Squeezers Angel Back Playing Cards

Availability: In Stock
* Color:

The CLASSIC Angel Back Squeezer deck has not been widely available for years ... until now.

Introduced in the late 1800s by New York Consolidated Card Co., the Angel Back was a staple deck for decades, but hasn't been produced for many years.

A favorite of magicians, this beautiful deck has been re-created by U.S. Playing Card artists, who reproduced the artwork using an original Angel Back.

Note especially the court cards. The detailing and color are superior in many ways to the current courts used for Bicycle and Bee decks. And there are subtle differences: the kings', queens' and jacks' faces are slightly larger than current cards, the numbers are slightly thinner, the suit signs are a tiny bit larger and the jack of diamonds has a mustache (the current jack, shown on the right in photo, is clean-shaven).

Also check out the very cool, original design jokers.

The deck also includes one blank-face card and one card with a brief history of the Angel Back. 

These cards were made on a NEW, slightly heavier grade of paper that USPC is using on most custom and magic decks being produced, and also have a high-emboss finish (similar to Air Cushion).
