Product Description

Now marked. The 1800s just got better

The cards you love just got better.

The 1800 Vintage deck now holds a very special secret. Each card is individually marked with a covert system entwined into the natural design, allowing you to instantly read the suit and value simply by peeking the back.

No detail was left untouched-- artwork on each card was delicately hand-crafted by Ellusionist's top graphic team. Even the seal on the deck looks like it was left in a gritty New York alley "for a spell".

The cards are an illusion in themselves, because they may look very old, but they handle superbly. You have to keep telling yourself, this is a new deck of cards.

• Integrated Marking System
• USPC Thick CASINO GRADE STOCK
• Grungy, cracked and awesome
• Quality finish that delivers
• Includes explanation video
• Available in Red and Blue backs

My original review of the Vintage Series 1800 follows below, under this review of the Marked Vintage Series 1800. The original review applies completely to the comments about the look, feel, its’ price and contents of this marked deck, except that deck has no card markings.

These cards are presented by Daniel Madison on behalf of Ellusionist.com in a three-part video, which is accessible with a special wed-link that comes printed on a card. The first is a minute-and-a-half trailer which displays the cards. The second video is almost four minutes and is entitled “Learn the Marking System”. Madison explains the simple system using enlarged graphics of the cards and highlights the markings using computer enhancement. The third video “Ideas For Your Marked Deck” is almost seven minutes long and Madison reviews some ideas on presentation and a memorized deck routine. The promotional video is almost five minute and consists of much, but not all, of the video provided with... [Read More]

These cards are beautiful, well-made and add a touch of style to any magic but the marked version is a massive disappointment. Tiny and frail, the markings are hidden in the superimposed 'creases and cracks' that make the cards look old. There is no decoding involved as the marks are alphanumeric but - even so - the info is far too difficult for me to read.

So let's start at the beginning. I bought the original unmarked Vintage 1800 series when they first came out. I loved the look but found them a trifle slippy. They fan easily, glide easily and are relatively thin, so they crimp and cave easily too but they don't 'sit' and behave as well as less glossy stock. As you work with them, you find which controls are made easier with the slip and which controls are made 'trickier' - if you'll pardon the pun. Still, like many of my ex-girlfriends, I found the looks outweighed the practical problems - most of the time.

So I jumped at the chance of a marked version and I did what we all... [Read More]
