The Finest Marked Deck We've Ever Created
They say that good design is appealing... but has no story - When it does, we call it art.
That's exactly what Pioneers are. They're so much more than a vintage-inspired deck. They are art.
The tuck box is constructed of exquisite laid card, capturing the texture of period-accurate paper. Debossed in all the right places, to create a 4th dimension of quality.
Pioneers are a celebration of exploration, scientific discovery, and innocent curiosity from a bygone era.

Love the quality as always…
The Pioneer playing cards have a great feel and the design is very timely. Will probably order some more - I love the markings and they're printed by USPCC. HIghly recommended!
I'm super impressed with the artwork on these cards, and they feel great too!
Smooth finish, great look, good to read marking - what more do you want? ;-)
These cards look absolutely wonderful. They feel great in the hands. The back design is nicely made so layman won’t find anything. A great deck worth investing in.
Well this is a beautiful deck the markings are a bonus I hardly ever use them but I do find myself always looking to see the value and suit chosen and it’s a safety net for ACR. I love the art work and the pips are great.
Love these cards, had to order another half brick as soon as I got them open. They feel great (E7 stock, duh) easy to read markings in all four corners as well as a one way marking system that I didn't even see mentioned anywhere.
Red deck comes with red double backer and misindexed card (2H with 3S).
Blue deck comes with red/blue double backer and same misindexed card as red deck.
Jokers are non matching in both decks.
Welcome to my first ever playing card deck review. I must confess from the start, I am a collector, and as such, I do not break the seals on my acquisitions. Therefore I won’t be commenting on the playability or handling of the cards themselves. Regardless, I absolutely love the throwback to the old world design of this set. Yes, this is a set of two decks in complimentary red and blue color schemes. And in keeping with the times — the times being 1893 — the colors are muted and flat, not glossy. The tuck case paper stock is also period, nicely embossed but no slick finish. The overall design theme is that of an 1893 Chicago Worlds Fair souvenir packet of playing cards. The postage stamp type seal is also reminiscent of the era. The two-way back design depicts a mirrored fan flourish adorned with the image of three sailing ships. These ships commemorating the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s voyage to the “New World”. This deck is aptly named “Pioneers” for those who dared to board the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria bound for an unknown land across the vast Atlantic in 1492. I’m proud to own this very handsome pair. Well done, EPCC. 😊
This is a nicely marked deck, with easy to read markings and printed on nice stock. The back design is intricate and allows for the system to hide well. Includes a two-color double backer and gaff.
I love this deck, I think it's one of my favorite decks,
