An unidentified performer shows off their skills at cardistry and sleight of hand using a deck of special Blue Checkerboard playing cards. While anyone can get their hands on a similar Svengali deck, we doubt that most of us could handle it with the skill and smoothness of this magician.
Marvelous Decks‘ created this colorful deck inspired by our tiny feathered friends. Holographic foil can be found throughout the deck, while the tuck case adds sculpted embossing and multiple foils for added effect. Available in red, blue, or purple. The gilded three-pack is extra special. Pre-orders start shipping 1.2021.
While showing off his moves, cardistry expert notseano decided to flick a card behind his back, nailing the trajectory just right so it boomerangs perfectly back to the deck in his left hand. He says he was surprised, but the confident look on his face says otherwise.
From Bicycle’s Cardistry collection comes a deck with vibrant orange backs and fronts, accented with bold geometric patterns. The non-standard card faces have no pips or numbers, making them great for showing off your flourishes, though useless for playing poker. Their Air-Cushion finish is designed for smooth shuffling.
These light-up playing cards aren’t playing cards at all. They’re props for cardistry performers to enhance their visuals, and to help beginners learn moves. Sold in sets of four, each one has LED lighting inside that illuminates a detailed pattern that appears on both of its sides. Available with blue or green lighting. (Thanks Kory!)
Designed for cardistry and magic, The Seers‘ latest playing cards feature a bold red and black geometric back design with an all-seeing eye at center. Their fronts offer high contrast designs that really pop, along unique, but easily recognizable suits, numbers, and face card images. The uncut sheets make sweet wall art too.
Designed by December Boys, these unique playing cards feature a twisty black and white zig-zag pattern on both their fronts and backs, creating for dramatic illusions for cardistry enthusiasts. Comes with four double-backed green cards for chromakeying effects in videos.
Photographer Darren Dyk teamed up with card wizard Sean O to create a cardistry video like none we’ve ever seen before. Everything you see here was captured using real fire, and Sean’s hands were coated with dish soap and butane while performing. Don’t try this at home.
Cardistry master Noel Larsen-Heath shows off some of his impressive card handling skills, from spinning cards on his fingertips to floating them in mid-air. The last time we saw someone bend playing cards like he does, the guy next to us at the blackjack table got shown the door.
