Ready Stock Orbit V7 Playing Card
LIMITED EDITION: Will NOT be reprinted.
Welcome back guys! Chris here. Welcome to the seventh edition. Orbits are going 80's. For this edition, the crew and I sat down and reviewed a lot of 80's art to come to this final design. We missed clean borders and wanted something more minimal than the V6 but still with the element of intricacy within some part of it.
The V7 features a pink dominant center along with the mountain range from the V5 Orbits that are now inverted, so they are a window to what's behind the card rather than the original mountains. Upon close inspection, constellations can be seen in the star belt.The rainbow at the bottom of the box inside the Orbit logo is a direct tribute to the lives lost in the 1986 space shuttle Challenger on their mission STS-51-L.
Pips and indices. I knew I wanted a retro design that people would have been using in the 80's. I asked USPC if they had the retro Arrco pip package. Their archives didn't go back that far.
New Court faces. We have added 3 new faces. The Queen of Clubs is my childhood best friend's mom, Nancy. I've known her since I was 11 and she is like a second mom to me. The King of Clubs is her husband, Matt (Big Matt). They have been there for me during some pretty important moments in my life and have guided me through some tough times. They deserve to be here in the deck. The final card is the King of Spades, none other than my mentor in magic, John Bodine. John has kept me headed in the right direction in my magic career, is a life mentor to me, and even invested in the my website to get it up on its own two feet back in 2012. Not sure I'd be where I am today without him in my corner.
