This Deck was featured by Dan and Dave in a video and the internet went crazy for them. They still are a prized deck by many and to purchase these cost a few pennies as well. So far this is the best deck I have seen or felt that is intended for advertising purposes.
Back in 2005 Absolut Vodka commissioned close-up performers such as Kostya Kimlat, Lee Asher, Doug McKenzie and Daniel Garcia to name a few, and sent them to infiltrate every college, bar and nightclub in the US. These cards were printed and given as gifts to use when performing and to hand out as souvenirs.
Typical advertising decks come on a stock similar to Aviators from Bicycle or in most cases are cheaply made plastic coated disasters just waiting to suck you in. The Absolut Deck is none of those.
Technically you could call the stock and finish a paper stock finished with plastic but the stock is unlike anything I have ever felt. It’s thin and extremely flexible yet very springy. The plastic coating feels like a premium plastic playing card.
Each suit features a drink recipe from Absolut vodka, with some very cool court card designs, making these a great addition to a card player’s poker game, an Absolut vodka collection or a playing card collection.
This decks springs, fans, dribbles, spreads, shuffles and yes even farrows (albeit with a little coaxing) fantastic. You can see why cardists like Dan and Dave like this deck.
