Gambit, an Ante Upper, told me he bought some of the Modiano cards from what turns out to be my favorite place to shop for poker stuff: Flaming Frog Poker in Indianopolis, IN. I think it's time to get an affiliate code from them, don't you?
With my well documented card fetish that meant just one thing:
TIME TO ORDER SOME CARDS!
While I was perusing the site I saw the usual cards but then these caught my eye.
Snuff says the 4 pip cards make him want to hurl.
Obviously he has no taste :P.
These cards actually sound more like paper cards to me than even paper cards do. The texture is very pleasant - not the least bit plasticky. The black is deep and rich. The red is somewhat muted on the 4 pip decks but quite vibrant on the regular decks. The graphics are very clean and crisp. For the price ($15/set of two decks) they are very nice and much cheaper than Copags or Kems.
