One of the top magicians of the 1970's, 1980's and 1990's, Magic Christian, teamed up with Europe's high quality playing card manufacturer, Piatnik, and together they put out a line of excellent number, alphabet and ESP decks for magicians.
Here is the number deck, with classic Piatnik back design in RED, and bold red numbers on the face. The numbers run from 1-52, plus you get a few extra cards
Perfect to use for mentalism effects, or simply to do some of your regular card tricks using number cards -- it is fun to watch spectators' reactions when you use numbers instead of standard card values -- the tricks are the same, but for many effects, the impact is much stronger. I often do a version of Triumph with number cards, where not only does the up-and-down deck sort itself out, but also ends up in numerical order! (That effect is not described in the instructions that come with the deck, but if you know the workings of Triumph, you can easily work it out for yourself.) The ambitious card is another effect that seems to improve when using number cards.
Excellent quality bridge size cards, which handle like a dream, allowing for any card sleights you may want to use.
Hard to find these Piatnik decks outside of Europe...maybe even hard to find them in Europe now, as I do not see them on the Piatnik website anymore, so looks like they are no longer being made.
Brand new and unused, Red backed 1-52 deck, with instructions for a few effects, but you will think of lots of ways to use these cards.
