Great Moments in Vagrant History…from Antihero

Now available is a set of decks i’ve done for Antihero, the Great Moments in Vagrant History.  This set of pro decks celebrates great men, pioneers if you will, living on society’s margins.  Groundbreakers who our history books often turn a blind eye to.  The brave individuals responsible for many of the modern advances witnessed every day on our city streets.  VISIONARIES.
