Hey Magic Cafť!

Iím very proud to announce that this wednesday july 6th the Expert Playing Card Company is introducing a new series of playing cards that is specially created for the working magician.

Being the web-guy for the EPCC Iíve had the opportunity to try and test these decks (and their matching magnetic brick box) and Iíve got to say: they rock.

Ok, Iím a bit biasedÖ But they really rock.

A normal pack of bikes lasts about 3 hours in my hands (sweat, cardistry etc) and it was a great surprise to see the new Superior Brand lasting well over 3 full days of heavy use :O

Check http://www.superiorbrandplayingcards.com for all the ins and outs and make sure to get on the notifications list!

Cheers,
Aron

PS: Really looking forward to hearing what other people think, don't be a stranger! Leave your reply Smile

Hey Aron,
If you are running through Bikes in 3 hours, you should really try these out: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/S11123
Reg. WalMart bought bikes last no time in my hands, these last like a week. They are amazing.

Hey Erik!

Thanks for the tip, will definitely pick these up and give them a try :D
(Small fyi: I meant ohio bikes with blue seals... Black seals from KY last 30 minutes xD)

Cheers,
Aron

They were supposed to be released today, but nothing on the website. What happened?

They seem to be available now.
I have placed my order.

Which ones did you order? I don't see the ones that were advertised. They were in a black case on the "coming soon" page and there's nothing like that on the site.

Hey blurrylines, I ordered the black ones. Can't recall what ones were on the coming soon page.
Here's a link to the ones I got: https://shop.conjuringarts.org/store/pc/Superior-Brand-Classic-Back-Brick-Black-PSTPD-in-US-2p1352.htm

Do the Superior cards have an Air Cushion or Linen finish like most Bicycle/Tally-Ho/Aristocrat or more a smooth/ivory finish like their Bicycles did a few years ago?

No longer pleased with Superior Brand. They are now printed in PRC. Was not happy when the red backs had three different shades. The gaffs, the old red and now the new red.

None of the regular decks come with any of the standard gaffs.
