| | Bicycle Playing Cards
I think Bicycle's are about thes best cards on the market. They feel so good in your hands. Air Cushion or something like that. I know a lot of people favor the KEM cards (I think also made by the same company -US Playing Card Company-) but they are too expensive. Even though they hold up better, you never get to buy a new deck...and nothing feels better than unwrapping a new deck from the plastic at the start of poker night to convince your friends that you are the mac daddy of poker hosts.
I was surprised to see that they were still made in the USA. I think its one of the few products that hasn't been outsourced.
Anyway, I get them from COSTCO where you can get a 12 pack for $12.95. So for about a buck a pack, the same price you'd pay at the dollar store for one of the cheap fall apart in your hands decks, you can get the best, and impress your friends.
