Bicycle Playing Cards Celebrate 130 Years!

The classic Bicycle brand has been making decks of cards in the US for 130 years! Hard to believe that this iconic brand started manufacturing playing cards when Grover Cleveland was president and women wouldn’t have the right to vote for another 35 years. At Toy Fair ’15, I discovered that Bicycle cards are not just the basic red and blue decks anymore. There are commemorative decks and themed decks for almost every charity and hobby imaginable. Commemorative decks are being issued for the 130th Anniversary, the Civil War (with artwork by Jackson Robinson), decks for the Wounded Warrior Project, pink ribbon campaign and even funny themes like Zombie and Big Foot.

Check out the many themes available. You’ll find a great birthday or holiday gift for that hard-to-buy-for person in your life. Playing card games is a great family activity!
