This is one of those products that is hard to say a lot about, but here goes:

First of all the quality is typical of Bicycle - it is printed on the same stock that you are used to. It fans and spreads easily and if you do Faro work, these Faro pretty easily right out of the box.

To be completely honest my first impression of the cards right out of the box were that the faces were much prettier than the back design. In my opinion, the backs could have been blank and these would still be a pretty deck.

The stained glass look is sort of reminiscent of some late works of Tiffany. There are lots of bright colors on these cards on both front and back, but I think the hues on the faces are a bit softer and more elegant.

This deck would not be well-suited for magical use because though the faces are nice to look at, spectators would probably have a hard time discerning the suits and values without taking a longer look at them.

As far as collecting goes, if you like to collect decks I suspect that you might like this one too. It certainly has a unique look that sets it apart from most other decks out there.

Manufacturer's Description:

Enjoy the beauty of sunshine through colored glass? Well you are in luck! Introducing The Bicycle Stained Glass Deck. The moment you set eyes on this deck birds will sing and love will fill the air. We stayed true to the colors that have graced ages of stained glass throughout time. A lot of time was put into each card making sure each one was masterfully crafted. We covered the tuck case in bits of glass and centered the holy symbol to card enthusiast, The Spade.

The back card is like looking at the glass in a church. The circular design acts as a kaleidoscope and really sets the tone for the whole deck. It also looks great fanned.

The court cards bring a new meaning to holy. HOLY MOLY! When have you ever seen this type layout? A ton of great colors that looks like sunlight is seeping through.

The Jokers are there to make you feel good and that's just what they do. A nice smile and a wave to greet you as you chose the rarest card in the deck.
