I am one of those people who loves checking out playing card designs, but I’m not really into playing cards, if that makes sense. Artists can be so creative when designing playing card sets, and it’s always neat to check out the new stuff when it hits the Internet. If you enjoy seeing them too, check out the playing cards created with watercolor and pencil here, and if you are a fan of steampunk, you can see some absolutely gorgeous vintage Victorian cards here.
The playing cards I’d like to share with you today are in a class all their own. They are made out of stainless steel! I’ve never seen anything like this before.
How would you shuffle? Playing “52 card pick up” with these things could be dangerous. These are meticulously etched, they are heavy, and they look very fancy. They even come packaged in a fancy black needled cord box. They are known as the most luxurious playing cards in the world. I can’t image someone actually playing cards with them, but apparently people do. Of course, if you want to get your hands on these badboys, it’s gonna cost you. If you are good at poker though, I’m sure you can make the money back quickly. They cost $140 per deck and are available at drinkstuff and firebox.
