I HIGHLY recommend the uncut sheet. Any other uncut sheet wouldn't have the amazing color and personality this one has in each of its 56 parts.
Great Product. Very Unique. I LOVE IT.

About two months ago I bought a deck of these cards and got straight down to using them. THEY'RE GORGEOUS! I spent about an hour just looking at them, then another hour playing around with fans, flourishes etc. all are slick to perform, the quality is amazing! They have started to get a bit tattered after months of use but still perform great, which amazes me!
In fact, I love them so much I will be ordering the uncut sheet soon, which includes another deck! (Which I'm absolutely chuffed about) so I will have some beautiful wall art and also a beautiful new deck!
All in all, this is probably my favourite deck of cards ever, which have beautiful design and handle fantastically.
A MUST BUY!

This deck is a must have for collectors. It is such an awesome piece of art containing even more awesome pieces of art. I have the uncut sheet framed and hung near the entrance of my house and it never fails to cause my guests to stop and stare. Having owned the uncut for almost a year now, every time I look at it, I would see something new and wonder how I missed that. Its just like reading a magic book over and over again. I rate it 6 spades

Everything about this deck of cards is beautiful; so much so, that it was days before I broke open the deck. I almost didn't... but I have a philosophy that a thing which is meant to be used, and is not, is an affront to the craftsman. So I cracked that seal.
The box is gorgeous, with its black-on-black raised design, and a gold glyph I keep staring at, trying to read. Even the "tax stamp" is beautiful, and after cutting it, I stuck it back together and saved it.
Then the cards: silken to the touch, each one an individual piece of art. Each one a story to tell yourself as you look over them. I'm not certain you could play with this deck... I, at least, would be far too distracted by the imagery.
Almost immediately upon shuffling the deck, some of my cards became dirty and scratched from the surface I used. And you know what? I'm fine with that. Because they are cards, and meant to be handled.
Anyway: I have a lovely, uncut sheet that is waiting for a frame, and will soon be on my wall.
If you love cards, trust me, order a pack. Use them. Stare at them. Whatever you want. Because they are definitely worth the cost.
I wonder if I can get them by the case?

I have only recently gotten into cards...and have been all over the web looking for unique decks. I saw these and took a few days to consider wether or not to buy them. Finally, I decided that I definitely needed these for my collection! They came the other day and I immediately opened them. I was so amazed by them. They are some of the best, if not the best, cards I have ever come across. I never knew that playing cards could be so beautiful and amazing! I don't want to use them for card tricks as I am afraid that one of my friends might rip them, so I will just use them to show off. Thanks to Dan and Dave for creating such a beautiful deck of cards! I am glad that I got them!

The most beautiful and unique deck of cards. My girlfriend bought this for me knowing how enamored I am with everything associated with cards. The deck is stunning. Each painting or illustration is an interpretation of each individual card, including the two jokers. The tuck case is exquisite. As you may know, the designs are done by an advertising company that makes high end design for alcohol branding. They obviously brought the same level of quality to this project as every other.

If you see a deck similar to this but with gilded edges, say on Ebay or elsewhere, that is the deck sold directly by Stranger and Stranger in a commemorative box for two hundred dollars. This is exactly the same deck, without the commemorative box set, and without gilded edges. It's the same artwork and same cards.

What am I going to do with cards I can't play with? Well, I'm planning to cut my own mat and construct my own gilded frame to display them. I did not purchase the uncut sheet which probably would have been easier to mat and frame, but I feel each card is interesting enough to mat individually. Hopefully pictures to follow soon.

Dear Ultimate,
I think we need to start spending more time apart. Every time I look at you, my mind wanders over your many
various features and I lose track of what I am supposed to be doing. You have a power over me and I need to
begin to figure out how to resist your visual temptations. Every part of you has an incredible story to tell. Did I make a
mistake bringing you into my life? Sorry but I will just have to leave you hanging.

You can see how beautiful the artwork is in the photos above, but you cant see how amazing these cards are to have as a framed uncut sheet. They really are a work of art. Every single card! As an entire uncut sheet, they form like voltron to make an incredible wall hanging that people love to look at and discover all the nuances of the individual cards. My advice is to buy the uncut sheet and accept the free deck of amazing cards for free! When you run the numbers, this price, for what you're getting...is a steal. Get them now and enjoy them forever.

These are indeed the epitome of an ULTIMATE DECK. I did not purchase these cards (instead I won them from Freshers Online Magazine), and they were sent direct from Romania (!), but that just made receiving them today all the sweeter. They handle like butter, and the artwork is astounding and unlike anything I've ever seen or touched. My only regret is that i didn't win two; I often purchase two of a collectible deck so that I have one sealed for the collection itself and then one I can actually perform with.

FIVE STARS ALL THE WAY!

Have you ever wanted to own a small art gallery? Well that's basically what these are. The artwork on these cards is absolutely breathtaking, making every color change and every shuffle look beautiful and unique. They handle wonderfully, I dont know what it is, but they are a joy to work with. They may not be absolutely practical for everything, but they are perfect if you want to add a touch of mystique and intrigue to your set. Or if you just want to look at them... that right there is worth the price of admission. I just wish I was able to grab up an uncut sheet while they were still in print...

Andy-
