Playing card brand, Bicycle, has launched a Bicycle x Smiley Collector’s Edition. The commemorative decks are part of Smiley’s 50th anniversary takeover with Bicycle and other major brands incorporating the trademark “smile” image into established products. The limited-edition deck features the design created by graffiti artist, André Saraiva, who transformed Smiley’s original “Take the Time to Smile” campaign “Smiley” icon into the design for the new Bicycle playing card deck. 

The capsule edition Bicycle x Smiley Collector’s Edition deck features a foldout image of the iconic “Smiley” and a unique number out of 9,999 limited-edition card decks. Bicycle x Smiley Collector’s Edition playing card decks will be available at select Nordstrom locations throughout the U.S. and at Nordstrom.com. The collectible Bicycle x Smiley Collector’s Edition decks will also be available at major retailers in Germany, Spain and France.
