Favourite card stab

Eric Masons card stab from his book “Stuff” is awesome. Definitely worth a re-read if you have the book.

There’s also a trick with match boxes in there which would be the best opener for a parlour show ever.


Card quality

Every time you open a fresh deck of Bicycle playing cards, you are handing 120 years of expertise.

Are you sure about that?! – found several cards like this in a brand new deck.


I bought several packs of seconds recently and I couldn’t find a single fault at all. Funny thing is I’ve handed this card to a few people and asked them if its ok – takes longer than you’d think for people to notice.
