Review: Custom Tuck Cases/Playing Card Boxes


Last week I wrote about a custom Houdini Tuck Case and ever since then I have been on the hunt for more custom/handmade tuck cases to share. Here are a few custom tuck cases that I found primarily on Etsy that would be great for any collection or as a gift. If anything they are perfect for protecting the cards we love.

Wooden Steampunk Tuck Case on Etsy

This tuck case is all wooden and uses craft materials along with various painting techniques to get the weathered look. This tuck case would be great for the Theory 11 Steampunk playing cards.

This is more for the wordworking card collector. Big enough to fit two card decks, this tuck case is all wooden made out of white oak and walnut. It also features a decorative but functional latch to keep the cards secure.

Similar to the previous tuck case this wooden tuck case only holds one deck of playing cards. However, it is unique as it hold a small pencil and a pad for game scoring. It is also held together when closed by earth magnets.

Leather Tuck Case on Esty.

This leather tuck case was all hand sewn. This is much easier to carry around than a wooden box but still protects your playing cards in a classy display.

This tuck case is one of a kind!!! It is a leather covered wooden tuck case with a floral design on the top. Unlike a lot of tuck cases that only hold two decks, this vintage tuck case holds three decks of cards.

This is an interesting find on Etsy.  Although I am not sure of the exact value associated to the playing cards that come with this case, this case would be great for any collector's 8 best decks. According to the Etsy page, this case was a corporate gift from the Iron & Steel Company, Chicago.

  2. Playing cards need to be really kept in order that it is all intact and a piece of it should not be lost. That is why having those custom boxes or tuck cases is really an excellent idea for it. The designs also shown above are wonderful.
