I just feel that the 100 anniversary reissue of this deck should have been treated with more integrity. I feel putting it back into its' original glory would have been a great way of paying homage to it.
Just my humble opinion and maybe some on here can elighten me on this subject.
The "Original Rider Waite" was published with the roses and lilies back, but the card colors are dark and muddy. I believe Kaplan printed it from his 1909 copy. So doing the Centennial deck with the roses and lilies would have been redundant. This new edition is much more appealing color-wise. I personally like the new backs a lot, but I don't care much for the bright blue organza bag.
