A mysterious brand of manipulation cards can be found here:
http://www.magicgoods.com/ManipCard.htm
I have never seen these before. Does anyone out there know anything about them? While the link's name, "Manip Card" is the same name given to the poker-sized diamond back cards from Japan, these appear to be something else. Check them out.

Magic Goods is a good company. I have purchased other items form them and got good service. This company handles products from India. I would imagine these cards are also from india.

They are expensive. Norm Neilsen cards sells for $5 and $7.50 a pack.

Oh yes. These days it seems like every other manip deck out there is more expensive than Nielsen's (which I've been using for a long time). Nielsen has gone through some card stock and printer changes recently, so the nature of the cards has fluctuated. They are now back to a stock that I think is close to what they had years ago. But I am still in search of something closer. I hear Lance Burton brought out his cards for this purpose. I'd like to check his out, but they too are expensive.

The magic goods cards look almost like the ones Murphy Magic sells.

Almost. I suspect they are different though. Murphy's back design is very light-colored. These are dark. Does anyone out there have experiece with these Magic Goods Cards?

Looks like a deck that Vienna Magic used to sell. I have tried it and it is only good for single card productions.

I do a talent show act and I have to say that I don't do a lot of back palming, except when split-fanning. The cards I use...Bicycle. Their cheap and a new deck fans great. Plus, I don't have to worry about them getting dirty when I drop them. I must say that I have never used any type of manipulation cards, so I am sort of biased, but let me know what you think.
Thanks,
Travis

What do you do about the white borders?

I don't. I usually use the side grip production or I think it's also called the perfect production. I use this for singles and fans. When I do split fanning, I produce on fan after another without pausing and I keep my hand moving. This causes the border to just blend with my hand.

I diidn't catch the size of this deck. Are there any poker size manipulation decks out there as accessible as Murphys or Nielsens? These decks are all bridge size. I'm too lazy to make my own cards (from Bee's which have no borders), but would love poker size manip cards. Interestingly, I've seen some performers manipulate eg Bees that were fresh out of the box, stiff and unprepared!
