The Sherlock Holmes Playing Card Deck (Baker Street Edition) by Jackson Robinson
Your man here is a HUGE Sherlock Holmes fan. Back in 1989, my then-girlfriend got me The Complete Sherlock Holmes by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for a birthday present and I was hooked. Of course, when I say, “got,” I later learned that she most likely shoplifted it. Turns out, when your girlfriend asks you to pick her up from her community service, it may not be for a speeding ticket even if that’s what she claims. Yeah, that shoulda probably been a red flag. But I digress.
As a long-time fan of the world’s most famous detective, I was pretty excited to get an e-mail last week from Jackson Robinson announcing his new Kickstarter project–a Holmes-inspired playing card deck.

A few months ago, I told ya’ll about my new hobby (because can you really have too many?) of collecting playing card decks off Kickstarter. To date, I’ve backed thirteen playing card projects, ten of which have funded and I’ve even already received my first deck. Today, I’m back with a heads up on a really cool deck featuring everyone’s favorite elder gods.
Federal 52 Playing Cards by Jackson Robinson
So, I’m probably not setting off any alarms at the NSA by admitting that I like to collect stuff. I’m not saying I set out to expand my collecting horizons, but let’s face it, I’m not exactly a tough sell.
Recently, while cruising Kickstarter, I came across the Federal 52 (Part 2) playing card deck by Jackson Robinson (an example from the deck is pictured above). I think my jaw literally hung open while I perused the beautiful artwork showcased on the project page.
