A few years ago, the US Playing Card company began making Jumbo size decks again. They are not as heavyweight as the older Jumbo card decks, so one could complain that the card stock quality is not as good as it used to be. (It isn't). These newer Jumbo decks are printed in China, and have a slightly different box design than the classic Jumbo decks.
But these newer Jumbo decks do have the advantage of being easier to handle, as they are not as bulky as the older decks. The cards are the same size 5.5 x 7 inches, but each card is on thinner stock than they used to be. And for most uses that we magicians have for Jumbo cards -- predictions, added visibility on poker deals, stand up Si Stebbins routine, etc -- these cards serve just as well as the older decks. (And easier for you and spectators to handle)
The picture shows two decks, so you can see both sides of the box. Also shown in the picture is a poker sized deck (not included) which is there to give you a sense of scale and size for these Jumbo decks.
You get one jumbo Big Box deck -- blue backed, brand new and unused.
