We are delighted to announce that the first “Joker” to be memorialized in the inaugural Tacoma Playing Card Deck is WILD BILL JONES!!
Dyann Lyon states “On Father's Day I saw the news about your project and fell in love with what you (Amy) and Maija are up to. After reading about how I could support you I chose to contribute and give Wild the gift of the Joker. So bottom line, it is a gift from me to him and we are supporting your cause in the process. I hope that makes sense. It is an awesome way to support a new business, the city I was born in and we call home, Tacoma, the arts which I love and my dear husband, Wild, all in one neat little package!”
This is perfect! The jokers are meant to represent positive forces in our community (past or present).. think R.R. Anderson Action Heros.. And Wild Bill Jones fits the bill (and so "pun-able")
There is ONE Joker left, who else should be honored in such a way and forever remembered in this soon to be classic deck???
