52 Plus Joker 2017 Club Deck

Released recently at the Kentucky Convention, the 2017 Club deck designed by Alexander Chin of Seasons Playing Cards and produced by the Expert Playing Card Company, was an instant success. The fourth in an annual planned series by modern card designers, uses variations on standard courts, has a fascinating back design and comes in a spectacular tuck case with lots of bells and whistles. Details on the deck, and how Club members not in attendance can obtain it, are in the members' section of the Club website.
