There was a time when I traveled the world looking for the most elite card game on the planet... one muggy evening in Thailand a bartender told me the rumor; a shadow run (a floating card game never in the same place twice), where the pot was your soul... yup, you heard me... a devils game for your life!
Having been around the block more than a couple times, this was the kind of action I was out to score... none of that Las Vegas stacked-odds hustle for the tourists... but a real gamble that could thrill the soul, literally, to death... I know it sounds dark, and perhaps it is... but when life itself can ride on The Joker or The Ace... an old hand at poker just can't look away!
I never did find that card game, maybe it was just a myth after all... but some have mentioned over the years, Mephistopheles doesn't like to play with winners... and since my gambling skills got me far enough to actually seek the Devil's game in the first place... perhaps Lucifer saw my Ace game coming, made his horns curl!
Y'know, I always wore this shirt to the card table... I guess it was my good luck charm, all that artistic history in one place... they say it takes a truly converted prison con, a man who believes in Angels, to properly create the artwork of an ace card... and lemme tell ya', no Joker in the universe got the game to trump this retro killer playing card tee!
I'd be willing to bet you, in my case... this lucky vintage shirt literally chased the Devil away!
