The Tom Foolery Back Bicycle 808 Playing Cards, were printed by The United States Playing Card Company over 20 years ago in Cincinatti, Ohio in a very limited run, and are now extremely hard to find, and as such the seals may be slightly discoloured due to the length of time since they were released.
Back in 1978, Tom Mullica opened the "Tom-Foolery Magic Bar Theater" in Atlanta, Georgia. After opening the bar Tom joint forces with the USPC to print a run of special Bicycle cards with backs featuring the club's logo in a burgundy colour. These cards are signed by the man himself.
These decks were purely for his own use during his magic shows at the club, and are still packaged with the U.S. Playing Card seal intact. Highly collectible and a unique deck for anyone wanting something a little different to perform with or for your home poker games.
