My favorite type of playing cards are Bee no.92, blue back. They have no borders and a pattern of mesmerizing diamond shapes on their backs. They aren't great for doing some magic tricks but for playing euchre, you can't get much better than the Bees. I especially like their Ace of Spades.
Here is a website put together by Bob Lancaster of some really interesting cards. Looks like he was really good at updating until about 2003. But the interface is pretty cool and he's got all sorts of interesting cards. My favorite is the Snoopy deck. The joker is Snoopy as a juggler. Anyone who has seen my other blog (Just Your Average Joggler) knows my affinity for juggling.
Tonight is league night and the last day of the regular season. I think we've made the playoffs but a win tonight would be key. It would also give us a good seed so I'm really hoping for good cards and great playing.
