Was wondering, other than rings and coins, is this box capable of holding a folded playing card?

I'm referring to the one that hank lee is selling. http://www.hanklee.org/xcart/product.php......p;page=1

Yes, but it's a little tight!

It's a real squeeze to get the card in through the secret opening. Not practical I would say. This is more for small coins and rings.

Look at the Kennedy box or go back to some of the early magical literature to find a better (and cheaper) way of doing folded card to box.

It's not a problem if you give the card one extra fold. Or use Aviator bridge cards. The card stock is thinner and the cards narrower. They'll fit without much trouble at all. Having said that, I prefer to use John Kennedy's Mystery Box with a rubber band around it to keep the lid in place.

Or if you are really intent on using this method, there is a slightly larger size Lippincott-style box, known as a "watch box," that would probably do the trick.

Mel Babcock makes a very nice Watch Box, click HERE for more info. SETH
