Deck View: Blue Ribbon 323 Rosette Back Reprint


Reproduction. Retraced. Instricate.

This reproduction of Blue Ribbon 323 playing cards by Aethan Friday is based on an iconic vintage deck from the Blue Ribbon brand started by Willis W Russell in 1907. The decks are often associated with the Aristocrat brand originated by the American Banknote Company. However, USPC discontinued the brand including the Aristocrats in the 1990s.

Aethan revived the rosette backs of the Blue Ribbon in September 2018 with a successful crowdfunded campaign on Kickstarter. The deck comes with a custom ace, jokers and standard pips and USPC courts. The intricate "bank note" style card backs have been meticulously retraced by hand and the red and blue colors of the rosette backs are exceptionally striking.

Aethan's done an incredible job getting the decks to be as close to the originals as possible. Printed by the United States Playing Card Co., on crushed stock. Available now for $10 on blueribbon323.com. For more cool decks, check out jpgamesltd.co.uk.
