In 1970, one of the most famous Las Vegas gambling halls - Jerry's Nugget Casino - produced a special deck of playing cards sold at the souvenir shop for only 50 cents a deck. 40 years later their price has surged up to $500 (and even $3,999) a piece.
Jerry's Nugget playing cards were produced in 1970s for gaming tables, but they never got to see a real game. Within a short period of time, the entire stock of these playing cards was sold out completely through a souvenir store. These decks were produced by the credible US Playing Card Company with the use of technologies presently unavailable for some unknown reasons. In addition to that, the USPCC used a special chemical cushioning for Jerry's Nugget cards, which is also presently unavailable due to its damaging effect to the environment.
As a result, in the summer of 1999, the stock of these cards was exhausted completely.
As of now, these cards are listed on Ebay at the price of $400-900 for a brand-new deck. However, there is no guarantee you will actually buy an authentic deck of Jerry's Nugget playing cards.
