Finally, after almost a year of working on this (hence the hilarious 2022 on the top flap of the tuck box), OATH STANDARD PLAYERS is ready.
We are very proud of this release as it represents one of the finest printing jobs we’ve done so far and one of the few times that my perfectionism had no comments to make after leaving the press...
It is also the best handling deck we have released up to date.
There are two color variants available:
NAVY BLUE and BURGUNDY.
We have printed 1500 decks of each variant.
These colors will never be reprinted and once they're gone, they're gone forever.
The deck features an enhanced version of our OATH standard courts, with gold metallic inks on the faces and backs.
SILVER PLAYERS will be actually the Arabesque Blue Players edition deck with inverted metallics both on the faces and back. It will also have a double backer and inverted foils on the tuck case, which will be printed on silver pearlescent stock. Heh, we're talking about A LOT of silver!
ARABESQUE is a luxury deck of playing cards inspired by the splendor of the famous Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. There is incredible detail and intricacy in the decorative elements found on every wall and column of that palace. Literally every inch is carved but despite the insane amount of ornamentation, the place has a serene balance. For the Player's edition, we are replacing the gold and silver foils with our very bright Gold and Silver metallic inks. It's the next best thing for a luxury touch on a deck intended for the demanding player, card enthusiast and collector.
