Buy a deck of each gaff and you'll have 52 sets to give away. Just a thought.

Actually, you only get about 45 sets from two decks, because of the duplication of some of the cards. You can get the special decks you need from any magic dealer, and Frank, since you already are a dealer, from FUN, Inc. in Chicago or from D. Robbins & Co. here in Jersey. FUN, Inc. also sells the Two Card Monte sets already made up, but if you have the time and the patience, it would probably be much cheaper to assemble them yourself.

Don Driver, bless his heart, made up a very attractive sleeve template that you can photocopy and use, as part of his Svengali Pitch video. And if you have Microsoft Publisher or another desktop publishing program, you can make up your own sleeves for the cards (but they may not be as neat as Don's!).

I include these with every Svengali Deck purchase, and many laymen think this is coolest thing since sliced bread. In my experience, it does make a nice giveaway item, and if you put your name on the sleeve, it's a good promotional piece, too. SETH

I planned on just getting DF, DB decks and making them up myself.
I already have the don driver stuff.

Though I am a dealer, the decks are all OUT OF STOCK.

So I need to look elsewhere.
Don, bless his heart, gave me the number to call but the number was wrong.

So...

that's my (current) story and I'm sticking to it! Smile

I'm amazed that both FUN, Inc. and D. Robbins don't have anything in stock. Maybe it's because it's the start of "the season" and all the other Svengali pitch guys bought them out?

If all else fails, try Howard at The Magic Warehouse, (877) 946-2442,
see HERE, maybe he can help you out in a pinch. SETH

Hi Frank,

A friend of mine uses these all the time as give-aways and gets his from D. Robbins Magic. They are a wholesale only company but since you are a dealer, you'll will have no problem. They send bulk DF and DBs. A 2 Card Monte Bridge HK gross is only $12.00.

Hope this helps. Mark.

Thanks guys.

btw,
Fun Inc had them in stock but they have a large first order requirement that I was not willing to fulfill.

Frank, did you get the number to Eddie's Trick Shop from Don Driver. They sell the decks for one dollar, and have no minimum order.

If you make your own, be sure to get a copy of Lloyd Jones' book "SBS". You will eventualy acumulate a lot of same-both-side cards.
