Mike, I found three unopened Arrco No. 84 Tahoe Poker decks in one of my boxes of old magic, two red back and one blue back. I bought a brick of these back in the 80's when, if memory serves, Harry Lorayne recommended them in his publication. They were great cards back in the day. With that said, I should warn you that the last time I opened one of these pristine decks a couple of years ago, the cards inside the foil wrapper were so sticky they were unusable. Shoot me a PM if you're still interested. I find it hard to believe, but just checking on ebay, a few folks are asking $50 to $100 per deck.

I have maybe a dozen unopened decks and last time I cracked one open, the entire deck was stuck together like the old Paul Harris Solid Deception deck. Very disappointing.
