The quality finish on these playing cards make them a fine alternative to the Bicycle brand and their one-way back design can come in handy, too. Decks may be blue or red - if you order an even number of each, we will attempt to ship an even amount of each color.

This deck is a personal favoirte of Newt's Dad as it has a great snap and long play.
The Squeezer’s deck history goes back into the late 1800’s. This particular deck features the 2 dogs Squeezer and Trip with the caption “There is a tie that binds us to our homes”. This commemorates the consolidation of the New York Consolidated Card Co (manufacturers of Squeezers). & the Andrew Dougherty Co. (manufacturers of Triplicates). Both Companies are now divisions of the U.S. Playing Card Co. but not really recognized anymore. This deck was first printed in 1877 with a reprint in 1927 for their 50 year anniversary and again in 1977 for their 100 year anniversary. These decks are printed now in very limited quantities and are not commonly found. USPC has already started to limit purchases and make it more difficult for merchants to purchase. As USPC has already deleted over half of its product line in 2008 and 2009, we expect that they will cut this one too.
What is the Difference between Bridge and Poker Sized Playing Cards?
Often times the size of a playing card is referred to as a "narrow" or "wide" deck of cards. While the narrow/bridge decks (2-1/4" x 3-1/2") are called "bridge" size, the wide/poker decks (2-1/2" x 3-1/2") are called "poker" sized.
FACT: BOTH sizes are usable for any normal card game as they are really just normal decks that are a different width. So it really doesn't make any difference which size deck you choose.
- It is said that the bridge sized decks were made for the "ladies" so that it was easier to hold.
- Often times the bridge or narrow sized decks do make it easier to hold more cards in your hand.
- In the U.S. the "poker" sized are considered the "normal" size.
- In pretty much the rest of the world, the "bridge" sized cards are considered the "normal" size.
Again, please remember that you can use the "bridge" or "poker" sized decks for pretty much any card game. The only difference is one is a 1/4" narrower than the other.
Some times we offer various other "sizes" of playing cards. They may be "enlarged" or larger than normal decks or they may also be smaller than normal decks.
Another varience on the "size" would be what we call "shaped" cards. The shaped cards have taken various shapes over the years and change in popularity. They do offer a nice change of pace to a normal deck of cards.
