Well then, would you consider having your deck reproduced more faithfully.
There are people doing beautiful repros now, with more modern digital techniques. Your deck looks to be a great candidate for them.
And I'm sure I would not be the only person interested in buying it!! There are a lot of Soprafino fans out here..
