Hi, everyone
Does anyone happen to know a source to buy single odd-backed poker sized cards or single colored back (not blue or red) bicycle poker cards?
I only need a couple

Dooblehorn - I've seen single cards sold on eBay but they tend to be bridge sized cards that folks collect. Another source would be to by the Rainbow Deck which has a complete deck of different back Bicycle cards.

Would be a lot simpler to answer if you were specific in what cards you seek. Are you trying to put together a set for John Bannon's "Royal Scam" for instance? then we would be able to figure how many of the same certain card with "X" number of different backs you would need as well as "X" number of cards with the same back in a particular order.

Single cards with different backs is really too vague to give you a complete answer. Also, as stated above, if using bikes, the "Rainbow deck" (or two or three) is a perfect place to start. Also has been on sale at The Magic Warehouse for over a year that I know of. http://themagicwarehouse.com/cgi-bin/fin......W%20DECK (if you are not an Amazon guy) I prefer to support the Brick and Mortar when I can (I have 2 or 3 from them) made various sets up and combined two partial decks to make the old "Nick Trost's Rainbow Miracle" (I had it years ago in bridge size and still have the directions so I made a poker size set).

Hi, Poof Daddy,

Really liked your tagline. Speaks a lot about you, I guess.

Sorry for the digression in the thread.

I believe he was referring to my sig.
"Don't spend so much time trying not to die that you forget how to live - H's wife to H on CSI Miami (paraphrased)."
Which, as you know, truly does speak a lot about the way I live my life.

Not to derail the thread because I love hunting, finding and even making cards with unique backs. That Rainbow deck helped me a lot when I used to use bikes. Now that I use Phoenix full time, I get a lot of my extras from an extra "Prism Deck" I bought as well as a few decks of each of the new color decks recently released. I have put many sets together in Phoenix back that you just cannot buy that way. The journey is half the fun. I even made up a deck each of "Mental Photography", Reverse Svengali, Mene Tekel and showed them to Card-Shark at Magi-Fest. As well as several popular packet effects by Bannon and several others using Phoenix cards.
