Deck Review: Diamond Marked Cards by Diamond Jim Tyler


Knowledge is power.

In a magic performance or when playing cards, it is important to be a step ahead. Owning a marked deck of cards is a diabolical secret weapon.
However, many devised marking systems are complicated or so small that they are hard to read.

Diamond Playing Cards are DJT’s solution.

The box is black with a matte finish and arouses intrigue.
The mysterious Celtic Diamond conjures up an old world feel and is raised and printed in a silver foil ink.
The almost hidden black on black ambigram that reads ‘diamond’ hints that there are surprises to come.
The stylistic metallic seal completes the presentation.

The cards are printed on USPCC’s finest stock with an air-cushioned finish.
A subtle one-way element has been added to make locating a selection simple.

But the best part is hidden in plain sight... There is an easy to read marking system for each card.

Diamond Playing Cards will turn heads and allow card workers to perform miracles.

Thank you for the kind review. I thought I'd share an amusing story.

I can use the same deck of cards for months, before retiring it. Then it becomes a deck that I use for signed card effects so that I might give away the cards. A month ago a lady who had seen me months before smilingly removed her signed card from her purse and said "I still have my lucky card!" The back of the card was toward me. She asked, "Do you remember my name?" Luckily I had heard someone say it just minutes before. I told her her name and said you picked the luckiest card in the deck, the Seven of Diamonds. She screamed with glee! Thank goodness they were marked. :goof:

I haven't seen these in person, but they sure look good. I love the idea of the marking system here, and how it's been incorporated naturally and cleverly into the design!

[i]Nine of Diamonds, King of Hearts, Ace of Spades anyone[/i]? :)

I love marked cards - but poor eyesight!

But when you know this system that scream the value almost; but still remain hidden to most I think
