The discovery of gold in the Black Hills in 1874 sparked one of the greatest gold rushes of American history. The WILD WEST: Deadwood Deck focuses on iconic characters and legends from the Black Hills and Deadwood areas. Every element in the Cards and Tuck, except for the Fonts and Tuck Interior Map, was hand-drawn in pencil by Randy Butterfield.
The WILD WEST: Deadwood Deck is printed by Legends Playing Card Co., with their Taiwan printer, and utilizes their exceptional Classic Finish. The Tuck Box utilizes a premium Matte paper stock, 4-Color Process graphics, Gold FOIL, White PANTONE Ink, clear UV Spot Ink and Embossing. The Back-Card Design is featured on the Tuck Back, and a Deadwood Main Street pencil drawing and WILD WEST: Deadwood Logo are prominent on the Tuck Front. The Tuck Interior includes a 4-Color Process map of the Black Hills region in the late 1800s. The Back-Card features hand-drawn decorative elements in different shades of brown, and also incorporates a Deadwood Marshal’s Badge within the design. The Court Cards include historic characters such as Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane, Seth Bullock, Annie Oakley, General Custer, Sitting Bull, Buffalo Bill Cody, Crazy Horse and more. The Sepia Tone Courts matchup perfectly with the light tan background colors. Similar to the Courts, the Aces, Jokers, Backgrounds and PIPs were all hand-drawn in pencil. The Jokers feature a full-body drawing of Wild Bill Hickok. And each Suit incorporates a different background drawing to match with the Courts’ focus – Saloon Interior for Spades, Deadwood Main Street for Clubs, Native American Village for Hearts and The Needles of Custer State Park for Diamonds.
The WILD WEST: Deadwood Deck is perfect for any fan of American History!
