Introduced in 1898. Discontinued in 1908. Cyclist No. 1 is a pleasing design, examples of which appear for sale with some regularity (see a detail of the design, below). This back design is easier to find in its US8d iteration, and blue decks are offered for sale more frequently than red ones. Finding any Cyclist No. 1 deck in an original box would be highly unusual.

A red US8d Cyclist No. 1 deck with no box in VG+ condition sold on eBay for $121 on October 12, 2016. A blue US8d deck (VG+, no joker, no box) sold on eBay for $76 on November 15, 2016. A blue US8b deck (VG, no joker, no box) sold on eBay for $89 on May 7, 2017. A blue US8d Cyclist deck (G/VG-, a few damaged cards) sold on eBay for $21 on June 25, 2017.
