Is there a deck with Jack of Diamonds with Jack of Hearts on the reverse, etc.?

Am looking to reduce the size of a deck to 26 cards for a card to wallet routine.

Advice, please.

Thanks ... johno

What you are looking for is a deck of double facers (not double backs). It's widely available, just check wherever you buy your magic from.

You will actually need slightly more than 26 cards for what you want, since a couple of the DFs are the same on both sides.

That may not be the case anymore. At least if you want Bicycle stock double facer's The U.S.P.C.C is no longer making anything that alters the backs, Faces of the joker's or ace of spades. If you want double facer's or double backs may have to go back to splitting cards or have some one make them for you.

USPCC - IS - continuing to print DF and DB gaffs. What is affected is, as you say, something that affects the design of the back or the face of a joker or ace of spades.

By definition the factory printed DF deck:

1. doesn't have any backs
2. uses the USPCC standard faces

Me too !

I wanted to do McDonald's Aces with queens (kind of like Ricky Jay's take on The Exclusive Coterie from Erdnase). I had to have 2 DF queens made for this, as the QD/QC are the same on both sides in the factory deck.

Why not do it with Jacks instead of Queens. Then it's TOTALLY different from Ricky Jay's routine.

Because the JD and JC in a normal deck of DFs are also same faced.

I have two tricks published which use Same Face D/Fs. Halfusion on Killer Gaffed and Cagey from Omega Mutation.

Then you need the new Ken Krenzel book. Or Doc Eason's bar magic DVDs.

John,
Not to step on your creativity, but twenty six "outs" is kind of a lot for a card trick. You might was well use a card index... you can do a lot more with one and the cards aren't "funny."

Basically because I wanted to do it for a specific occasion, and the Queen of Hearts had a relevancy.

I didn't decide to do it totally at random ...! Smile
