    Hi,

    I've found my grandpa's bezique decks and couldn't believe that they stand in such good conditions since 1949... :shocked:
    Wanted to share.. Sorry for bad shootage, couldn't find my pro cam's cable :razz:

    I'm very excited of their durability.. I never had a Kem before, I always use Naipes Fournier but after seeing the condition of these cards, I ordered b&g arrow from Amazon.. Hope all decks have same quality..

    Oh No!! Can you cancel the order?? You are going to be extremely disappointed! The KEMs you have now are much better quality than the current KEMs. They went downhill after the US Playing Card Company bought them out.

    I have those exact same cards and they have a severe warping problem. Check out this thread:

    I would cancel if at all possible.

    I tried but I cannot... I can change my order with anything same value.. Only alternative is Copag.. I turned to Copag, dunno how it is, nowhere here sells Copag, but I read some posts comparing with Kem, looks like a better choice, I hope.. :huh:

    I'll take Zero, Modiano, Del Negro, and Copags over KEM. In that order.

    You may like KEMs if you can get over the warping.

    I had Modiano Da Vinci Route before.. They were great and had beautiful back design but some "wise" friends broke while suffling.. I wish I've ordered Modiano but
    the Kems I have charmed me.. Anyway, hope Copag will last long..
