When it comes to playing cards, we want ours to stand out from a visual perspective and typically gravitate towards those with a vintage vibe which is why we’ve fallen hard for these ace looking Federal 52 2nd Edition Playing Cards from one of our favourite brands, Kings Wild Project. For those who have a similar mindset when picking playing cards, these will definitely be right up your street as well.
Kings Wild Project are a subscription based brand where you can get monthly decks delivered to your door or you can purchase their visually vibrant decks individually. Their latest release is this Federal 52 2nd Edition series of playing cards and it is overflowing with historical American illustrations which will really enhance the visual impact of your card game nights.
Back to Where it Began
Almost five years ago, Kings Wild Project’s journey started as a full-time playing card designer and it all began with the original Federal 52 Kickstarter project. During that project, he designed two unique court card sets that spanned across 11 different editions in the series and he’s ventured back into the waters again with this awesome 2nd Edition which can be yours for the excellent price of just $16.
The Kings Wild Project Federal 52 2nd Edition Playing Cards ($16) is a hybrid of both the original Federal 52 court card set and artwork (something that was featured in the Federal 52, Gold Certificate, and Silver Certificate decks) and the artwork of the Reserve Note decks and this delivers an unparalleled visual impact that we’re loving here at Coolector HQ.
For this eye-catching new deck of playing cards, Kings Wild Project have taken their favourite artistic elements of the entire Federal 52 series and delivered a completely new and unique looking deck of playing cards that wouldn’t look out of place in the saloons of the Wild West. Each deck is printed by the United States Playing Card Company to exacting standards and has a tangible sense of quality to the touch.
Each of these effortlessly cool playing cards is printed on Premium Stock (which was previously known as “Bee Casino” stock) and this elevates the visuals considerably and will make this your go-to deck when you’re having a poker night with your friends. They are printed with an embossed air cushion finish and come in a tuck case which boasts foiling and embossing.
We love playing cards here at The Coolector and Kings Wild Project have rapidly become one of our favourite purveyors based upon their bold, vibrant and impeccably crafted decks – of which, this 2nd Edition Federal 52 Series is one of the finest to date. Looking for a striking new deck, this is one of the best out there.
