After a weekend of Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness, Ellusionist released a new deck today that is inspired by the 1960's advertising era called Pressers Playing Cards. In fact, Ellusionist has gone as far as to say that the deck is "one of Don and Roger Sterling's favorite sets of playing cards" and "is the talk of Sterling Cooper." For those unaware, Sterling Cooper is the fictional advertising agency from the popular AMC show Mad Men.
Pressers were teased earlier in the Fall by members of the Ellusionist team but the deck was not released for sale until today with no prior "warning." The deck was first made available to Ellusionist's Black Club earlier this afternoon and then later released to the masses after the Black Club had first grabs.
According to Ellusionist, Pressers were printed on soft luxe paper. Printed by the United States Playing Card Company, the Pressers feature an antique look and simplistic design that "glides like air!" It is not known if the Pressers are a limited or unlimited release.
