Excellent for Beginners 28 April 2008
By Drue Klinowski - Published on
Format: Cards
This deck is perfect for beginners who want to learn a few tricks. The 52 card "stripped" deck is well made and makes some of the more popular card tricks (included in the booklet) very easy to learn and repeat. The gimmicked cards are also well crafted and seem to hold up over time and use. Beginners will find the instructions/illustrations are well written/drawn which makes learning fun and gets you going with these tricks very quickly*. If you are more advanced with card magic you will find this entire set a breeze. This set is as good as any you might find in a magic shop. It is nice to see a well made set with multiple tricks all in one neat package at a reasonable price. Buying these tricks individually would prove tedious and expensive. Once you have mastered this deck, then learn all of the "stripped" deck tricks with a "normal" deck...then you'll be on your way!

*Learning some basic card handling and sleight of hand will make these tricks EVEN MORE impressive!

Mr. Mysterio's disappearing 16th card trick... 18 Aug. 2008
By ST - Published on
Format: Cards
I'm surprised that none of the previous reviews mentioned Mr. Mysterio's missing 16th card trick. As you will note in the product description..."The kit also contains a set of 16 "gimmicked" cards, including - An Eight of Clubs that makes a matchstick levitate!" Well, no such trick is included. The booklet states that 16 gimmicked cards are enclosed, and then proceeds to describe only 15 such cards - omitting the gimmicked 8 of clubs. The trick is simply not mentioned anywhere in the booklet. I checked the publisher's site, and it has the same product description as Amazon. It also has a page preview link - guess which page it calls up - yes, the "Eight of Clubs that makes a matchstick levitate!" page. I guess the trick was part of the package when first released.

If you're interested in how the trick is done, here's the link to the publisher's site:

Surprisingly Good 10 Jun. 2006
By Don't Post Things on the Internet - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
Didn't expect much out of this one, but it actually turned out to be a great deck for anyone who wants to do magic. It has 16 great 'gimmicked' cards, and a full 52 card 'stripper' deck, that enables you to do great tricks. It also comes with a very thick instruction book, written by 'Mr. Mysterio', a magicicain from the 20's. There is also something of a plot line to the instruction book, with funny intruductions to the tricks. If your a beggenner or an advanced magician, this an amazing buy!

Great Card Trick Deck 24 Feb. 2011
By Steven Bassett - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
If you're an amateur magician or fairly experienced one, this is the deck for you. The deck is made to fit your hands very comfortably. The cards are very flexible and flex well so you don't have to flex them hard to get them to shuffle easily. The deck comes with a second accessory deck of special cards that are "supplemental" to the main deck. The supplemental deck has special cards that are double sided or designed for specific illusions. Some of the cards are specifically designed for specific illusions, such as putting a cigarette through a card or for that matter just about anything that will fit in the card that are about the size of a cigarette. The main deck is soft and easy to shuffle. The main deck is of the standard tapered style where one side of the card is slightly thinner than the other side. This gives the magician the ability to easily "strip" a card out of the deck quickly. The result is great for the beginner, making it very easy to learn how to strip a card out of the deck and find it. Although it takes a bit of practice to learn how to pull a stipped card out of the deck, it doesn't take very long to get good at learning how to "strip" a card out of the deck or multiple cards out of the deck.

The deck comes in a well designed case made of strong card board that is almost the strength of wood. You won't have to worry about the case breaking any time soon. The cards will last a long time.
You will be very happy with this deck. It is solid yet flexible and soft. The only "con" I could find to the deck is the cards are a bit "course" unlike other decks that have smooth cards these cards are a bit rough textured which makes them a bit less easy to slide one card over the other. This makes them a bit less easy to do some tricks such as double dealing the cards without them sticking to one another but it's not a big deal to get the hang of learning to deal the cards without them sticking to one another.

On a scale of one to ten I give the deck an eight. The supplemental deck gets a ten plus. Then supplemental cards are great for doing additional illusions and the additional tricks that can be done by the supplemental cards outweigh the drawback of the slight roughness of the supplemental cards.

Bottom line, these cards are worth their weight in gold. They come with a nice booklet telling you the history about them and how they came to being. The deck was originally "made" by a magician in the early 1930's and "found" by a guy in the attic of an old house. He found the deck in an old steamer trunk and after a bit of looking around to various card companies he found a company that was willing to make a new deck. The original deck was old enough that it was in tough shape. After the card company reconditioned the cards the result was a great deck of new cards. You won't be sorry for buying them and the price is right for sure.
Great set of trick cards 6 Dec. 2013
By K. Haskins - Published on
Format: Cards Verified Purchase
This is a fantastic set of cards and tricks for anyone, especially beginners. The booklet is well written and details the tricks with background story to perfection. You don't get many variations, but that is where you, as the magician are supposed to be creative with your own presentation and patter. I highly recommend buying if you like card magic or are just looking for a great place to start learning.
