So few creators get 'aging' correct on props. From what I can see here, the cards look terrible- like they were stained in photoshop and digitally printed. And why the high price? For a rusty box and a business card you could print out at home?

Don’t forget that it also includes the pencil!!!



Of course the pencil is probably an electronic peek device, a transmitter, a receiver, rechargeable, with a range of 300 feet. 😃

Unless it’s just a regular mini golf pencil, then nevermind.

For the price there needs to be a good routine to justify it but this is missing. Without more details, I think the makers could have a lot of rusty tins left on their shelves.

You can clearly read these cards in low light from across the room. That is worth the price of admission. Now you get a backstory and some cold war era goddies.
The notepad gives you the opportunity to conduct an experiment straight out of the CIA's covert MK Ultra project. Complete with a pencil. An old pencil. At the conclusion of the test, turn the page and provide final proof of a direct mind to mind connection via swami. Tear the page from the notepad, and leave as a souvenir of your experiment.

In case you're not familiar with Gemini Artifacts. That's the guy who Was chosen by Bram Stoker's estate as the exclusive artist to reproduce and age the rerelease of the original Dracula books. So these cards are of a higher pedigree than what you pick up at the regular shops.

Is there any way to see the back design? The backs are very important to me.

I thought it was the CIA seal. Yellow tinge, white border.

The only thing printed on the back is the seal if the Central Intelligence Administration. That makes the cards directional

For $150 definitely need more info on this... maybe a live demo video?... I mean, I already have more than a dozen sets of marked ESP cards... for the price, this has to be something special.

This is what I have been asking for for sometime. For the high price it is only reasonable to be told more about the routine or see live demo.

I fully understand and respect this thought. Much like a set of high end playing cards or other "prop", the main feature is that this is a utility item that can elevate the look and feel if what you do. I also have a ton of cards that all fall short. Bridge, funky looking symbols, over worked/magic prop back designs, nothing that looked authentic. Something that felt and looked sterile, scientific and official. Even the back design on the original ESP cards used at Duke had a overworked back design. This includes a great backstory, beautiful cards that look and feel like they are out of a cold war testing lab. I include a basic routine, and there are plenty of routines on the market as well as a basic progression of reading the person's freely chosen card from a distance.
I understand that the price is high, and not everyone can afford a Mercedes. These are limited edition, professional grade cards, that I don't want in every magicians act.

I think there’s noticing bad about pricing good products high. And I do believe that these are top notch cards. But there are serveral other cars that are good and fit for a good presentation. Why on earth should I pay 150 bucks for ESP cards? My specs are completely cool with my cards, Never ever has one questioned anything. Yeah, they are nice, But...

I totally understand and I respect your point of view. If your spectators are good with what you have and do are you, then "these are not the cards your looking for"( in my best Obi-Wan voice)
