Final Days on Kickstarter. The Three Stooges Deck!

Currently being funded on Kickstarter, with less than 5 days remaining... The Three Stooges Deck! Whispering Imps Production and Kings Wild Project have teamed up to make available The Three Stooges officially Licensed, fully custom, luxury playing cards.

More than a year in the making and now available to fans, enthusiasts, and collectors are a series of completely custom, hand-illustrated decks commemorating American vaudeville and comedy legends, The Three Stooges.

After an unsuccessful attempt in 2017, the team has reworked the original concept. According to the project page,
After exploring many different color options, we settled on what felt most appropriate for the deck as a whole. The black and white (with a tint of grey) design you see below only seemed fitting really since this is how The Three Stooges were first were seen on the big screen.

As the original kings of laughter, the team felt it was important to acknowledge just how HUGE these three comedy legends were.
The best way to reflect that into the design was to incorporate the regal, ornamental elements you see in the background and the border with the iconic imagery of The Three Stooges faces often depicted in various forms of their logo.

Traditionally the Ace of Spades is the most decorated card in the deck, and The Three Stooges sticks with that tradition by incorporating the Spade with the ornamental elements of the back artwork and The Three Stooges logo. One of the most exciting design elements in this deck is the unique opportunity to represent and incorporate ALL of The Stooges in the 12 custom court cards.

The Tuck Box has been updated to really give that vintage Three Stooges vibe. The bright and colorful logo jumps out on the grey background of the tuck.
While the intricate artwork was saved for the back of the playing cards, we made the tuck art very bold, clean and crisp allowing most of the attention to be on the Three Stooges® themselves. There was always a fun and quirky elegance to their slapstick comedy, and that's what we tried to represent here with the tuck... similar to the opening title card in an old movie.

The Three Stooges custom playing card series will be printed by the United States Playing Card Company. Pledge starts from $12 for a single deck on Kickstarter!
