From 2013 kickstarter campaign, when they printed Deco, USPCC delivered the decks but failed to catch a major production issue. Each deck had major scratches and scuffs on the sides wearing off the ink almost completed they looked through all 5000 decks by hand and in the end were only able to keep 60 match pairs of this first printing all of the rest of the decks were returned to USPCC and destroyed. There are only 60 matched pairs of the Deco 1st printing in existence the first 30 pairs were sold to kickstarter backers in a special offer. These decks differ from the final version by featuring different side panels with the metallic ink pattern on the sides, smaller pips on the back, embossed reveal's and a much more subtle pattern on the bronze deck.
