Tavern on the Green Playing Cards Rare Deck by Theory 11 Luxury
Originally designed by Calvert Vaux, Tavern on the Green was built as a sheep fold in the 1880’s to house 700 Southdown sheep. The building was transformed into a restaurant in 1934 as part of a park renovation by Robert Moses. Reopened in 2014, the restaurant paid homage to their roots with inviting décor and wood paneling reminiscent of the original sheep fold.
All Green and Gold
It’s only fitting that these limited edition Tavern on the Green Playing Cards pay homage to this storied history. Shielded in green and gold foil, Tavern on the Green Playing Cards feature the most intricate details on a tuck case we’ve ever produced - inside and out - every detail shines. Exquisite embossing and ultra-rich foil create an aura that only belongs to Tavern.

These cards are amazing for many, many uses. I mainly use them for poker nights with my friends and with their bold eye catching design, they suit well for a classy evening. The tuck case is a wonderful mix of dark green and gold foil. The cards themselves have custom Aces for each suit. As well as custom court cards which progress in a neat little class progression for the designs depicted.
All the cards have two toned custom suit pips of black/red and gold. On the court cards and Aces it has two different metallic gold inks. One a darker, deeper gold and the other a highlighted more silver or bright gold (the same gold on the suit pips.) All in all a great deck to purchase! Limited stock though as Theory 11 are no longer in stock on their website.
Tuck case - As you see in the pictures, the tuck case is gorgeously embossed with a meticulous and intricate design on every side, even going so far as to have a clover design in metallic gold ink on the inside on that deep green background. The stamp is simple and elegant. Absolutely eye-catching to anyone that catches a glimpse. One drawback is that with use the tuck case may bloat a little and the top may no longer close properly.
The deck: I have played around with this deck a fair amount and the cards still slip like it just came out of the box, fans like nothing else, thin and light, yet durable, the best deck I have gotten my hands on so far. Back design is subtle, faces are interesting and fresh, I would expect nothing less from theory 11 and would snag a few bricks if I could.
