Contains only 55 copies of Ace of Spades and a History of the Secret Weapon card. History from USPCC - The Ace of Spades served a famous purpose in the war in Vietnam. In 1966, two lieutenants wrote The United States Playing Card Company and requested decks containing nothing but the Ace of Spades. The cards were useful in psychological warfare as the Viet Cong were very superstitious and highly frightened by this Ace. The French previously had occupied Indo-China, and in French fortunetelling with cards, the Spades predicted death and suffering. The Viet Cong even regarded lady liberty as a goddess of death. USPC shipped thousands of the requested decks gratis to our troops in Vietnam. These decks were housed in plain white tuckcases, inscribed with Bicycle Secret Weapon. The cards were deliberately scattered in the jungle and in hostile villages during raids. The very sight of the Ace card was said to cause many Viet Cong to flee.
Conjuring Arts information: Conjuring Arts proudly introduces our new exclusive Professional Bicycle® Playing Cards to the magic community. These new Professional Bicycles® may look familiar, but they have been custom designed for discerning card handlers. They feature an unprecedented level of quality along with a handful of clever surprises. These cards are printed on the highest quality casino stock with USPCC’s finest coating. This makes for a deck that not only feels as good as cards from 10 years ago, but even better. These cards will make many common sleights easier, and certain sleights and flourishes wouldn’t be possible with any other deck. These decks are arranged similarly to the Spanish, or Fournier, order. It is a natural Stay-Stack or mirror stack and will allow those of you who use Mnemonica to get into stack more quickly than with regular Bicycles. As with our other cards, users can decide whether they prefer the feel of an Air Cushion or Ivory finish. Clever magicians will create “sorts” by mixing the two finishes together in one deck. A very powerful secret weapon from nearly a hundred years ago that has not been available for decades!
There are a total of 12 different editions of this deck. The difference is the prediction readable in the bar code.
