These Sherlock Holmes inspired decks were officially licensed by the Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Estate; which means creator Jackson Robinson has used this opportunity to create three unique and spectacular tributes to the original material. Each pack has a completely different look and feel, with something for the dedicated Holmes fan and something for the casual game players.
The Baker Street Edition
The Baker Street Edition is the perfect deck for any Sherlock Holmes fan. The Baker Street Edition features an intricate back design that includes iconic elements from many of the beloved stories. The court cards for the Baker Street Edition are inspired by the original late 19th & 20th century engravings and illustrations that were released with Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novels and short stories.
The Baker Street Edition tuck case features premium paper stock with embossing and Gold foiling. The tuck case is printed both on the inside and out. The playing cards inside are USPC Aristocrat Paper Stock with an embossed magic finish. The Baker Street Edition will also come with a custom 221B Tuck Seal in honor of Sherlock Holmes' home in London.
