Kickstarter: Kings Wild Project To Launch Federal 52 (2nd Edition) Playing Cards Today!

The concept of currency on a playing card isn't new by any means, but it was never presented in such a creatively intricate and beautifully detailed package as the Federal 52 did. Fully custom, every aspect of the cards has been touched and the theme carries itself from the back design, Ace of Spades, custom jokers, face cards and historical courts perfectly.

The Federal 52 Second Edition is the sequel we have been waiting for! Five years ago Kings Wild's founder Jackson Robinson's journey as a full-time playing card designer started with Federal 52. He designed two unique court card sets that spanned across 11 different editions in the series. According to Jackson,
The Federal 52 2nd Edition is a hybrid of both the original Federal 52 court card set and art work (that was featured in the Federal 52, Gold Certificate, and Silver Certificate decks) and the art work of the Reserve Note decks. In this edition, I have taken my favorite artistic elements of the entire Federal 52 series and created an entirely new and unique deck of playing cards.
There are two editions being offered in this campaign, the Standard Edition and Letter-Pressed Edition. The decks accentuated by meticulous and intricate details throughout with a bold back design.

The Standard Edition tuck case will have full-color printing, embossing, and hot stamped foiling and sealed with Money seal.

The Letter-Pressed Edition will be limited to 200 and the deck will be housed in tuck, hand-printed by Jackson Robinson on his 1962 Heidelberg Letter-Press "Agnes" (named after his grandmother). The inner tuck case will have full-color printing, embossing, and hot stamped foiling, on premium matte finish stock. Sealed Gold Foil Seal. The tuck will be hand signed and numbered.

Both will be printed by the United States Playing Card Co. on Bee Casino Stock (similar to the original Federal 52 series) with embossed air cushioned finish. The Federal 52 Second Edition is Scheduled to launch 19th August 7pm Central. Pledge starts at $14 and the campaign will only run for 14 days. So, don't miss out!
