Faking Cards Set: Stolen Art For Fake Playing Cards Now With More Bullets! Empty Faking Cards Set: Stolen Art For Fake Playing Cards Now With More Bullets!

How about some fake playing cards?
The art is obviously all stolen from some poor fan artist out there who has quite a certain style. The box has G3s on it, but the art is all G1. I've never really seen a whole set of fake anything before. I do like the art, it seems soft and sparkling somehow, so it is very too bad it was all stolen and the person likely never got a dime.

So who do we have here?
Ace - Countdown
2 - Minty
3 - Black Coach Hearse (A black horse pulls the black hearse carriage)
4 - Tropical Breeze
5 - Galaxy
6 - Killer Tip? Ammo Prancer? (The symbols are hollow-point bullets, shotgun shells & crossbow arrows with hollow cores to spill the blood)
7 - Gusty
Joker - That Euro 'Majesty' who has the stars
8 - Sorbet
9 - Rapunzel
10 - Starflower
Jack  Mimic
Queen - Blue Rose
K Yellow Moondancer

These 'extra' ponies are likely stolen fanchars or ponysonas, probably commissioned by that artist as they're also in the style. What likely happened is the fakers raided the gallery, and couldn't tell which ponies were real characters & which were fan. But still...you'd think they'd want to avoid ol' Bullet Betsy there or whoever that was...because she's too similar to Gusty on the 7 (though she has a gray stripe) while Hearse probably is Medley like.

What do you think of these cards?
Have you seen them before?
I would buy a deck that had authentic art & was a licensed item. There are enough G1s to have a different pony on each card.

Amazing! I think that work is by Marco in Italy? I didn’t even look at the cards before I handed you the bag. Super cool. I think Wiggles found them at some market In Asia.

Sad about it being stolen. It’s been very common with his art unfortunately. I’ve seen diary’s and notepads with his work on taobao and AliExpress in the past too.
