Our pictures do not do this card cover justice. The card cover is made of solid Brass. It is very heavy! The card cover is hand painted in amazing detail. The card Cover is encapsuled within a plastic protective case to ensure your card cover never scratches or dents. The Card Cover is about 2 inches wide, which is almost as wide as a standard playing card. The front has the term "Im a Donk" with an ornate picture of a donkey head in the center of the card cover. To the left and right of the head is the 2 of spades and the 7 of hearts (commonly known as the worst hand in poker). The entire outline of the head, ears, eyes, teeth, nose, chin and hair is outlined in brass trim. So when the card cover is moved around it flashes in the light. The back is also hand painted, but more of the metal shows through. (most other card guards are only metal on the back - in our opinion not as interesting) The back is a textured metal with a smaller head and the Im A Donk Slogan "No Skill Required" stamped on the back. Card Covers are great items for any poker player. They work great as a gift for the poker player that already has all the typical poker gear. When you play at a table with a card cover, it works as a functional device in that it signals the dealer that your hand is still live and protects the cards from being accidentally mucked. It also serves as a great conversational piece. The "Im a Donk" card guard will even put the grumpiest poker player in a great mood. Recently, Card Guards have taken on a collectible nature. Many poker players like to collect items of their sport. The "Im a Donk" Card Cover will be a great piece to your collection.
