"Collecting at its best is very far from mere acquisitiveness; it may become one of the most humanistic occupations, seeking to illustrate by the assembling of significant reliques, the march of the human spirit in its quest for beauty." - Arthur Davison Ficke
The classic, prestigious, Bicycle® Collectors deck highlights Elite's passion for perfection by combining creativity and distinction with the use of noble materials. The play of light on the antique gold foil, the precious embossing, and the soft velvety texture of the deck make this limited edition a true collectors item.
Drawing inspiration from the fine art of collecting playing cards, the elegant and refined details of the Bicycle® Collectors deck are accented by foiled and embossed elements and sealed with a limited edition, precison printed seal.
With its sheer mastery of exceptional detail and expressive aesthetics, the Bicycle® Collectors deck is a product of patient, meticulous work. Every single card is handcrafted.
Immediately distinguishable, the contemporary deep guilloché reinterprets the eternal flows of nature and the endless cycle of creation.
Like a fragment of history unscathed through time, the intricate detail of the faces and backs when combined with the harmony of the soft coating and linen textured stock, are timeless.
The Bicycle® Collectors deck offers a rare conjunction of striking design, premium materials and superb performance.
