Not that I'm aware of. I contacted the company in South Africa a couple of years back in an effort to order a large quantity of their decks.
They were remarkably indifferent (I'm being polite).

I have an alternative for you that may work.
I'll PM you to keep this 'off the air.'

Why not use Phoenix?

Dave are you talking about the orginial Phoenix deck that was offered through Haines House of Cards during the 1950s and 1960s or a newer version? I Asked Haines to make me up one of the early style which they did only because they still had the orginial instructions in the archive. I was also the first person to buy one in 25 years.


Slim, Haines is in Norwood, Ohio give them a call they may be able to help. They are around the corner from US Playing Card. While Ronald Haines is no longer with us his wife Betty still can make special decks up by request. Many may not know that they were the ones who made Fox Lake and supplied much of the card magic to the industry at one point before the advent of the net. There website is week at best and since its an old school magic shop you will need to call them. There phone can be found on line. I had a couple of other specail old decks made up that were designed by Hall Haines has the rights to make that have not been seen in decades. You just got to ask. Also the cost at that time a few years ago was about 20 to 25 per deck and well worth it. Just do not do what I did and forget where you put them or use them to make another deck special deck thinking that the pop eyed popper was just a regular deck. Did that a couple of times.

Order the Phoenix DD - far superior to Protea in every respect (104 reasons as a matter of fact)

One can buy regular Protea decks from the manufacturer at about $1.00 US per deck. Minumum order is 50 decks. (Shipping additional.)

Me too - makes little sense but what do I know lol???

With Phoenix you get 104 cards that are th****r and better made with a complete deck with zero limitations. Protea not so much.

Oh well - go buy 50 decks then and you could always give 'em away for the holidays.

I already have four separate routines set up using these decks. It's Basically the only card stuff I do in Mentalism. It would easily be worth $50 to end clean on these four effects. I try to always end clean and allow the audience the opportunity to handle anything they wish.

This might be worth the effort if others were interested in the regular decks. With shipping from Africa... plus shipping to those interested, the price would probably hit about $4.00 a deck. Then again, I got shafted by at least one Café member (no one in this thread) who asked me to buy some lectture notes, then never replied to my PMs after I paid for the notes. It's a rather tricky thing, dealing with folks on the net. If one bought some blank-faced decks as well, they could be used quite well in corporate or trade show work. Just thinking out loud.
Magically Yours,

Well ... $200 is a bit different than $50... so I guess I'll just buy one at a time. Smile
