Image just posted above -- The Magus appears yellow-green instead of golden; that's the missing blue. His background is purple instead of cobalt/midnight blue, again, missing blue. The Devil is gray-green instead of black; again, missing blue.

This is also readily apparent in the shadows, for example on the Magus. In the mid-tones, you can see the missing blue in the sea creatures in Death.

Certainly not broccoli green! The value problem is more noticeable than the hue really.

Still there is a big difference between the feeling of a warm soft golden versus a cool harsh greenish yellow. Color is very important in this deck.

I bought large ones on Amazon, and the borders are not green.

Check the detail - the actual lines on the borders - top centre and top corners. - there's a comparison of two cards in a post of mine where you can see that greenies have different ornamentation. Also the font of "TRUMPS" and the suit names is different on almost all greenies.

It doesn't really matter to me. The hue is obviously off and the value is way off. The borders are seafoam. It's a very different reading experience, a very different aesthetic experience.

Oh, lol. Hopefully I can just buy one on Amazon and get what I want, although I have my eye on a large Swiss on eBay, unopened.

I have the USG Swiss pocket printed in Belgium and the USG standard printed in the China, and actually, the standard is slightly better card stock. The images are great on both.

If the Swiss really is unopened (blue box ?) you should be OK.
