A Playing Card Deck That Celebrates The Secrets Of World War Two
The United States Playing Card Company joined forces with American and British intelligence agencies in World War Two to produce a special deck of cards to help Allied prisoners of war escape from a prisoner of war camps inside of German-occupied territory. As time went on it became known as the “Map Deck” as it held maps of top-secret escape routes inserted between two paper layers inside the playing cards.
When soaked in water, the card could be peeled apart and the hidden map extracted. This way of smuggling maps and messages into and out of occupied territory remained a guarded secret throughout the war and for many years after.
This is a replica deck that looks very much like the original top secret deck of playing cards. Though you won’t find any secret maps or special decoder rings.
A Historical Deck That Deals, Shuffles & Fans As Expected
While this is a limited edition deck of cards meant to appeal to historians and card collectors, it is still a very functional deck of cards. It has an air-cushioned finish and feels like a standard deck in your hands. It will shuffle, deal and fan just like a practice deck, which can be a factor for a performer who wants to add a little bit of history to their act.
