theory11 : hudson playing cards
Hudson Playing Cards are inspired by a real historic factory on the banks of the Hudson river in New York, dating back to 1856. The one product emerging from their assembly line was the pinnacle of playing card quality- with unrivalled quality, snap, feel, and finish, in their day Hudson Playing Cards were the gold standard for poker players and family games alike.
Thousands of decks once passed through this production line - and then, as suddenly as it emerged, the factory declined, closing in 1871 with the rise of the New York Consolidated Card Company.
The legend was lost to history - until today. With stunning illustrations designed by Dan Gretta, theory11’s Hudson deck has a rich and timeless aesthetic- with a custom ace of spades, joker, back design, and tuck case packaging.
