Those Richard Turner Cards...

Postby Lance Pierce » February 2nd, 2009, 1:35 pm

Bill asked me to post this on his behalf:

===============

Hi Everyone,

I hardly ever make post anywhere but Im excited that Richard Turner has finally created what I feel is the best quality Bicycle playing card Ive had in my hands! They do Faros almost automatically. All serious card workers will want these. You will never go back to an inferior playing card after handling these cards. They are called Gold Seal and can be found on richardturner52.com You have to check these out!

Richard sent me a few decks and I've been fiddling with them. They're very nice, Faro well, I like them. Like all US Playing Card Company cards, they a bit too stiff for my passes. I really like stock that is soft and buttery. But I think for most people they are far better than normal Bikes.

I am confused? Are the Di Fatta's cards traditionally cut?
Best John

- "They do Faros almost automatically."

If you do Tabled Faro Shuffle, is it easy w. these new cards?

Walgreen Stud brand cards are pretty nice (made by USPC???), and for a while a local chain of stores carried Carta Mundi Acebrand cards, which seemed nice.

Last night at our local ring meeting, one member brought some green-backed Bikes that he got a Barnes and Noble. I can't find them at B&N website, but they are HERE.

000 I got some USPC plastic WPT(world poker tour)plastic cards for christmas last year. I'm pretty sure the plastic bicycle cards in magazines ads are the same but mine's a bee style print. The ace and jokers are bee's. To me they're not good for sleights. They shuffle and cascade very well though. Its pretty difficult to farro also. I'm sure one can get use to handling them. I couldnt do an ACR, Outstanding triumph or a fan. The cards slide around all over the place it seems so DL's are hard to do.
