One of our all time favorite movies that we make as a mandatory for new hires to watch before coming onto the Gadgets 4 Guys staff is Maverick. Is it because we think Mel Gibson is a nice guy that teaches people to love each other? Absolutely not but the movie and his character in it were iconic (maybe more than the original). He maintained a level of calmness and smart remarks that made every guy envious. He was also pretty good at hustling people in what of the ultimate guy games to play in Poker.
There is something about Poker that appeals to the adventurous side of every guy and being scared that you might lose or win it all in one hand. Lady Luck is often times a very dark lady that leaves us crying into a whiskey glass as the bartender tells us our credit card has just been declined. We think that there should be a deck to match that dark side of poker and Cool Material decided to do it. They have created a deck of cards that are colored in all black and look pretty darn cool. If Nike was given the go ahead to create a deck of cards like they do for the Oregon Ducks jerseys, this might be the deck that they create. You can actually own this awesome deck of cards without having to try and get Nike sponsorship.
While $10 on a deck of playing cards seems a little steep, we all usually buck up and spend $150 on a poker chip set and then buy a $1 deck of cards that fall apart after two hands. If you pulled out that fancy poker chip set and followed it up with these awesome all black cards, you could actually make your friends a tad bit jealous.
