Hello all, new account here (because I no longer have access to my old one).

I've been working on a few silk routines but I'd like to produce a boxed deck of cards from a silk, however I'm looking for a method that doesn't present it as a trick necessarily, but more of an afterthought. For example, I don't want to have to purposely present the silk as empty and whatnot. I just want to be able to *casually* handle the silk (from which the audience will gather that it is empty) and while pattering, produce the deck. Can anyone recommend any sources that might be helpful to pull that off? Thanks for your help!

This section is for stage and parlour presentations, so my suggestion will not work for Close-Up Magic.

It is simply a matter of using the methods for Dove Productions. The silk is not gimmicked or attached in any way. So it fits your requirements.

If wearing a jacket...reach in to get the silk (and pick up deck of cards which you drop into sleeve at armpit)

Deck is now sleeved and you can retrieve any way or time.

It works. I use to use this to produce my 'Invisible Deck'

Zauberman, Thanks for reminding me of that old Invisible deck production. When the late great Patrick Page was lecturing in the U.S. I purchased one of his new productions called a Sleeve Dropper. It works for jumbo 3 inch coins, and decks of playing cards. I used it all the time. I highly recommend it. It is now offered on Patrick pages Website. It is so nice his family decided to keep his his memory alive. They make a lot of his wonderful products. It is also made so that it can be reloaded very easily right in front of your audience and spectators.

Here is a direct link to his Sleeve Dropper, it works with a simple pinch of the jacket sleeve, using a natural gesture.

Bob, you are right on, I did not think of that even though I use one in my shows.

I found the Abbott's Gung gimmick to work best.

I think you should use deck holder. Or if you want the self contain gimmick, you might use devil hank.

What is a deck holder, never heard of such a thing. Please give a reference to it.

Trevor Duffy invented a safe and reliable boxed deck dropper that works similarly to Pat Page's coin and card packet dropper. It is easy to mount and easy to use. https://www.penguinmagic.com/p/8872

I think that Indomagic was actually referring to a Deck Holdout or Card Dropper. It is a worthy old school idea, inexpensive and easy to use. I'd say the sleeve method is a tad easier and slightly less angle sensitive.

Zauberman's recommendation is the least expensive and works a wonder!

Here is a Deck Dropper from the late Norm Nielsen: https://nnmagic.com/store/manipulation-s......dropper/

You need to wear a jacket deck does not have to be boxed.
