Bicycle Vintage Racer Back Playing Cards-RED


The Bicycle playing card company has opened their vaults to re-release a deck design not seen in over a century! In 1895 the Bicycle Playing Card Company released a deck of cards with a bicycle poised to race in each corner. In the center, the original encircled tri-winged emblem of the American Wheelmen, an organization that was formed in 1880 to promote safe cycling and protect the rights of cyclists. Things were riding smoothly until in 1906 it was discovered that these cards were the favored of cheats because the American Wheelman emblem was not reversible. Bicycle changed the design to a 4 winged emblem and this design was assumed gone forever, though remnants of this design still persist in modern Rider back cards with the wheel in the center holding the winged riders in a circle. Now more than a 100 years later Bicycle has re-released this classic design on its modern standard of card quality. It is the best of the past and present here and ready for you to get your hands on this piece of history thought gone forever. THESE ARE THE RED BACKED DECKS.
