Why is the LA.com brick worth more than others?

Jerry's Nugget Bricks sold on Ebay.In the past, several authentic bricks have been sold on ebay from reputable sources. However, either the sellers chose to open the brick for photos (like the ones pictured to the left), or took twelve random sealed decks and stuck them in a box, to create the illusion of  an original brick. While this is fine, and would make a wonderful addition to any playing card collection, it's not like the factory original brick for sale here.

What is of incredible value here is to own something that can NEVER be recreated again, on so many levels. These are not just 12 decks, this brick is a true and rare piece of playing card history.

Jerry's Nugget Playing Card brick history

On a cold day in 1970, the presses, cutters and cellowrap machines came to a rest at the factory in Cincinnati Ohio. A worker carefully hand-packed six red and six blue decks of the last white brick of one dozen Jerry’s Nugget playing cards. The tuck flap was glued shut, the brick was placed with 11 others in a specially manufactured cardboard shipping case and eight solid brass industrial stapes were used to seal the top and bottom flaps.

The case was shipped from Ohio to North Las Vegas Nevada where it sat in darkness for more than a decade, when a collector with foresight invested in several such cases of Jerry’s Nugget playing cards, and had them shipped to a acclimatized storage facility where they now await one lucky collector’s call.

One person, with the same taste and vision as the original collector, will be the proud and lucky owner of this pure white brick of 12 perfect decks of Jerry’s Nugget decks. These cards have literally never seen the light of day, since they were manufactured, boxed, wrapped and lifted into their white custom cardboard case, the flap still sealed as safe and secure as the day they left the US Playing Card factory.

Almost anyone can acquire one of the finest decks of cards ever made, all they need are the funds and the drive to find an authentic pack and a trusted seller.

Yet it is near impossible to find a Mint Condition Original Brick, still factory sealed, containing 12 perfect packs of Jerry’s Nugget Playing cards.

One lucky person, somewhere on the planet, will make the impossible come true when just such a brick becomes a valued prize in their personal collection. Will you be that lucky person?
