Pinochle has become an American institution. Played with a specialty deck of cards, it appeals to persons of all ages. These genuine Bicycle playing cards are specially made for Pinochle. Each deck includes 48 poker size (8.9cm by 6.4cm ) cards with red backs. Each card has a standard (small) index on the corner. Please note that these are specialised cards that are different than those used for poker, bridge and other card games.
