Great glasses for Poker Sized Cards

Just thought I'd pass this along in case someone else is looking for these:

Fits poker sized cards just about perfectly--the cards are able to be taken in and out without fumbling and the parallel vertical sizes make the glasses look snug to the cards, giving the impression they can't be manipulated.

Note: These glasses are handmade so the stem diameters and shape vary quite a bit. I ended up going to a b & m C & B and sorted through about 30 some odd glasses to find the ones that worked the best for my particular hand/finger size. (Yeah, I got some strange looks from the salepersons.) Once I figured the proper custom dimensions, the necessary moves became automatic and precise by feel alone. I only wish that they were made of polycarbonate and broke down for travel. Other than that, they are terrific!

Hope this helps. Cheers!
