They traded a variety of goods such as knives, hatchets, and beads to the Indians for fur and meat. One of the most sought-after recreational goods traded were playing cards, hard to find at the time. A prevalent frontiersman during this era is on the hunt for a certain rare and particular item. This is where our story begins…

Card-O-Mat (verified owner) –
A nice solid deck. Had some surprises I will not spoil. The card back color
is subtle, with an emphasis on “dusk,” while the box leans more to the lavender. I opened them immediately and they feel perfect. To paraphrase Shakespeare, “Cards fit for the gods.”
I appreciated the X-Decks plastic shipping case, as I carry a deck with me out of habit and that will protect the card box from pocket wear. If you’re buying this deck to collect and not open, consider buying another to actually use. You will not regret it.
