Just ran across this while searching for a packet trick storage solution and thought some of you might like be interested:

Unfortunately there are no dimensions, so given the slight difference in size between credit cards and playing cards it's impossible to tell from the photos whether or not it will be too tight of a fit. If anyone is willing to take the risk, please post your results!

There's a slightly less expensive version without the change compartment here:

Note that the reviews on the above site for the first model I posted indicate that it doesn't hold many credit cards, so this second model may be a better choice.

I have one similar and it is not large enough for poker size cards cards, but you can put coins for sure

That's a bummer. Thanks for the update.

OK, here's another one in leatherette. This one I've tried and, although it's a snug fit, it holds two packets of at least 4 or 5 cards (possibly more) in a more elegant (and more compact) way than the standard vinyl holders:

The price is certainly right (assuming you can find them locally and not have to pay a shipping charge) and they're well worth trying out. Below are a few pictures showing one (left) next to a vinyl holder:

Don't forget Joshua Jay markets a case specifically for cards and coins. It might even have a loop to attach to your belt if I remember right. It's called the Pro Carrier and you can get it direct from Josh at JoshuaJay.Com

I use this one. Mine is black and it holds color monty, wow gimmick, duplicity, stoplight cards, and visible monte. This is a great wallet.

Dollar Tree has digital camera cases that loop onto the belt. They can hold packet tricks, a deck and many coins. It's made of nylon with two zippered compartments.

I have a leather credit card wallet that I bought years ago at Walgreen's and removed the vinyl pockets - holds two packets of cards.
