Formed in 1965, the Grateful Dead became a cultural institution that has spanned for over half a century. Fusing rock and roll, folk and jazz with avant-garde, visual and literary traditions - they become one of the most popular, enduring and influential bands in American history.
Printed using antique letterpress machines dating back to the 1960's, Grateful Dead's tuck case is constructed from six layers of vibrant colour, embossed for a tactile sensation and then sealed with a custom sticker which features the Stealie skull.
The back design encapsulates iconic imagery that Dead Heads have come to know and love over the decades, with terrapins playing their tune and dancing bears swinging to every note. Aces include stunning full-art designs, complete with logos and mascots that are cemented in the band's history and can be found throughout this completely custom deck.
