-Poker size (especially if not shuffled by people, but rather by a machine; even a cheap one).
-4 jumbo (or almost jumbo) indexes, 4- color.
-Index colors: Light red hearts, light blue diamonds, light green clubs (to not be confused with the spades' black at any time).
-Whatever texture is non-slippery (so on the "coarse" side)
-Bendable, elastic, durable and non-warpable (so acetate, like Modiano Platinum).
-Back colors: Either light blue and pink/fuchsia or light grey and yellow/gold. Or the majestic traditional designs of Fournier (FDL etc)

The latest Desjgn bridge sized diamond back blackjack index cards are pretty much the perfect playing cards in almost every way.
As much as I agree with you I would like more red color on face cards (hearts and diamonds).
They are pretty but dark. That's why I find Faded Spade appealing despite stiffness and occasional defects reported recently.

You need a really light green for the clubs and a really light blue for the diamonds, though.
Lighting isn't ideal when peeping hole cards, and darker hues can cause confusion.
Not an issue with the community cards.
