Deck of Cards

Do you know someone that loves card games such as Blackjack or Poker? If so, then you should put this unique deck of cards on your Christmas list, if they have been good the entire year.

The most expensive deck of cards available for purchase is etched in stainless steel! When they are received they are in one large steel sheet which is so magnificent you may wish to hang them on the wall instead of press them out to play a game of cards.

The price for these awesome playing cards is a whopping £195 or $351.00 USD.

The highest price paid for a deck of cards at auction was $143,352.00 by the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City.

On December 6, 1983 the Metropolitan Museum of Art purchased a deck of cards from around 1470-85 which are believed to be the oldest known complete hand-painted deck.
