Classic and timeless design. A unique part of Bicycle’s history.
The Heritage Design Series includes four historic back designs: Acorn, Lotus, Nautic, and Automobile No. 2. This set of four is featured in a vintage banknote-style bag made from 100% natural and biodegradable jute twine.
LOTUS BACK - Originally produced in 1891, this design has intricate architecture and floral elements that interweave across the back design. Printed in Blue.
NAUTIC BACK - Originally produced in 1919, Nautics are one of our all time favorite playing card designs. Intricate, elegant, and extremely detailed. Printed in Green.
ACORN BACK - Originally produced in 1891, Acorn Backs were one of the very first playing cards produced by The United States Playing Card Company. Printed in Brown.
AUTOMOBILE No.2 BACK - Originally produced in 1913, this automotive design is a respectful nod to Henry Ford and the world's first cars. Printed in Red.
