Actually I should have said "printed" not "painted." All the coloration is printed in, then the card finish was applied. There is no difference in feel whatsoever.

Thanks, that was a concern, seems like they may feel like a grabby feel to them. Good to know, the Invisible deck would be real nice. I am too lazy to spray a deck but I am sure they will come out with one in good time. Thanks again

Dave V,

Awesome detailed review! I didn't even notice the backs like you did. I did notice they all looked different but that is great! I bet that Ellusionist will take heed to what you said about making a marked deck and put one together.

Great job!

Marc

PS Brad Christian has posted on this thread so I am sure he will see your review!

I got myself a few decks of these, and while I was waiting for them to arrive I set about making a leather case for them. I've seen some leather card cases before, but all I've seen have been black, so I got myself some brown leather and set to work. I attached a picture of what I have so far, all that is left is to toss the case around a bit to give it an "old" look, and then I have nothing to worry about with the card box, although I do hate covering its "beauty". Let me know what you think.

I used the two advertising cards to solve the modern printing problems with this deck[bar code,zipcode,flap printing etc.]
I carefully cut the ad cards to fit the dimentions of the sides,bottom and flap.I eliminated all borders on the cut outs,and used a glue stick to attach them,thus covering up all modern printing.

Now the card box looks like something from the 19th Century with the red Bicycle pattern all around and NO modern printing.It actually turned out better than I expected. Smile
I also used slightly diluted tea extract to color tint the GLARING whiteness of the box interior.I also brushed some on the card edges so they don't look so fresh.

Best.

For those worried about the barcode and logo, why not cover it with some opaque tape? Could work even better if you bang the box around a bit first. It's so old, it has to be taped together...

There was another thread about these, I suggested going to a stamp shop and finding a foreign stamp and just pasting it over the bar code like a tax stamp or something

Even with the minor inconsistancy of a bar code and perfect edges, these are a must have. I love em'.

Danny Archer markets a trick called "The Grandpa Deck"
(think along the lines of the trick called PHIL)
Anyway the patter in the instructions talk about a Grandpa who remembered the
names of his children and grandchildren by writing their names on the backs of cards. This deck would be perfect for Danny Archer's routine.

you can easily adapt the vintage deck to fit this.

I have been playing with this deck for a week or so and 2 things I noticed. One the boxes seen to fall apart rather quickly much quicker than most boxes and while this may work with the look of the deck the inside of the box is not aged and the clean white inside look strange in an aged box. Also when you tear a card in half a white powdery stuff kinda puffs out. anyone else notice any odd stuff with this deck?

I haven't torn up any cards so I haven't seen the white powder thing happen. I did notice that they're a bit "waxy" feeling. It causes them to drag against each other a bit making even a simple overhand shuffle difficult to control. It reminds me of the feel of a deck after applying fanning powder. I've been experimenting with making a stripper deck out of these and this drag makes stripping very difficult to control.

I posted the above quote and I am in error. Although the Granpa Deck is a great effect you "cannot" easily adapt the Vintage Deck. It would take at least 26 decks unless they come out with a one-way deck. If Ellusionist does, I will most certainly get it to do the Danny Archer effect. Sorry for the mistake.
