Da Vinci Playing Cards
While most of the emphasis in a poker chip set is placed on the poker chips, perhaps the most important part of any poker chip set are the playing cards.
Though most people think that all playing cards are the same, much like anything else, you get what you pay for. What most people don't know is that there are two kinds of playing cards.
The type that most people are familiar with are plastic coated paper playing cards. These are the most popular kind of playing cards as they are cheap and available everywhere from toy stores to grocery stores.
The most common brands are Bee playing cards and Bicycle playing cards. While these cards are perfectly adequate for use at home, they wear out quickly and are essentially very fragile.
Paper playing cards can tear, scratch, crease, mark, warp, and after a few uses they can become downright dirty. They are also not spill resistant, so if one playing card gets wet, the entire deck needs to be replaced on account of the change in shape and color of the wet card.
Plastic playing cards
Da Vinci plastic playing cards are the world's most elite playing cards. While paper playing cards are succeptible to the problems listed above, Da Vinci 100% plastic playing cards are not.
Da Vinci playing cards will not mark, tear, dent, scratch, crease or warp, and they are immune to spills. Da Vinci cards also slide better across poker tables and shuffle better than traditional paper playing cards. Because they are made 100% of plastic, Da Vinci playing cards are washable.
A properly cared for deck of Da Vinci playing cards can last a lifetime. Da Vinci playing cards are designed and manufactured in Italy by Modiano.
Since 1868, the Modiano brand has been synonymous with quality playing cards. Da Vinci cards are manufactured using the finest plastic and are heavier and thicker than KEM plastic playing cards and Copag plastic playing cards.
