Back – the back side of playing cards.

It is always applied to the same pattern so that the cards could not be distinguished by the shirt. Famous manufacturers are often portrayed as brand patterns and logos. 

The gamblers use different methods of applying the label on the shirt. This gives them the ability to determine the suit and face value of the card before it leaves the deck. Accordingly, they can make optimal decisions that allow them to win over the casino or the opponent.
