Does anyone know where I can get an entire deck full of double pipped cards, like the type used in B-Wave or similar tricks, that is bicycle cards where the 7 of spades for example, is double pipped to also be the 7 of clubs and so on?

An entire deck like the above would be quite expensive.

The cards used in B'Wave don't really function as you describe. Because the cards are face cards they function more like split cards. I don't recall ever seeing a misindexed card like the one you describe.

Most misindexed cards are "off by one" cards. A six of clubs on one end and a seven on the other for example.

If you are just looking a a lot of (ratehr than a full 52 card deck) of misindexed cards Dan Harlan and Daryl use them in their marketed cards across tricks.

Andy Nyman's trick Dead of Night uses such a thing, if I recall correctly. I believe it's available at Alakazam.co.uk - and it was on sale as of a couple of days ago.

I would have thought someone sold a whole deck of double pips, strange I think...

I would like kings, queens and jacks only really...

Anyone else have any suggestions for buying them in larger quantities?

I also wanted the same as haywire. I ended up geting the Caj deck. The deck has 6 or seven "split cards"on it (mine were kings). You also get a couple other odd "split" cards(i.e. monte, and a double faced jack with it being split on both sides). I hope this helps. You also get some of the coolest and strangest gaffs I have ever seen.

A FA-KO Deck (at least mine) provides you with:

QH/QD
QC/QS
KH/KD
KS/KC

KH/4H (Split horizontally)
KD/4D (Split horizontally)

4S/4C

AH/2C (With center Ace Pip)
2C/AH (With Center 2C Pips)
For those times you need to replace your Skinner Ultimate 3 Card Monte

7H/3S (Split diagonally)
7S/3H (Split diagonally)
7C/3D (Split diagonally)
7D/3C (Split diagonally)

Haywire,

Did you ever find the double piped cards you were looking for?

I believe a gaff decks comes with some double pipped cards. Not sure though. Other than that I don't know where to get these.

Don't you need a special tool to help make these? I saw this once at a website but not sure if it was true?

You do not need a special tool to help make these. I have ones I have made myself but there is nothing like ones that are actually printed...and that is what I am looking for. I would like cards with just one corner pip changed and not split diagonally.
