This is one of the best decks ever made! The design is outstanding, the handling is top-notch! All the details were put together in a way that doesn't allow you to come up with a better look for this deck!
Kyriakos • Greece • 02/06/13
JAQK is a collector's item. Perfect in cardistry. An awesome combination with red metallic inks. Some of the best playing cards.
Liam • England • 01/01/13
Just when I thought you couldn't improve the JAQK deck you make a red one, perfect.
James • GA • 12/28/12
A fantastic fully custom deck from JAQK Cellers. I love the court cards, they are some of my favorites. I missed out on the original release of the Blue JAQKs so I had to get them on the secondary market but I am sure glad I didn't miss these! Both JAQK decks are some of my favorite cards in my whole collection. Find some asap if you don't have any already!

Red JAQK Decks look amazing!
Good job Theory11 on making them extremely nice and with good quality.
Lian • PA • 12/11/12
When I got this deck of cards, I just wanted to play with them. I didn't want to do magic with them. Just shuffle up, and deal. They feel great.
Pain • Australia • 11/17/12
Just glad I got myself half a brick. Love the look of them.
Mr. Rui • Portugal • 11/14/12
This deck is a precious masterpiece. Really good quality. They handle really well.
Billy B. • Earth • 10/28/12
These cards are the sexiest cards I have ever seen, they handle so well.
Arman • Illinois • 10/28/12
These cards are so great! I love the metallic ink on the Red JAQKS and the embossing on the box. They handle great and they are so beautiful. This cards look very impressive and professional. You should get it.
Mr. H • Earth • 10/18/12
I thought the blue ones were great. This is outstanding! This is an extremely classy deck for everyone who loves cards. PICK THIS UP!
Chris • NZ • 10/18/12
Simple and elegant, just stunning to look at - handle like a dream.
Austin • Ohio • 10/18/12
I was able to get 16 packs of these beautiful looking cards before they sold out. I love the design, and the deck overall, but the handling isn't as great as the original, with the exception of it's faro.
Wei • NYC • 10/16/12
I was able to snatch up a brick before they sold out. Overall this is a nice deck but the handling is not that good. To people who said this version looks so much better than the blue one, you must be crazy or never seen a blue JAQK before. The metallic ink Red JAQKs got nothing on the blue ones!
Piotr C. • Canada • 10/15/12
These cards are very very nice. They handle well, look amazing and feel so good in the hands. Glad I picked some up when I did!
H&HMagic • Oklahoma • 10/13/12
I am so glad I got my hands on three of these before they sold out! The design is elegant and they look much better than the blue Cellars. My one complaint is that they don't handle as well as most T11 decks, but that is probably because they are made for playing more than magic and flourishing, and they are produced by a wine company. But I can't complain! Great deck of cards.
Kirill • Russia • 10/11/12
I was really excited, when I got a package with JAQK Red. This is unique and nice deck. In hands it looks better than in teaser :)
Handling is perfect. JAQK Red makes your perfomance much more stunning because of really nice back design. I recommend this deck for everyone!
Craig • Melbourne • 10/07/12
I was lucky enough to get my hands on one of these and they are extraordinary.
Now if only T11 would sell the poker chips as well!
Tuval • Israel • 10/03/12
These are gorgeous!!!
Simon • Sheffield, UK • 09/28/12
Amazing deck! The court cards are some of the best I've ever seen. They handle like a dream. Thank you t11! :)
David Meneses • Washington DC • 09/25/12
These cards are beyond gorgeous. The box in my opinion looks better than the cards! I haven't been able to put these cards down. Get your hands on some any way you can.
azzkikncardz • Philippines • 09/24/12
Painting the town red tonight? Then you better have this deck with you while you're at it!!! Classy decks!!
Jackson • Earth • 09/22/12
This deck is very elegant and handles very well. :)
Abraham Leija • Texas • 09/22/12
The most elegant deck I own. I was able to get these the first day they were on sale and I loved them. They are a masterpiece.
George • UK • 09/21/12
My favorite deck of my whole collection. They are stunning, simplistic and so nice to handle.
Jeffrey • USA • 09/21/12
I love these cards. They're great. My one problem is they are not the best for handling but none the less awesome cards.
Kyriakos Kortsalos • Athens, Greece • 09/21/12
Amazing deck! I love the red colour and the finish is very nice.
Jonathan • Oklahoma • 09/21/12
So glad I bought two of them, but so sad I'll never open them. But still definnately worth it.
Nicolas • Switzerland • 08/31/12
Amazing cards, beautiful cards, the best I've ever had. Thank T11.
Joshua • USA • 08/28/12
Wow. I was very sad when these cards sold out on T11, so I picked up a deck at Tannen's Magic Shop. And WOW. That's all I have to say. Amazing box, cards, and feel. Recommended!
Aryan • Australia • 08/28/12
Two words... Awesome cards.
Sam • Los Angeles, CA • 08/23/12
These cards are simply amazing.
Maren • Miami • 08/07/12
One of my all time favorite decks. I've been using these cards for a couple of days so far and let me just say that the design is beautiful on both the back and the box, these cards handle like a dream.
JamesP • Hollywood • 08/01/12
Wow! I still have a brick of the original Blue ones left, and I just got this brick of Red. They are every bit the fantastic cards the Blue ones are, with a few little changes (Good? Bad? Read on).
All 54 cards are original art. Both jokers, which are different colors, and all the card faces including court cards are unique to this deck. You will not find either the backs or fronts of these cards on *any* other deck, period. They are unique and gorgeous - as I wrote in my review of the originals, the court cards feature a different grape-related theme for each. The suit pips are printed in a classy two-tone red for the hearts and diamonds and black/charcoal for the spades and clubs. Really really nice cards.
Improvement: The foil on the box really flashes. It looks great.
The Change: The Blue deck box pattern is stamped, with the foil applied to the raised parts. That is, the pattern is raised from the background, as on a coin. The cool thing about this is that there is a blind-stamped grape vine pattern on the "blank" parts of the grey paper. You can feel the raised vines (and see them in good light) but they aren't inked so they are very subtle. The stamping is visible on the inside of the box and flap too - supremely classy.
The Red deck has incuse printing - the printed part is stamped into the paper and is lower than the background - it is deep rather than raised. This makes the foil really flash, but the blind-stamped grape vines are missing! The grey paper background is just flat grey paper now. I suspect this is less costly. But the foil is flashier...
So the newer Red deck box is flashier and looks fantastic. The older original blue deck box is supremely subtle and gorgeous.
The new cards themselves are a dead match for the originals - absolutely identical other than the color of the backs. It's the boxes that have subtle differences.
Both decks are sublime and complement each other brilliantly. I'm lucky to have both!
Matt • USA • 07/30/12
Just got them today. Haven't opened them but the box is just beautiful. Can't wait to open them up.
Josh Adams • England • 07/30/12
I have finally received one and it was worth the stress. The best design and amazing stock. Theory11 never let us down and I must say - one of the best decks ever.
Morten • Denmark • 07/30/12
My favorite deck had always been the t11 JAQK Cellars. I just love them. I was sure you couldn't find a better deck. I was wrong. These red JAQKs handle just as beautiful as the original t11 JAQKs - but they look even better. The box design is incredible with the red shine and the metallic ink on the cards. Amazing. Fantastic job guys! Love my 9 decks.
Evan • USA • 07/29/12
When I saw they were selling JAQK's in red, I knew I had to get them. Everything, starting with the box is absolutely amazing. The cards are perfect! I'm so glad I got 2 decks, I don't plan on opening one. These cards handle unbelievably and have a gorgeous design to match their superior quality. I feel horrible for anyone that didn't get them while they were in stock because these are easily the single greatest decks I have held.
Sam • USA • 07/28/12
Got two and I have to say, this is an incredible deck! The cards look AWESOME! I hope to get the originals soon too!
Roy • USA • 07/28/12
This is a beautiful work of art that I am so proud to be an owner of! Absolutely a must-have item for anyone who loves cards! Just the amazed look on peoples faces when you pull these out.
This is the style magicians look for. Clean, elegant, beautiful, and most of all: eye catching. If you perform with this deck, you will be remembered.
Brian • MD, USA • 07/27/12
AMAZING deck. Just got some in the mail an hour ago and I couldn't be happier with them. They turned out so much nicer then I imagined and now that they're gone, I feel proud to own one of a few decks.
Maren Speyer • Miami • 07/26/12
I just received this deck and I'm going to be getting the 1st edition soon and let me just say, this deck might be the the closest deck to perfection that i have ever handled and if you're considering getting these go on ebay right now and find some!
James Chesmore • Denver, CO • 07/25/12
These cards are just as amazing as the original JAQK Cellars if not better. I feel very lucky to own these cards, I love them!!!
Ali G. • Kuwait • 07/25/12
I'm really glad I got these before they sold out! They are truly amazing cards that are simple yet beautiful. They also have amazing designs both on the backs and on the fronts (which are custom designs). I highly recommend these!
Brandon Blythe • Australia • 07/25/12
Glad I got 3. They're now all sold out.
Tommy • Ireland • 07/24/12
These cards are amazing!! The box is an absolute piece of art.
Gavin • GA • 07/24/12
I'm glad I got these.
Alvin Tan • Adelaide, Australia • 07/24/12
In my years of card collecting and magic, this is the first deck of cards I bought a brick of. Can't wait for them to arrive.
Chris • New Zealand • 07/24/12
Looks stunning. First order from theory11 - can't wait for them to come.

Love these! This deck will look awesome next to the original.
Nathan • New York • 07/22/12
Look amazing, got 2 decks and they handle beautifully. My new favorite deck.
Brandon Cavazos • United States • 07/22/12
This is my first purchase that I will receive in my hands besides some online downloads. Honestly I can't wait until the box comes. These look absolutely beautiful. So excited!
Brandon Blythe • Australia • 07/21/12
These look amazing. Wasn't a big fan of the original but these look sick. It's my first order from t11, because of my location I got 3. Can't wait.
Keefe • Singapore • 07/21/12
