      Hey everyone,

      Just spotted these over at quicker then the eye at $450:

      https://quickerthantheeye.com/p/playing-card-decks/Jerry_s_Nugget_Casino_Playing_Cards_Red-6955

      A bit too much in my opinion, but if you’re on the hunt – This is a good shot at owning an authentic deck of Jerry’s Nugget Playing Cards!

      Cheers,
      Aron

      That is indeed way to much for jerry’s without celophane and with smudges.

      Still available as of now… I wonder if it will sell cause indeed, it doesn’t look that good.

      Cheers,

      it’s too expensive for a deck without cellophane.

      Only the cellophane makes the deck worth the big price.

      At this price, you might be better off copping the one at Conjuring arts before it ran out.

      @nick I love Conjuring Arts! The founder is actually a member of this site 🙂

      Perhaps he can shed some light on the Mini Bricks? 🙂 (he doesnt check in often but who knows)

      Cheers,

      Second what nick said.  If you want a sealed wrapped red deck of JN Conjuring Arts has a deck + 5 other ($20-$50) decks for $449.

      Honestly I think $450 is a fair price right now.  JN’s do fluctuate pretty highly on eBay though.

      $450 without cellophane ? i think that is really expensive

      I’ve just sold a brand new, perfectly new red JN for $360 .. People weren’t fighting for the auction .. maybe American people are afraid to buy from French guy 🙂   The Swedish buyer should be happy

      I wish this forum had existed before selling it .. Now I’m keeping the other ones for a moment 🙂

      Between us CPC’ers…

      I work closely with Conjuring Arts. The red mini brick included a bicycle and bee deck from their private collection which, in my opinion, are far better and rarer then the JN’s 🙂

        I’m waiting for that brick from grandma Johnson somewhere in the middle of nowhere who bought them just before (insert french guy’s name here) walked in 😛

        Lol right! I feel the same way, I want to go rummage thru some antique shops in vegas, just in hopes of finding a jerry stashed somewhere, or even better a brick of them just sitting in the corner. I would have to much fun hunting for cards in vegas.

        You never know what you could run into at an antique shop or estate sale ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      That would be amazing to do but sadly I live in North Carolina where we don’t have many card related things and the antique shops here very rarely have playing cards at all

      Yea I should go check out some estate sales but like I said the antique shops here almost never have cards. I’ve been to a good few. We literally have zero magic shops in this state either

      The problem with JNs is that some of the ways to really tell if they are real is if you open them up. I agree that decks really retain their value if they are still sealed, but if you don’t open up the JNs, they might be fake! (See: http://www.leeasher.com/playground/articles/how_to_spot_fake_jerrys_nugget_playing_cards.html). That is why I asked Conjuring Arts for a COA when I bought their mini-brick deal!

        @zompetti Working closely with Conjuring Arts myself (I do their main website and recently re-developed and re-designed their store) I can GUARANTEE the Jerry’s from them are 100%, unmistakingly and undoubtedly genuine.

        I might also add that the way their specific decks are stored might be the best around, and could potentially be the most prestine Jerry’s Nuggets in circulation.

      Joseph,
      You are right about the fact that it is more difficult to spot fake Jerry’s Nugget with a sealed box.
      But as I have made a nice page with (as far as i know) all ways to spot copies, we have some ways to do it. And I have never seen (or heard of) fake ones that copy all details of real decks

      My page :

      Jerry’s Nugget, fake or real ?

      The stamp tip #23 (even if Lee Asher doesn’t really agree with me) is for me the best way to be sure it is true.

      @fredv That is the page I used prior to purchasing my deck. It was extremely helpful. I can’t thank you enough for that. I was so happy to be armed with all those tips to inspect the deck I was considering buying. It passed the muster on all accounts and I finally got to add a sealed deck of JNs to my collection.

        Hello Patrick,
        I’m really really happy that my web page has been able to help you 🙂
        It is the result of several years of collecting cards and working closely with Lee Asher (I have also worked with him about the goldennuggetplayingcards.com site which is the reference about these cards)

        You know, I’m a collector of real Jerry’s Nugget decks but also of fake decks as well. And I must admit that it is very difficult to find really good fakes. Fake Jerry’s Nugget decks are not a legend but I have never seen fake ones that really look like the real ones. People should not be so afraid about buying a fake one because they are not easy to find (except the ones sold in magic shops which are really easy to define as fakes).

        Only one day when I started collecting, somebody sold me 2 real fakes. I had the chance to have bought one real deck before and I was able to say that they were fakes. These ones were only created to fool people : cards were awful but the box color was yellowish to mimic old deck and several tips were ok. But I have never seen again such fakes.. (on my website they are the Fake #1)

        Oh yes, there is another time when I thought I had found a new fake : when somebody on eBay sold a strange Jerry’s Nugget deck with a sticky stamp from the eighties. It could not be true but it appeared that it was probably a real small production of new Jerry’s Nugget .. at least that’s what Lee explained in a Card Culture magazine. Somebody bought it and try to sell it for $3000 a few days after .. I wish I had bought it instead of saying it was a bad fake 🙂
