+1, the back design looks phenomenal, very aesthetically pleasing.  But I'm thinking the courts will be of a standard nature.

Really weird name, but the back design is quite awesome. Based on other Blaine decks, I would be confident in saying the faces will be very standard. Still, I'll have to get a couple.

The spot cards will probably be standard but the court cards of Blaine decks have been custom haven't they? I happen to have his Split Spades Silver Edition on me and those are custom and if I remember correctly, his White Lions also had custom courts.

Only some of the faces on the court cards are custom, depicting himself and several other people. Everything apart from their faces are standard USPCC courts.

Similar to the Rounders, the only court on the Split Spades Silver Edition is the Jack of Diamonds. My White Labels are all in a box at home so I can't check them but I think 11/12 would be considered most. And yes, everything else is standard other than the court faces but I very much prefer that because if you weren't paying attention (an very inexperienced), you wouldn't even notice they were any different from standard USPCC courts.

  • You only go around once - spin hard as you can!
I notice on his sale site (new as of a few days ago) they are described as "Gatorback Riders" as opposed to "Gatorbacks".  I suppose the latter is what we'll all call them?  Nice looking what you can see so far...

There's a fair to middling chance that, with his connections to CARC/Bill Kalush and his artist Mark Stutzman, he might go with the same factory that was used for the Legends and Exquisites.  It's not a certainty, but it's definitely possible.

The Rounders actually do have a slightly altered JoD.  The name of Daniel Madison's young child is hidden in the clothing near the face.  He uses the traditional Jack face to represent the child since there's no way to predict future appearance.

Wow, I had no idea about the rounders. That's a great little piece of info. Thanks, don!

I figured having Eli written on the court doesn't really count as custom but I guess if we're being that picky about it, I'll go with the JoD being "altered" rather than "custom."

Either way, I'm looking forward to the next Blaine deck!

Yeah - they're called "Gatorback Riders"...like in the title of the topic...  :))

Did you have something else in mind when you asked?

If you meant, "Do I approved of the name?", well, it's OK.  As good as any other.

I meant why the Gator part? I can't see any alligators, which is what I'd assumed.

Blaine also owns a pet alligator(s). He pulled one out during his real or magic TV special and has been known to tweet pictures of his alligator.

Undercutting CARC. Interesting. But is it worth the extra $30 to NOT have the db logo?

Scared? You don't seem like that type of person?

I wonder what Blaine is going to do when it gets too big? Its NOT exactly a family friendly pet. Most people think they can just donate it to a Zoo. They're all cute as baby's. That tank I saw on twitter won't hold it for long.
