Wild Card Miracles by Frank Garcia (paper, very good condition) 1977 First edition. 

     148 pages.

The card effect that made Garcia famous (much to Peter Kane's chagrin) led him to compile this book of routines on "his" world famous Wild Card effect!  (He does give credit for inspiration to Kane in the opening lines of the book.)

  Many big names fromthe 1970's magic scene contributed routines and moves for this book:  Dingle, Jennings, Skinner, Vernon, Carlyle, Slydini, Frost, Fedko, etc, to name a few.

 If you own a set of Wild Cards, don't miss this!

this book has not been previously owned, BUT it was in a warehouse for over 3 decades, and has some "carton wear"  -- scuffs and marks on the cover.  Some white spotting on the black cover and spine, etc.  However, the book is otherwise tight and unmarked, with crisp clean pages inside the cover.

Wild Card Exotic Faces (Bicycle Back; poker size)

The Wild Card effect is probably the greatest packet effect ever... Certainly it proved that a small packet of cards could be used to devastate (and entertain) an audience.   Whether you give the inventing credit to Peter Kane, or to Frank Garcia, the trick remains an almost perfect demonstration of close-up card magic:     eight jokers are shown, and one queen. The jokers are visually turned into queens until all nine cards are now queens!

This set was printed in India, hence the very exotic look of the queens and the very flamboyant Joker design.  The backs are the familiar Bicycle Rider design (though to be clear, these cards are not printed by the US Playing Card Company).     The card quality is not as good as cards from USPCC, but they are nicely printed, and they do handle well for any of the standard sleights used in Wild Card routines.  

 If you do Wild Card, you will like this set that adds a very different and exotic look!   If you don't do Wild Card yet, you should start doing it soon!   Might as well get this set now, as you will want it later, after Wild Card is one of your favorite card effects.

No longer made, this is a new and unused set from about 1990.  Only one of these in stock in Poker size.
