Bicycle Americana is a deck that could have come straight off of a faro table in Tombstone, Arizona or Deadwood, South Dakota and been passed down through your family ever since. The card backs are period-accurate, and the cards are designed with a crinkled look and an aged tint, as if old enough to have been handled by Wild Bill Hickok himself. (But don’t let the look fool you—in reality, the cards have a luxurious linen finish and air-cushion stock).
The custom art by the inimitable Russell Kercheval includes sheriff “kings” and saloon girl “queens,” along with custom aces and jokers.
Printed in a limited edition with a custom tuck box.
