Here is a copy of an E-Mail I got from US Playing Cards.

Yes we bought out Kem, we will have is card about mid March.

She can't spell too well, but that is what she sent me 1/7/05. I have bought Copag cards and they play just as nice.

well mid-March is fast approaching and i havent heard any new Kem news for 2 months. i really hope that USPC gets their act together. from the email above, i guess it gives us an idea of the intelligence level of their company [img]/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] so i wouldnt get your hopes up.

A store I went to had the new cards (however, it was a month ago). I don't have a long history with KEM's or Copag's. The store did have both the original and new KEM cards. The new ones weren't bad, but not like the originals. To me they fealt more slick, not as textured, and the color wasn't as vibrant.

I thought the Copags were better then the new KEM's and bought a couple decks of those.

I just picked up an old set from an e bay store that were manufactured in Sep. 2002 (902 on A[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img]). They look and feel great. I'm planning on getting at least 3 to 5 more sets from my seller before they're all gone.
