In 2011, we released the original Monarchs. They quickly became our best-selling deck, and they ushered in a new standard for luxury playing cards. Soon after, we dressed them in red. Monarchs are back in a new print edition, with a much more vivid, vibrant red box.
Bicycle Seconds - in its essence is an expendable material for trick practicing, cardistry and other things related to card manipulations. The cards are identical to their older brothers Bicycle Standards (Rider Back), the only thing is that this is second-class cards. They may have printed defects, it is possible that the color of the paper is slightly yellower than the standard ones, but otherwise they are just as good as Standards.
