Southern CA has a few branches of Daiso Japan pop up. It's Japanese imports only similar store to a 99 Cent Only business plan. Most all items only $1.50
I found a jumbo version of ultimate 3 card monte style cards under the name Transposition Card. Size of cards approx 2.5 times size of regular poker. Packaging and instructions in Japanese but rough english version on back.
A few other items too, couple of mentalism packet tricks, twin pack of mini hat coils, finale streamer throw outs. Neat store, small magic section but if they see an interest maybe they'll expand it. Check it out.

Been to 3 locations and are sold out of the Transposition Card (3 Card Monte). That or cease and desist order imposed.
Another trick they have that I consider a sleeper is the Bloom In Air. 4 spring flowers and a dropper. Instructions do not say but the Dropper is colored and shaped well enough to show hands empty before producing flowers using black art method. Also only $1.50

My understanding was that Tony Picasso is The Cardfather

I was surprised to find that out too when I saw him perform at the Castle. I've been a member of the Café since 12/2002 using The Cardfather as username. Not sure how long Tony's had it but if he had it before me I have no problem dropping the username. Heck, even if he took the name afterwards I'd drop it. But I really don't think he could care less.
