Bicycle GHOST deck (opened, but like new)
Yet another of the myriad new Bicycle designs being churned out by US Playing Card at the request of magicians and magic dealers. The Ghost deck is a poker sized deck, with the classic Bicycle Rider back, but instead of standard red or blue color, the back is a ghostly white, resembling a photo negative of a standard colored back. The faces are specially printed as well, in all black and white (including the red suits), with the sole coloration being the index pip of the hearts and diamonds. This small pip is red with a bold black outline.
Of course you can use this deck for any tricks you do with a “normal” deck, but here are a few ideas with the special colorations of the Ghost deck: have a card selected from your red backed deck, and then you “erase” the color from the back of a selected card, using your favorite color change move. Or you can have a face card (like the Queen of Spades) selected from your normal Bicycle deck, and then cause the color on the face of the card to vanish (again, using a color change move), so you are left with a colorless Queen of Spades. I haven’t worked it out completely, but any moderately experienced cardworker could figure a packet effect where the faces and backs of four face cards lose there coloration of both face and back.
The deck comes with a fancy design Ace of Spades, and two uniquely designed Jokers, one of which is standing on an Ace of Clubs, so there’s another card revelation built in to the Ghost deck.
THIS DECK HAS BEEN OPENED FOR THE PHOTOGRAPH, BUT IS OTHERWISE UNUSED.
