“At one time they were Alaska outlaws, rebels or cons, bucking the establishment, living outside the law or swindling Alaskans with old-fashioned luck and charm. Here are 52 of Alaska’s most famous firebrands and deviants, those who took the Alaska spirit of independence and defiance to the next level, and made us cringe, laugh and cry.”
Unique Alaskan Spirits
The idea for Alaska Outlaw Cards was sprung sometime in 2007 in Anchorage, Alaska amidst a major local corruption scandal featuring a large cast of colorful Alaska characters. Grab your history books and you will find that this has been a long-time state tradition: swindling, bribing, cheating and otherwise bucking the establishment in uniquely rebellious Alaska style. Hence, the Alaska Outlaw Cards were born.
