The signed deck has a unique image on each of the 52 cards, plus 2 different Joker cards. Each image is signed by the artist of that artwork, so there are 54 original artist signatures.The signed card sets were produced to benefit David Singer (described below, as printed on the card insert).
The David Singer Project:
"David Singer is widely considered to be one of the greatest artists in the field of Rock and Roll art. He began his endeavor in 1968 when he approached the legendary promoter Bill Graham about doing art for his renowned Fillmore poster series. He ended up doing over 75 pieces, which is more than any other artist in the series. Throughout the years, and still active today, he has done numerous other posters, albm covers, prints, design projects, etc… Besides being a respected artist, he is one fine human being and a true gentleman.
In 2006, David was struck by illness that left him in coma for many months. Out of work for more than a year, numerous artist and performers have stepped up to help out one of their own in a time of need. This project, The David Singer Project, is for him."
As a founding member of the Family Dog, Kelley handled promotions for the events at the Avalon Ballroom, drawing posters and handbills. He soon met up with Stanley Mouse, and their association nurtured Kelley's success as an artist. Kelley had a natural talent for collage and a keen eye for culling and combining imagery and styles from diverse sources. Teamed with Mouse's drafting skill, collaborations became increasingly sophisticated, yet irreverent. Kelley always worked by hand, producing posters and other print graphics for a wide array of entertainment-oriented clients.
