Earlier in October, I helped to announce the release of the first Erdnase deck from my friends at the Conjuring Arts Research Center. Today, the second deck in the series has been made available for purchase to members.

From the announcement:
We are very pleased to announce the release of the second deck in our Erdnase 1902 series of playing cards. These are a new design by Guy Hollingworth which build on the previous all-over back design by adding a white border and an elegant S.W.E. and acorn centerpiece. We have maintained the high standard of quality featured in the previous release, retaining the finest Bee Casino 825 paper and special coating.
While we released the first deck in an all-over back design, in keeping with the cards we believe Erdnase to have favored, this new deck is geared more towards magical purposes because of the white border.  Also, we have kept the tradition of offering the cards in Cambric (lightly embossed) and Ivory (smooth) finishes, perfect for a variety of surreptitious interests, or just to suit your preference.

A Conjuring Arts representative supervised all aspects of the production of these cards, including personally overseeing production of printing the backs, embossing, crushing and the final cutting and casing at the U.S. Playing Card Co. factory.

Bill Kalush says, "We truly believe that we’ve made the finest cards that US Playing Card can produce at the present time. These cards were printed in a very limited quantity and there is no guarantee that they will be re-printed. If you need some of these to perform with, practice with, or add to your collection, this is the time to get them."

These are currently only available to members at a discounted rate but will be available, if they do not sell out, to non-members soon. Further, we have done our best to get you the best prices possible on these excellent decks (as low as $2.99, shipped!).
