The printer down the street has two sheets of Bicycle cards... uncut. I can't remember exactly what he called them. One has red backs, one blue. I'm not too sure if he is interested in selling, he is not a card guy. just a printer. He seems to think that these were really rare, I said I might be able to sell them if he wanted. He is going to give me a week to think about it. They do have very slights cuts, in three or four places, but he shrugged this off as...??
Has anybody ever seen anything like this before? Anybody out there interested? My cut 25%. I also will add that he tacked them up to the wall, so they are not perfect.

I've seen them for sale somewhere, in mass quantities. Can't recall where, but I do remember seeing them within the last 6 months on some web site.

You can find these on ebay all the time. They (U.S. Playing Card Co.) used to advertise 'em on the "ad cards" in the deck for about $8. They sell on ebay for around $12. I have one framed in the magic studio. I put it in a uniframe (just glass with edge clips and a matte) and it looks great...I've had it about 10 years now.

Now, if US Playing Cards could cut one of those sheets into a deck with straight, symmetrical borders...that would be truly rare!

Max -- as you can tell from the postings above, uncut Bicycle sheets are not rare. I've got 2 myself, one framed and the other -- well I figured I'd make up some long cards, which I may, some day. I also wanted to try a "mismade" card (a la mismade bill).

I bought them, I think, from Lee Jacobs.

I purchased my sheet directly from the US Playing Card Company.

I wrote a letter to the address on the Ace of Spades requesting information to order a "sheet of uncut playing cards." They sent back an order form....

Don't forget a self addressed stamped envelope.
