Built to Last Grateful Dead Playing Cards. not sure of the age or year put out, or the quantity of decks manufactured, I am fond of them, and they are fun!!

    Hi Sunny Jean76:
    According to the interwebs, the artwork for these was created by someone named C.D. Kelach in 1989. Half the band's songs from the early '70s seem to be about card games and gamblers, so I guess it makes sense. ;-)

    GREAT cards! GREAT artwork! Very cool find.

    What I'm wondering, is are these the cards from "dead in a deck", the box set with a CD album Built to last, or are these a "side show" item

    Thanks so much for the feedback, way cool. its good to know who the artist is.
