Originally unveiled on day two of Cardistry-Con in Portland, Fontaine Futures gave card enthusiasts around the world the chance to own one of six random decks of varying rarity, concealed within blind packs.
Outside of its anti-static shielding plastic pouch, the Parrot Edition is one deck within the Futures collection and features a vibrant mint-green back design with a parrot staring through the iconic Fontaine logo. Each deck includes a custom Ace of Spades, Bicycle standard court and number cards, plus an authenticity card and a parrot painting ad card!
Limited to 3,000 and printed by The United States Playing Card Company.
Founded by Zach Mueller in 2013 out of his love of old school casino decks like Wynns and Jerry's Nuggets, Fontaine was a 'just for fun' project that is now making a huge impact on the world of playing cards.
Starting with one prototype deck of Red Fontaine's, Mueller built a following by showcasing his skill as a magician on Instagram and Facebook. It didn't take long for demand for his product to build! By the time his second deck was released, Blue Fontaine, his following had grown to such an extent that the Kickstarter campaign raised over $60k. Realising this could become a full-time occupation, Zach narrowed his vision to pure cardistry and been featured in a number of viral videos, a commercial for Japan Airlines and has also collaborated with some of the world's leading artists and designers.
Zach has built a brand that is renowned amongst card enthusiasts; constantly pushing the boundaries of cardistry and people's perception of playing cards.
