Unusual and, in its way, somewhat striking recent deck made for Francis Ford Coppola Winery to celebrate its Diamond Collection wines. The deck is mint and sealed. The first 2 pictures in this listing are of the actual deck for sale. The remaining pictures are from an open deck previously sold in this shop.
The Jokers depict the bottles of wine in the Collection. In each suit there are 3 types of cards: (i) those that depict bottles of Coppola wines; (ii) those that have stylized pips and reference Coppola wines; and (iii) reclining fashion models that are holding bottles of Coppola wines. The photos for this listing show two entire suits in order to convey a sense of this "inconsistency." If you visit the website for the Winery and go to its descriptions of the wines in the Diamond Collection, you will see the same fashion models. I do not know the maker of the cards.
The deck has 52 cards, plus 2 Jokers (bottles), plus a backed insert card with a few words from the Winery, plus a card that sets forth the rules for "Deal A Diamond" – to the best of my knowledge, a card game created for this deck. The cards are wide, measuring 89mm x 63mm, and come in the original box.
As noted, the cards are mint and sealed inside the box.
Thanks for visiting.
