Best Poker Decks – The Bicycle 1800 Marked Deck

You’ve probably played poker before and know how important it’s to pick the right deck. It should be strong enough to use on the road and in camping. There are many great options, and this list can help you choose the right one.

Bicycle 1800 Marked deck

This deck is intended to look authentically old and warn. The fake aging process makes the cards and tuck boxes look worn, crackled, and broken. They are printed on high-quality Bicycle Cards and come with a handy Gaff for colour changing deck effects.

This deck does not use the traditional clock-style markings like some of the marked cards on the list. Instead, it uses careful distinctions between dark stains or white scratches. It’s a system that requires attention, and is not as easy to spot for tired eyes, but it’s an impressive secret weapon that will make your next poker night a success.

1900 Series Weathered Stampmarks

The 1900 Series is a great choice for anyone who loves playing cards with an authentic old-world look. These decks have a lovely blend of modern and rustic, with rope-outlined tips and subtle touches metallic ink. They are printed on thin-crushed stock, which gives them a linen “magic” finish that’s perfect for holding and handling.

The tuck box and cards are a combination of a simple look and stylish foil, which instantly conveys a sense of luxury and class. This beautiful set of cards will make you stand out from your other decks.

NOC Decks

The NOC decks (Nothing Only Color) are one of today’s most popular types of magic decks. With a minimalist back design, they are great for reading cards and not spreading them. Although they aren’t fully marked, they have a secret marking system that is so hidden that even trained magicians won’t be able to detect it.

1900 Series Mechanic Mechanic Playing cards

The Mechanic decks also have an amazing secret. They don’t use clock-style marks like other marked decks. Instead they use a system that is thematically linked to chess and point values.

These cards are available in blue and red Bicycle Rider Backs and are made by USPCC from classic crushed stock. They are slightly thicker than other standard Bicycle cards, but they are still very soft and easy to hold.

Although you will need to practice a bit to master the markings, it is a great trick to have around for all your card tricks.

The 1900 Series Bicycle Riderbacks are another great choice for magicians and cardists. They combine a classic back design with clever secret markings. The decks come in blue or red Bicycle Riderbacks and are made by USPCC with the same classic crushed material as other Bicycle cards.

The tuckbox and cards are designed to look real age, yet they make a great addition to any magicians collection. They aren’t as long-lasting than the weathered boards on this list but they’re a great way for adding a bit of history to your next performance.
