Rock ‘n Roll Playing Cards
by Hero Decks
Hero Decks are a great way to show off your fandom of various sports teams or other pop culture icons. I recently received a deck of “Rock ‘n Roll” playing cards, featuring caricatures of some of the biggest names in the history of rock: Ozzy Osbourne, Axl Rose, Gene Simmons (in full makeup and costume), Bruce Springsteen and more. The artist Mike Graessle does a great job of capturing each rocker’s likeness and even attitude and mannerisms in his work.
This deck is certainly a playable, standard-sized poker set with 54 cards (including two Jokers). On the other hand, it can be displayed as a collectible keepsake, each card featuring a different musical icon. I know of some who have used the sports-themed cards for autographs and keep them in a binder in nine-pocket pages. While not all of the subjects are still living, for those that are, Hero Deck cards are wonderful alternative to standard sports cards for signatures.
Whether you are looking for a new deck of cards with which you can play Go Fish or Gin Rummy, or just want a new collectible that is unique, check out Hero Decks. There are a number of MLB, NFL, NHL, and NCAA teams available, as well as non-sport issues for the Marines, Black America, Hooray for Hollywood, and more.
