Snake Oil Elixir Playing Cards
The Snake Oil Elixir Deck is a nod to the Snake Oil Salesmen and Miracle Elixir Ads from the late 1800’s. It’s printed by the United States Playing Card Co. and utilizes their amazing Magic Finish. The Snake Oil Elixir Deck is designed by Randy Butterfield (Midnight Cards) and produced by The Blue Crown.
The tuck box features Pen and Ink drawings of an old-school con man/snake oil salesman and a menacing snake. The overall tuck design is reminiscent of old snake oil elixir ads, including over-the-top quotes such as “The Greatest Playing Cards on Earth!” and “The Savior of the Human Race.”
The back card features a borderless Snakeskin pattern that is subtly asymmetrical in the center area. The semi-custom face cards incorporate Arrco courts and look like they’re from the late 1800’s. The Ace of Spades includes the pen and ink con man and snake drawings. The two unique Jokers complete the look with their snake oil elixir ad designs.
The Snake Oil Elixir Deck is “Guaranteed to Cure all your Cardistry, Magic and Gaming Ailments!”
