Marked & Gaffed

Marked cards allow the magician to identify a card from its back or edge. Sometimes only certain cards are marked, other times each and every card is marked and identifiable.

Gaffed cards come in all shapes and varieties from comedic gaffs of misprinted faces and backs, to sleight-enhancing modifications such as stripper decks, and sometimes mechanical wonders that can change and transform. Some of the most common supplies for these mechanical wonders are invisible thread, either of the regular or elastic kind, double sided tape, magnets of different shapes and sizes, and plenty of playing cards to cut up and or glue together.

Ronald Haines

36 Tricks With Fa-Ko Cards by Ronald HainesRonald Haines, through his business Haines House of Cards, sold a deck of gaffed cards called 'Fa-Ko' cards. This deck is not anymore available but perhaps you can find it second hand. However, now that it is very easy to make your own playing cards (see DIY Playing Cards) this collection has gained in value.

From the foreword

The gimmicked cards required are listed at the beginning of each effect. The regular cards needed must be removed from a regular matching pack.

This FA-KO Pack is not a toy for children, nor is it a collection of "self-working" tricks. It is a collection of professional secrets,...

F. R. Ritter

Advantage Card Playing and Draw Poker by F. R. RitterThe first part and majority of this book deals with marked cards. It shows numerous examples of how and where to mark various back designs popular during the early 20th century in the United States. The second part briefly describes sleight-of-hand for the card cheater such as second dealing, bottom dealing, shuffling, false cuts, and mechanical hold outs. Each technique is illustrated with a photo, which is quite remarkable for a book from that time. The third and final part deals with the mathematical odds of draw poker.

Some people believe that F. R. Ritter might be S. W. Erdnase, the unknown author...

Bob Farmer

Bammo Gaffus Maximus by Bob Farmer

A collection of new and novel gaffed decks, which you can easily all make at home, and strong effects that go along with them. Requires little to no sleight-of-hand.

From the introduction:

There is nothing sweeter than a gaffed deck that does something amazing, something that cannot be duplicated in any other way. A deck of cards looks so innocent, and is such a common object, that when it is converted into a wolf in sheep's clothing, the audience becomes an easy meal for the predatory wolf pack.

Many of the ideas contained in this manuscript have been encouraged, corrected, improved...

Chris Wardle & Paul Hallas

Beyond Svengali: applying the svengali principle to mentalism by Chris Wardle & Paul HallasHere, Chris Wardle explores the use of long and short cards (Svengali Deck style) for mental magic presentations. Whilst initially he gives some background to the Svengali deck and how to make and handle one, some routines use variants on the deck and several don't use playing cards at all. There are thirteen routines from Chris plus some additional commentary and a bonus routine from publisher Paul Hallas. Chances are after reading this you'll not think of the Svengali deck in the same way again.

Since the appearance of this booklet (his third) Chris authored Magic For Everyone (2006) and...

Chris Wasshuber

Blistr by Chris WasshuberBlistr is a new card punch with two important differences to more traditional card punches. First, it is built like a pair of small pliers and therefore very easy to use. The pliers are a flexure design 3D printed from carbon reinforced nylon. (Starting design was created by BYU Compliant Mechanisms Research which I modified to fit my needs.) Second, this punch creates a bigger smoother blister than needle based punches. The tip is not sharp and therefore does not punch trough the playing card. For many this will be easier to feel than a fine needle prick. The blister is a half dome with about 1 mm in diameter....

Boris Wild

Boris Wild's Lecture by Boris WildBoris is probably best known for his 'Boris Wild Marked Deck', which he describes here in detail. (For the right material to prepare your Boris Wild Marked Deck please see here.) He also teaches his version of a memorized deck, which you can learn in 6 minutes, because there is a system, a formula if you will, to it. And particularly the combination of his marked deck and his memorized deck allow you to fulfill your Wild-est effects.

If that is not enough then you will also learn the Kiss Count. The Kiss Count is a new move in cardmagic. Thanks to it, you will be able to pretend you have four...

Zaw Shinn

Burmese Change by Zaw Shinn

Burmese Change is a triple card change using a gimmick and sleight-of-hand.

Spectator signs a card which is returned to the deck. The magician takes a random card and the card changes two times in to different cards, and the third change is when a random card changes in to the card signed by the spectator. After the trick, the card can be given to the spectator as a souvenir.

Requires the preparation of a gimmick which is three cards thick.

Burmese Vanish 2 by Zaw ShinnIf you didn't like Burmese Change because of the setup, then here is a different way you may like much better. Zaw Shinn has created this version in pursuit to find the most practical and visual effect he can perform up close in front of the camera. This vanish is easy to do and it looks like CGI.

Card Punch by Chris WasshuberThis is a card punch 3D printed from the finest carbon fiber reinforced nylon. A card punch is used to mark cards imperceptible to people who are unfamiliar with it. If you do not know how to use it this item is not for you. There will be no instructions supplied with the item.

The primary innovation in this model, besides that it is 3D printed, is a screw-needle combination which makes adjusting the depth of the punch a breeze. Simply turn the screw a bit more in or out to set the needle tip deeper or higher. If you have moderately strong fingers you will be able to turn the screw by hand....

Tom Phoenix

Divide and Conquer by Tom PhoenixThis is a series of methods for taking a spectator-shuffled deck and sorting it into piles of red and black - while blindfolded.

And one of the methods (as shown in the demo) gives you the ability to identify the suit and value of each card of a borrowed, shuffled deck, requiring no memorization.

There are six methods in total, three of which use "special" decks (can still be used for your other card magic), and the other two use borrowed decks. All of them can be done blindfolded.

ESP Cards with Bicycle Back Marked by Lybrary.comYou will receive four sets of 5 ESP cards (circle, cross, three wavy lines, square, star), a total of 20 cards. Two sets have a red Bicycle back and the other two sets have a blue Bicycle back. These cards were manufactured by USPCC on their standard air-cushion cardboard.

All cards are marked on the back in an easy to read way. A short glimpse is all you need to know which symbol it is. However the Bicycle back design wonderfully camouflages the markings if you do not know where to look. Wonderfully matches regular Bicycle cards allowing combinations of effects with ESP symbols and standard...

Hallucination by Sultan OrazalyVisual and practical effects are rarely combined into one trick. Hallucination is a very practical and visual trick.
