I've made some scans of the card faces, backs, and box. Is someone willing to receive them through e-mail and host them somewhere? Thanks.

Couldn't find the blue ones...would they be "fashion" cards as well? that's what the dotted ones and the colorful swirl back ones are. Btw the swirl ones might be great for fanning.

I've e-mailed the pictures to a kind soul to get hosted, they'll hopefully be up soon. Another feature of these light blue bikes is that they come with 2 identical "big" Jokers, as opposed to the normal one big, one smaller with text.

Are the light blue bikes in a box like regular bikes or the clear-style plastic box like the fashion cards?

I picked up a dozen packs today, They were advertised for $1.97 but rang up $2.49 a pack. I had to make a fuss to get the price they listed.

I am a little skeptical that they are the same quality of Bikes. They feel a little thinner and flimsier, plus the blemishes on the faces (which are all blue as well) show up easily (white speckles).

The box, while Bicycle, is a simpler version. No where does it state air cushion finish although they appear to be. For those that don't know, the only colors you will find in this deck is light blue and white. No red and the court cards have no multicolor.

A little dissapointed actually, but it is something new at least. You will not find these cards at the Target website.

Like I said before, I've scanned some images and sent them to someone to get hosted, now just waiting to see them. If anyone is really anxious to see them, I can send them to someone else for hosting.

Oh for God sakes, some one email me the pics and I will host them right away with a link.

And btw, they are not "Tigers," they are Bicycles.

These cards are really not that impressive. First becasue of the blue faces they can't really be used for reverses, and the blue on the faces is not consistant.

Is there also a normal faced card with them, just like in the Black Tiger Deck?

No - Bikes, Tally's, and Bees are all made by the United States Playing Card co. I think they are all on the same stock, but all have different finishes (i.e., bikes are air-cushion, tally hos are linoid finish, and bees have a cambric finish)


Linoid, Air-Cushion and Cambric are all the same finish. They were different back in the 1950's and 1960's, but now they are the same. The other finish that USPCCo uses is their "Ivory" finish. You used to be able to get ANY USPCCo deck made up on either their rough card stock or their smooth card stock (Linoid vs. Ivory) which several guys used as a way of cutting the aces.

Now, you are lucky if you can get them to center the backs.

There may be a difference in quality control. Tally-Ho is a regional card, mainly for New York. Bikes are pretty much universal. So they print about 100 times as many of them during a run, maybe more.

I've seen a big range of quality in bikes. Tally-Ho's are fairly consistent.

Regarding the Baby Blue decks. Well, they look like they have just been given a "makeover."

And I don't mean by Oprah.

Well, I certainly think they look interesting. Sort of a blue-print quality. Now if my Target store will just get some of them in stock!

Dear Figerjack

These are only being called tigers as a point of reference due to their odd apperance. We all know they are indeed Bikes but they are different then their red, blue counterparts. In regards o the yawn... these are only a matter of taste lay people do seem to find these cards interesting.... Btw they don't seem to feel they are rigged nearly as often as with the black tigers.
