One of the many colored-FACE decks that Magic Makers convinced US Playing Cards (who manufacturer Bicycle cards) to print for magicians. This one has Green background faces, with white spades and clubs, and red hearts and diamonds. The back of the cards is the familiar Rider design, but in green backs. NOTE: this deck is from the "First Generation" of colored face decks. The 2nd generation decks had reversed "photo-negative-style" backs, and so they did not look like "regular" Bicycle cards from the back.
Besides just using the deck for any of your card effects, because it looks so different, my favorite effect is to do a startling color change of a heart or diamond pip card from standard white face background to green!
This deck is what Magic Makers call First generation, since the second release of the deck had reverse (negative) printed backs and box. This earlier "1st Gen" version is not easily found anymore. In fact, my online search could not turn up a single reference to these earlier deck, although the 2nd Gen decks are quite common.
Deck is still sealed and in brand new condition.
