Deck View: Golden Spike (Gold Edition) Playing Cards



Railroad. Historic. Elegant.

Golden Spike Playing Cards are inspired by the completion of the first Transcontinental Railroad connecting the east to the west and revolutionized transportation and commerce in a post Civil War United States. A Golden Spike was created as a commemorative piece to celebrate the completion of the railroad and was driven into the ground where the Union Pacific met the Central Pacific Railroad at Promontory Point, Utah.

Designed by Jody Eklund, the Golden Spike deck has been illustrated using a cross hatch technique to mimic the style of engraving and lithographs that were common to the time period. Each card has been carefully researched and each illustration meticulously refined. Each court card is the face of a key player in the event and can be a mini history lesson in who’s who in the building Transcontinental Railroad.
