I recently met an artist at my local ren festival. He had a few pieces of art which caught my eye. One, in particular. The piece is called 'Integration', which can be viewed here: http://www.nigelsade.com/gallery/art/integration.html This is fantastic in itself. But after talking with him, I found out he is actually creating this deck of cards. The theme is integration of pirates and ninjas. He is currently 2/3 of the way done, but is in talks with the USPCC to create these decks en masse. It will most likely be in the regular bicycle format, unless he can get enough orders to get a better grade stock/finish. I'm going to be meeting with him within the next two weeks with samples of different cards (split spades, masters, centurions, smoke and mirrors, black tigers, tally ho's). He told me he is going to allow pre-orders and any ideas. My questions are: 1. Would you be interested in obtaining what is sure to be a marvel of a deck? 2. What kind of stock/finish do you believe would be best? All responses will be taken to him personally by myself.
