How are playing cards sold? Typically, they are sold in pairs (a single pair is also known as a ‘setup’). Most often a Red & Blue deck are sold together, but some manufacturer’s offer other popular color combinations too, such as Black & Gold, or Green & Burgundy. Most of the top end selections will include a sturdy storage box for safekeeping your decks, less expensive options will be packaged in a paper tuck box.
Should I buy Paper or Plastic? Good question. Chances are you grew up playing with paper cards, most of us have. Paper cards (like Bicycle brand) come with a plastic coating over the paper to give their product some extra durability. If you like the feel of paper cards, and don’t mind replacing them on a regular basis, you should probably stick with paper playing cards. Paper decks are less expensive to purchase than plastic decks. However, if you want a more durable deck of playing cards, you are likely to prefer a 100% plastic product. Plastic cards are initially more expensive than paper, but they will last many times longer than paper cards, and are likely to be less expensive in the long run. Plastic playing cards shuffle more easily, they slide along the felt effortlessly while dealing, they retain their shape better, and are completely washable if necessary. Most players agree plastic cards are more luxurious, and add a sense of elegance to their game. A two-deck plastic setup will run $12 to $28, versus $5 to $7 for paper.
