So I had this great idea recently, but it requires me knowing how thick a poker card is. Unfortunately, my calipers are broken!

Could somebody with calipers please do me the favor of finding a few measurements?
If you would please:
1) measure the thickness of a whole deck of cards.
2) measure the thickness of an individual card from that stack.
3) tell me what brand of cards you're using and if they are a specific type.
4) tell me how many cards were in that stack (some are 56 cards, some 52)
That would be greatly appreciated.

Preferably you would be using a cheap 2-for-1 deck from a dollar store...

Thanks!

Bobby

Uh... The short explanation is im going to glue them together in stacks of different thicknesses to use them sort of like a silver bullet with gripper training. Also have considered using CDs for this.
