Star Wars Producer JJ Abrams Designed These Mystery Playing Cards

JJ Abrams has magic in his hands. The all-star producer has guided Alias, Lost, Star Trek, and the upcoming Star Trek, Mission: Impossible and Star Wars sequels. Amazing resume. Now, he’s done a one-off design for playing cards, Mystery Box Playing Cards ($10). These come wrapped and sealed in letterpressed kraft paper. Open them up to reveal a Bad Robot deck (Bad Robot being Abrams’ production company) with artwork by Abrams himself.

Also consider the Lockbox edition ($150). Twelve decks in a handcrafted wood box made from 100-year old reclaimed wood and an iron-branded alphanumeric combination lock to protect it. Best part is $1 from each purchase go to 826 national, an American non-profit that promotes creative writing and workshops in schools.

Bruce Lee Playing Cards: Hiya, Hiii-Yah!

Had he been alive, Bruce Lee would’ve turned 73 the day before Thanksgiving–and would’ve carved that bird with his bare hands. A 73-year-old Bruce Lee also would’ve come in handy with policing that mother-in-law, but I digress. These Bruce Lee Playing Cards ($15) from Dan & Dave were officially made with Bruce Lee Enterprises to honor the movie star and martial arts king, and they feature an intense black and yellow motif, along with Chinese dragons (meant to celebrate Lee’s birth) and philosophical quotes from Lee’s teachings. Smartest thing your mother-in-law ever said? “Let’s eat.”

Bacon Playing Cards: No Grease Hold ‘Em

The effort to live a fully bacon-involved life surely carries over to your leisure time, but bacon on the card table could be a distraction. Work in the cured pork motif with these Bacon Playing Cards ($10) and pick up poker night with a reminder of what awaits you on your breakfast table the next day. In addition to the standard set you also get the “Bakin’ with Bacon” card game that challenges you to collect all the necessary ingredients to complete your bacontastic recipes before your opponents complete theirs. Delish.
