2011 WSOP KEM/Bicycle Playing Card Set
Poker enthusiasts will love this 2011 World Series of Poker playing card set. A must-have for any collector, these are the very same cards used by all WSOP players who participated in the tournament at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas. The same cards Germany’s Pius Heinz used when he took home $8.7 million and the coveted bracelet at just 22 years of age.
Manufactured by the United States Playing Card Company and branded by Bicycle, these KEM cards are made from 100 percent acetate plastic, which lasts longer, shuffles better, and deals so fluidly you’ll never want to play with another paper or vinyl card ever again.
Each set contains one red and one black deck, comes packaged in a sturdy, black World Series of Poker collector’s box, and is sealed for authenticity with a red U.S. Playing Cards label.
So What are KEM Cards?
KEM Plastic Playing Cards have been around for more than 60 years. They were originally manufactured by the KEM Card Company, but that company was bought out by the United States Playing Card Company in 2004.
Every KEM card is made from 100 percent cellulose acetate plastic. KEM plastic playing cards contain no vinyl, which is the raw material used by all other playing card manufacturers for their plastic playing cards. KEM Plastic Playing Cards are the only playing cards in the world manufactured from cellulose acetate.
KEM cards can handle wear and tear. KEM’s high performance cards will last longer, shuffle better and deal in such a manner that you will never want to play with anything else again.
KEM Plastic Playing Cards last longer than other plastic cards and, more than 100 times longer than paper cards. In addition, KEM Plastic Playing Cards will not warp or stick together as many other cards will.
A status symbol to some, KEM plastic playing cards are the world's most desired playing cards. KEM plastic playing cards look different and feel different from other standard playing card brands.
Although KEM plastic playing cards require a more substantial initial investment than paper or vinyl playing cards, KEM plastic playing cards are the least expensive of the three options on a per-play basis.
KEM playing cards are ideal for blackjack, poker, Caribbean Stud, bridge, pinochle and any array of other games. We've heard hundreds of stories from loyal customers who purchased their first set of KEM cards decades ago and are still using those same cards in their games today. Take care of your KEM Cards and they will take care of you!
