These reprints are a nice set of cards. There's a simple elegance to the tuck box. The cards handle amazingly well and are so smooth. The back of the cards is a nice old school border weave design like you'd find on older currency.
Aaron Ireland • Colorado • 04/10/13
Love these deck of cards. They are smooth and sharp looking and I keep them close by when doing card tricks. These are a must have deck for any collection!

I had an extra Broadways deck laying around for a while and I started playing around with it and fell in love. I got online to see if I could pick up more, and behold, the exact same deck but with an awesome back design is here on my favorite website. Not exactly a "must have" deck and people will ask about it if you try to use it on the street for lay people as it isn't the 'red bike' back. For a practice session in your room or to show off to friends who already know about your huge card collection, it is an awesome addition.
Eric Stevens • Washington • 03/17/13
These cards are great for some of the more elegant effects and the handling is fantastic. The linen finish allows for a smooth feel but allows the cards to last a little longer than some of my other decks. Buy now!

This is my second order of the Aristocrats. This time, I ordered the blue back version. This color is even more vivid than the red. A very nice handling deck. One of my favorites. I will be buying more of these. Very nice deck.
Kyriakos • Greece • 02/15/13
Nice cards, great design and handling. They are like the first decks. Really good playing cards!
Stephen Milano • New Mexico • 02/08/13
A very smooth handling deck of cards. The stock is a little thin for my personal taste, but I believe this is the spec for the original deck.
Adam • United States • 02/08/13
This deck is great for flourishing. This is one of my favorite decks!
James • GA • 12/28/12
These Aristocrat reprints are some of my favorite handling decks. Springs, cuts, fans, you name it. These handle like a dream. If you're a flourisher this is a must have.
David • Maryland, U.S.A. • 12/11/12
These cards, while they are not like Rebels or other modern decks, are equal to those kinds of decks. The design and handling are superb, with soft stock, a deep red deck (in my case), and nicely colored face cards. A definite buy.
Skipper • USA • 12/09/12
This deck is just awesome for flourishing. It's so amazing. The design is so cool!
RJ • Iowa • 12/01/12
These are my all time favorite deck of cards. They handle perfectly, stock and finish are amazing. If you don't own this deck, you are missing out. I also really love the jokers in this deck, so that's nice too.
Siddharth • India • 11/28/12
I love the deck.
Daniel • Sweden • 11/24/12
These cards are so smooth. They handle great and look awesome. I wonder how these cards will look in green.
Daniel • Ottawa • 11/24/12
The noticeably softer stock feels great in the hands. (Easy to spring straight out of the box.) Everyone must try these once.
Mr. Rui • Portugal • 11/15/12
Absolutely vintage. A great piece of art.
Craig • Melbourne • 11/09/12
Linen Finish is one of the most under appreciated finishes.
I love the feel of just holding them and when I do get down to cardistry they are just so unbelievably smoth. Although the back design looks simplistic, it grows on you after some time. The gold seal adds to the luxorious feel of the deck.
Arman • Illinois • 10/28/12
This cards are a brilliant piece of work. It's very elegant and handles like a dream. They are very durable and the design doesn't take away from the deck. The stock is amazing and it lasts for awhile. You should get some.
Noah • Indiana, USA • 10/18/12
This deck is pretty good.
Joshua • Australia • 10/18/12
This is one of those brilliant decks for just all round everything. If you can, pick up a whole heap of these decks because I can promise you, you will use them for everything!
Simon • Moscow • 10/16/12
It's a great deck, it handles amazingly! The colors are awesome! Thanks t11!
Wei • NYC • 10/16/12
One of the best handling cards is now reprinted. Although I am not a big fan of the back design, at this price, this is the deck to buy.
H&HMagic • Oklahoma • 10/13/12
My favorite standard deck of playing cards! They handle amazingly, especially for fans and packet flousishes, and the linen finish on Aristocrat stock feels amazing in the hands! 5 stars!
Maren Speyer • Miami • 10/07/12
This cards are ridiculously durable. I've been using these cards for a couple of months and they still handle very, very well. Along with that, the deepened colors give it a metallic look. If you don't have any of these, got get some. (I personally prefer the blue.)
Shea Stacy • USA • 10/05/12
One of my favorite cards easily. They have an incredibly smooth finish that feels wonderful in the hands. Along with having a sweet back design and awesome box these are some of the best cards for flourishing.
Michael • California • 10/02/12
The Aristocrats are, without a doubt, my favourite cards to flourish with. They spread so effortlessly, yet they work just as well in packet flourishes. And, of course, the back design is absolutely breathtaking. The metallic gold on the court cards are amazing as well. Buy a brick as soon as you can!
J.W. • New York • 09/26/12
I love the handling on this deck. The thin stock and great finish make for great fans, spreads, and shuffles. I don't love the Ace of Spades, however it does have a nice retro feel to it. The gold seal tops it off and cements this deck's status as a regal deck. Love it.
Dan • Canada • 09/25/12
These are probably my favorite cards. Simple, durable and thin.
Harry • GB • 09/25/12
Amazing deck and good price!
Jeffrey • USA • 09/25/12
Simple yet elegant. The stock is amazing and lasts a long time.
azzkikncards • Philippines • 09/24/12
Simple yet elegant. Great stock and will last you a lifetime!
Kelby Dixon • Monroe, GA • 09/23/12
This deck is highly respectable. Feels smooth in the hands and has stock that is to die for. The Aristocrats climb high up on the ladder of cards all around the world.
Pin Shen Phua • Singapore • 09/21/12
This cards are awesome! They have a good amount of ink on them and they last for a long time if kept in good storing conditions.
Ali • Russia • 09/09/12
Both design and handling are AWESOME! Cards stay in shape even after bending or wet hands - even though they are much thinner than regular bikes. Finish is very nice. Performing false cuts on table or in air, cards do not slide but at the same time it is very easy to fan or spread them. Dark red color on pips and gold color on the faces give these cards an "aristocrat feeling".
Sean • Enid, Oklahoma • 08/04/12
They are awesome.
Claude Wyatt • Louisiana • 07/06/12
Guys, my hope is that you won't buy any of these cards because I want them all for myself! Possibly THE best deck of cards ever!
Joshua • Stamford CT USA • 04/28/12
This deck is amazing. Lasts long, feels nice, handles very well, has a nice linen finish, and is a must have for any working card magician or card collector. Highly recommended. :)
Chunx • Perth, Australia • 03/04/12
Amazing deck. Incredibly nice feel to it. I highly recommend to anyone and everyone!
Anonymous • Canada • 02/05/12
Unreal. From the vintage box to the design, to the card stock, theory11 nailed it. Nice design and colour, (faces and backs). The cardstock is very flexible and the finish is perfect. Get these cards if you know whats good for you.
Mitch Rothstein • New Jersey • 12/24/11
Two words: Buy now.
JamesP • Hollywood • 12/22/11
I love these... the banknote back just oozes class. Both the blue and red back colors are rich, as are the deep reds on the face cards. They feel and handle great. In and out of their boxes, they look super next to my cribbage board too. Very classy.
Haritaipan Lalita • Japan • 12/17/11
Vintage looks, but handle like new. Awesome deck.
Andreas • Estonia • 12/15/11
Well, I bought them because they look great and they do. But I have to say, that compared to Bikes or Tally's these cards are much, much more softer and slippery. Regular bikes are stiffer and if you're used to that, the Aristocrats feel a bit strange in the beginning. In general I would still recommend these, because you buy these cards for the look (you can't afford buying blocks of these or at least I can't) and they look amazing.
AvH • Vietnam • 11/04/11
Very smooth. Very nice. The design looks simple but awesome. This deck is of high quality and highly recommended.
Håvard G. Y. • Norway • 10/24/11
Guys, just get this deck! The quality is amazing! I don't understand why, but you can do awesome fans with them, and at the same time they stick together which makes them really good for flourishes. The cards just stay in shape without getting bends and crimps like normal bikes. Just awesome!
Mike • Washington DC • 10/16/11
These cards are pretty awesome. Although they are excellent cards, they really aren't much better than a deck of plain old Bicycles. The only real difference is a psychological one. Bicycles are ordinary, everyday cards while Aristocrats are NEW and they look cool, and they need to be bought on a website! If pizzazz is what you want from a deck, buy the Aristocrats. But, if quality is what you're looking for, just remember that Bicycles are just as good and 3 dollars cheaper.
Steve H. • Classic and Elegant • 10/15/11
A lot of cards that have been released within the last 2-3 years never really made any sort of impact on the type quality that these Aristocrat cards offer. The box design is very elegant and the gold seal also add another dimension of class rarely seen in a great deal of various decks of cards.
The linen finish that has been used with the Aristocrat 727 Banknote cards has been in my top 3 finishes ever used on the type of playing cards I love to use. The other two finishes are the imported French paper for the JAQK Cellar cards, and the finish for David Blaine's White Lions.
Once you get a hold of one of these decks, you know that they did everything possible to insure you have the highest quality possible in a deck of cards. So if you're a collector of playing cards or are looking for a truly luxurious style playing cards, then look no further and purchase these Aristocrat 727 Banknote cards, and you will certainly not regret the purchase.
Jay • QLD, Australia • 10/08/11
These are the greatest cards I've ever handled. Also the best looking cards I've ever seen. Buy as many as humanly possible; right now.
J. Jordan • Branson, MO • 10/08/11
Easily the best handling, smoothest, longest lasting cards I've ever owned. And I own them all.
Mayank • Mathura • 10/03/11
These are the best cards ever made in the history of the universe!
Zach • Detroit • 09/28/11
One of the BEST decks I've handled in a really long time! I highly recommend these.
Don • Yonkers, NY • 09/27/11
I've been using my Aristocrats before they were available here. They really are a fine quality deck. The stock is excellent, the metallic gold on the face cards is striking and the reds are that darker, muted red found on casino playing cards. Equally great for a magician's/cardist's performance or the poker table.
I would give them five stars if 1) they were also a traditionally-cut deck for easy face-down faro and weave shuffles, and 2) they were priced a little cheaper, closer to what a Tally-Ho deck costs (and Tallys are cut the traditional way, to boot).
Having said that, for a classy and truly luxurious look to your act, these are hard to beat for the cost and I don't think you'll find them cheaper at retail anywhere else. The simple-by-comparison ace of spades design, deep reds and gold accents just ooze class without having to scream it up to the rafters. Identical jokers are a nice bonus for magicians who use that feature in their act.
Derek • Richmond Hill, ON • 09/24/11
These decks are amazing. I've had them for a while now and they are definitely worth picking up.
Alex • Brazil • 09/24/11
They look great and feel great! The stock is a little soft, though, but I still like them. The Ace of Spades is simple and elegant and the jokers look... well... 'aristocraty' (I know this is not a word).
Cesar M. • Santiago, Dominican Republic • 09/24/11
If Polo Ralph Lauren created playing cards, this is what they would look and FEEL like!
Benjamin Kats • Brooklyn, New York • 09/24/11
I had these cards for a while and man they are amazing. I highly recommend you buy them, even if it is just one deck.
