Every time you shuffle a deck of fifty-two playing cards, the chance that the exact arrangement you create has before existed in the history of the universe is infinitely small. Statistically speaking, the likelihood is 1 in 80,658,175,170,943,878,571,660,636,856,403,766,975,289,505,440,883,277,824,000,000,000,000! That's 52 factorial or 52 times 51 times 50... you get the idea.
Fivetwo Playing Cards by dealersgrip are built around the narrative of possibility versus arrangement and come to life through strikingly bold, minimal designs intertwined with serene nature photography.
Consistent with dealersgrip’s beliefs in experimentation, purpose and artistic depth — Fivetwo visually communicates the philosophical significance of simply handling a deck of playing cards.
Limited to 2,500 and printed by United States Playing Card Company on Premium Crushed Bee Stock.
Oliver Sogard & Tobias Levin have almost 10 years worth of cardistry experience between them. dealersgrip was born from their combined love of cardistry and is an online marketplace where students can purchase video tutorials of the duo's incredibly visual and unique cardistry moves.
In November 2016, Sogard and Levin gave us a glimpse of their first deck of cards, STRIPE.
"As a cardist your only tool is a deck of cards, so the idea of designing our own came naturally. Although it might sound cliché, we really wanted our cards to stand out. They had to both represent our style of cardistry and what we admire aesthetically. The final product would have to be something we would use every day"
Since then dealersgrip has grown in popularity and 2017 we saw the release of the pairs latest creation, BRUSH. Both decks were sell-out successes and we're set to see a lot more from these two in the future!
