Idea I had for years using the same gimmick only making the deck bigger...

I use mini-cards for imaginary/invisible deck. When I bring it out, I tell the spectator they were not thinking hard enough about the deck (hence the small size)

Nice......it’s “Micro-Macro” using no table spread. Never thought of doing it this way, very nice.

I have recently started hand m--king cards as a hobby--mostly Bicycle Rider and Maiden backs. I find working with the Bike Minis particularly challenging both for the smallness of the areas to be m----d and because of the glossiness of the backs, which do not take in-s as well as the more porous air-cushion finish on the regular poker size cards. I find that it is rather like "running with weights on" to create a nice, clean set of the Minis, but when done right they are just as usable/legible as the standard size cards, and no one has ever raised the question of any funny business going on with the backs. Further, their small size even justifies a bit of slack in time spent glancing at the backs without arousing undue suspicion. FWIW--just thought someone might find this interesting.

J.B. BoBo (yes, the coin guy) had an entertaining routine for a mini Brainwave Deck decades ago. I've forgotten the details, but it might be worth tracking down...

Go on youtube.put in BRICK TILLEY LITTLE CARDS. to see a bro.hamman trick long lost, as it's a chore to construct...
God's grace rocks! It makes a good cups and balls routine look pretty boring in comparison.

I always liked the card that had on the face all of the cards spread out, but tiny. So you'd have someone think of a card and then you'd hand them this card face down and say "The card you are thinking of is here", or something, and of course it is because the face side shows all the cards, just really tiny.

There was a neat newer Smile (1970's, maybe 80's?) version of this called DOWNSIDE UP by Gaetan Bloom and sold through the venerable Ace Place Magic.

The kicker is that after you get the laugh with the 52 on 1 card, that same card--no switch-- is held between the spectator's hands and when it is viewed again ONE CARD is now printed face down. When the 52 on 1 card is turned over to the back side, the matching face of the one selected card is seen clearly printed there!

Now THAT is an oldie, but a goodie...
