Bicycle messengers brave the streets daily and have the scars to prove
it. That’s why we were stoked when we found the Chrome Aces Messenger
deck of cards from the apparel company Chrome.
Think of this as a cooler version of the "55 Most Wanted Terrorists"
deck issued to soldiers. Each card in the Aces deck features the
picture of a different messenger from New York, Portland, San Francisco
or Chicago - the bike courier hubs of the U.S.
With the help of local photographers and riders, Chrome assembled this
deck as a reminder to drivers to watch out for the two-wheeled
All proceeds from the sale of Chrome's Aces goes towards the Bicycle
Messenger Emergency Fund and the courier associations in those four
cities to benefit messengers who are injured on the job.
Injuries, lofty medical bills and lost work put the skids on bike
couriers’ livelihood. So cough up 10 bucks and support your courier
colleagues. You'll remember to drive more carefully and have a unique
deck of cards at your next poker night.
