Bicycle Standard Playing Cards

I bought several of these decks when they first came out and when I opened them I was dismayed to discover that the size of the images on the cards were significantly smaller than those on the Poker 808 deck. This was especially noticeable on the picture cards. The result was I could not use any of my gaffs with this Standard deck. I have been told that in subsequent runs this problem has been addressed and that the faces are now the same size as the 808's. Can anyone confirm that this is indeed the case? Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi, Marty:

I was curious too, so today I just bought a 12 deck box of the Bicycle Standards from my local Sam's club: they have faces that are consistent in size with the old 808 faces.

Good luck!
