I posted this image in another thread yesterday and I'm looking to see if anyone can confirm that these are official Fournier cards. They don't appear on the Fournier website but I can see them listed on HomePokerTourney - are these perhaps old stock? I can see them for sale from Lithuania and from Germany. Anyone got any of these themselves?

I think the card experts here are Thomacetti, Milo013 and CdnBeerLover; they should be able to tell you what is currently available.

Have you tried looking in the 'Cards Review' thread to see if there is something similar there?

I have a set-up of those. Got them from CaraGail's. The designation escapes me at the moment, but they are no different than other Fourniers, which is to say a very high quality card in both appearance and manufacture. Not sure if they are available in narrow, or if that matters to you.

Caragails is blocked at work.

Unrelated wishing . . . would LOVE to see Fournier produce a high end card like a Torcello or a Platinum Acetate. I would probably never buy another type of card if they did.

Thanks. They appear to be available in red, blue, green and orange from a few places in Europe and don't come with a box which seems a little strange. I much prefer the backs on them though to either the plain red and blue or the WSOP cards.

I think the 2818 is just the face style (Jumbo, 2 pip, poker size) and applies to all similar cards.

I don't know what sites we can or can't post but you can get them from 4aces-poker (Germany), playtowin (Italy) and Shop4Top (Lithuania) and a few Russian sites. Playtowin and Shop4Top sell on Ebay. I was just unsure whether to trust cards that didn't even come boxed but they look like they're ok.

Not boxed? That seems odd. Worst I have ever seen was Modiano set-ups that sold in a cheap cardboard box with the cello-wrapped decks in this crappy plastic white tray. It's the only time I was ever annoyed buying Modianos.

Yes, the bridge size are all good. I have those Rosas in bridge size.

These are the ones I'm interested in.

I have never seen a package like that . . . 6 set-ups (12 decks) for how much? buy some clear plastic cases elsewhere and be done with it.

Is the vendor selling them individually?

Yes, you can buy decks individually. You can also buy a box of 12 decks (6 red/6 blue) for €125,00 plus shipping from Germany.

I think another seller has them at $130 plus shipping from Germany.

125 Euros for the box? That's almost 21 Euros a set-up, about $25.00 USD. That is almost what you'd pay here for Platinum Acetate Modianos. What's the shipping going to run you? Unless it is very small, I think I would explore other options, but then again, I do not know if this is the normal pricing over there.

I can't get hold of any poker-sized Fourniers for much less than £20/$32 per setup, delivered. I can get Platinum Acetates (when in stock) for $25 delivered.

Obviously I don't need these cards. I just don't have any Fournier poker-sized cards (while I do already have some Platinum Acetates).

Well, none of us need all the stuff we have . . . but it's fun to have cool stuff to show off. I say buy 'em.

I've ordered two decks of the plain-backed 2818s now, mainly because of the price. If I like them sufficiently I may move onto the 'casino' decks with no boxes in the future.

I received my decks yesterday and I was a bit disappointed. They feel very rough at the edges. I'm used to being able to a very smooth edge when the deck is together.

I compared them with my current favourite - Modiano Texas Poker - and they have a slightly bigger index and a slightly darker/more faded red. The edges of the cards are less rounded. The face cards are better than the Modianos but otherwise I prefer the Texas Poker cards hands down.
