Anybody knows where I can find these cards?

btw, what do you think about the green backed bicycle?
(feels kind of weird saying this -green, but it look great)

Frank,

I'm not certain that you can "order" Aristocrat cards anywhere. Us Playing Card Company stopped making that deck in about 1984 or 1985.

I have two unopened decks (one blue and one red) and I am keeping them as collector's items.

I just don't think you'll fine any readily available. That is, I don't think some dealer has accidentally stored a case of them on a back shelf and then just recently discovered them.

Hope this info helps

Mike

I don't know about "Aristocratic Cards", but, "Aristocrat" cards was a brand of cards that was sold up through approx the mid 1980s. Just like Bicycles or Bee--just a different back design and, is the opinion of some card workers, a better finish on the cards and maybe a better quality consitentcy.

Hope this helps.

Not only that...but some of the back designs were a one-way back (very imperceptible and deceptive).
