Our thoughts on the Bicycle Playing Cards
Bicycle playing cards are the standard by which other paper cards are judged. Bicycle cards have been around for awhile and they are quite affordable. They are similar to the Bee cards but Bicycle cards are more well known. They are not as durable as plastic cards like KEMs or Copags but they are also a lot less expensive.
Bicycle Cards go back over 100 years. In the 1880s bicycles were getting popular in America. This was a time in which cycling — on unicycles, bicycles, and tricycles were very popular. During this time, Russell & Morgan, the forerunners of the United States Playing Card Company, decided to produce a line of cards of the highest quality. They settled on the name Bicycle after asking employees to come up with a name. The printer, "Gus" Berens, came up with the "Bicycle" name. His idea caught on, and the Rider Back made its debut in 1887. The Bicycle brand has grown since then introducing dozens of different designs. Fortunately the Rider Back has never gone out of production.
