One of the most recognized mythological creatures of all time, Pegasus is a winged horse that inspires many. Pegasus playing cards are an amazing representation of this Greek myth.
Designed by Drew Hughes, the Pegasus deck has 100% custom artwork. The back design features Pegasus among the clouds in a finely detailed illustration. The Jacks represent Bellerophon (Pegasus's rider), with Poseidon for the Kings and Athena for the Queens. The diptych Jokers combine together to create one singular image of the Chimera.
The custom tuck box is printed both outside and inside, and has an embossed white foil logo on the front. It is topped off with a custom sticker seal depicting the head of Medusa. The spot cards are customized but still highly playable, and you also receive two bonus gaff cards.
Pegasus playing cards also feature UltraLux™ Finish. UltraLux™ uses casino-grade European card stock that has been crushed to the perfect thickness, with just the right amount of linen texture. Penguin then applies vegetable-based inks and AquaFlow™ water-based coating to create a deck that handles like an absolute dream. The cards are traditionally cut with smooth edges that provide just the right amount of grip. These cards are soft enough to get to work straight out of the box, but durable enough to meet the needs of a full-time magician, cardist, or card sharp.
"I'm floored by how awesome these feel. I'd carry a deck on this stock into any show."
- Erik Tait, IBM Gold Cups Close-Up Competition Champion
"UltraLux is fascinating! I've seen a lot of experimentation over the years with the 'feel' of various playing card stocks; some good, most bad. But playing with the UltraLux stock for the first time had me thinkin', 'now that's a damn good deck of cards!' (Which was a very refreshing experience)"

"These puppies flew in under the radar! Solid crisp feel yet flexible for flourishing. I dig 'em!"
