HI,

I have been doing magic for about 2 years now and just started getting serious about it. I was looking on ellusionist.com this morning and the description of the black tiger deck talked about reverse image playing cards. I don't know what they are. Could someone tell me what they are?

Sincerely,
Jacob (JBetts97)

I think they are referring to the fact that what is normally white on the cards is black on the tiger deck. In the olden days of computer terminals this was called "reverse video", perhaps an old nerd did the write-up?

The product video shows these cards: http://www.ellusionist.com/product/acces......+deck.do

Though it does raise this question: I don't think I've ever seen mirror image playing cards. I can think of a couple of fun effects that could be done with them.

Nope. The images and corner letters/numbers would be mirror images (backwards).

There are a few ghost gaff cards that are complete mirror images, I have a few tricks I've managed to figure out with them.
