Our pictures do not do this card guard justice. The card guard is made of solid Brass. It is very heavy! The card guard 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 Fish" with an ornate picture of a Fish in the center of the card cover. The entire outline of the head, ears, eyes, teeth, gills and fin is outlined in brass trim. So when the card cover is moved around it flashes in the light. Card Guards 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.
