I've been sorting through an old trunk of props and found dozens of old Fox Lake gaffed decks. Strangely though, it seems like almost all of them are in Aviator cases. Do you think Haines House Of Cards originally sold them that way, or that's just something that the previous owner did?

It is hard to say, but it would have been an expensive proposition to buy Aviator decks just to use the boxes for gaffed decks. And where would you put the Aviator decks which were now boxless?

To be fair, if they used Aviators a lot in their act, they could have simply kept the boxes of the decks that were worn out after extended use and used them to to rehouse the Fox Lake decks.

" John Snyder had a special agreement with USPCCo. to sell him Aviator bridge cards in his own proprietary Fox Lake™ boxes. Ronald Haines basically purchased this agreement. Magicians who had a certain amount of "snap" would either make their own gaffs or have people who knew how to do it make them."
