In an exciting collaboration between Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) NFT holders and Bicycle Playing Cards, a highly anticipated limited-edition Bored Ape Community Playing Card Collection has been completed.
This unique collection features Bored Ape artwork and aims to bring the community together through a shared love for both digital art and traditional playing cards.
BAYC and Bicycle Playing Cards Unite
After a worldwide casting call, Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT holders and Bicycle Playing Cards have joined forces to create the long-awaited Bored Ape Community Playing Card Collection.
This collection includes 54 cards, each featuring a Bored Ape that was selected as part of the 1227CastingCall initiative. The initiative was launched by Bicycle Playing Cards after they became part of the BAYC community by purchasing Bored Ape #1227.
Community Spirit Shines: Joker Fan Vote Bracket
Staying true to the spirit of BAYC, the community played a significant role in the creation of the collection.
The Joker cards for the collection were selected through a “Joker Fan Vote Bracket” tournament on Twitter.
This community-driven approach adds a personal touch to the decks, making them truly representative of the BAYC community.
A Playful Collaboration with Unique Decks
The collaboration between Bored Ape Yacht Club and Bicycle Playing Cards has resulted in the creation of two limited-edition decks: the Golden Banana deck and the Silver Banana deck.
The Golden Banana deck is an exclusive collection available only to BAYC, MAYC, and BAKC communities, as well as Bicycle NFT holders.
On the other hand, the Silver Banana deck is available for purchase while supplies last on the Bicycle Playing Cards website.
Both decks come with a price tag of $49.99 each.
Additionally, Bicycle Playing Cards is offering a limited-edition “Ape Hundred” 3-pack set for $199.99, available in both Golden Banana and Silver Banana editions.
These sets offer collectors a chance to own a piece of this unique collaboration, complete with a personalized display case.
A Playful Community Comes Together
Masha Ievseieva, Vice President of North America Marketing and Global Insights, expressed her excitement about the collaboration, stating, “Collaborating with fellow Bored Ape holders has been a blast, and we’re really excited to bring to life this one-of-a-kind collection.”
She emphasized the playful spirit of the BAYC community, which has come together to create a deck of cards that is unlike anything ever produced before.
A Touch of History and Heritage
Tricia Bouras, CEO of United States Playing Card Company and President of the Global Entertainment Division at Cartamundi, highlighted the historical significance of playing cards as a unifying force.
“Our playing cards have brought communities together for over a hundred years,” she noted. The collaboration with BAYC adds a modern twist to this legacy, bringing together traditional playing cards with digital art.
Embracing Collectors and Creators
Not only will the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT holders featured in the collection receive a unique Joker NFT, but they will also hold a place in the Bicycle brand’s long-standing heritage.
This adds an element of exclusivity and recognition for those who have been a part of the BAYC community.
