My absolute favorite version of Wild Card, because the old fashion cards, and the gypsy curse patter story, make this intriguing to watch, as well as mindblowing magic. The wild card effect, for those who don't know it, is that seven spot cards turn change to match a single face card. The cards are cleanly displayed throughout, completely allaying any spectators' suspicions that the cards are gimmicked. (They are, of course, but the clean handling negates this idea!) Original Emerson and West cards, not the newer reproductions.
This set has been previously owned, and is mssing the original parchment. A replacement parchment paper has been included, but it is a bit stained and torn as seen. One of the 9 of clubs cards has a very minor bend/dent, which I tried to show in the picture -- it is near the upper right club pip, but it is so minor, it is hard to see. The cards still handle well for the necessary moves, etc in the routine.
The instructions are original, and in good shape. The original vinyl storage sleeve is NOT included with this set.
