My first foray into the world of card magic was with Marshall Brodien's TV magic cards, back in the early 1970's. 

Well, the Svengali deck is the same thing, and I still use one.  If you switch in this gimmicked deck after a few regular deck tricks, you will flabbergast the audience.   And because it is a familiar Bicycle poker-size deck, you can switch it right back out again at the end.

The effects are limited only by your imagination, but here are a few ideas: an easy ambitious card routine, where the selected card constantly comes to the top of the deck; an ESP miracle where a spectator tells you when to stop dealing cards, and the very card they stop on is the selected card;  the classic routine where the entire deck changes to the selected card...

You cannot have more fun with a deck of cards than with a Svengali deck, especially if you are a beginner, but experienced magicians can also have a blast with this deck...if they are honest enough to admit they still use one!

NOTE:  as has long been the practice with Svengali decks, this deck contains 48 cards, not 52.  This standard practice started long ago, in order to leave room for the instruction sheet in the box with the deck.   But your spectators will never notice the difference between a 52 card deck and this 48 card deck.

This is an older HAINES HOUSE OF CARDS deck, from the late 1980's, but handles perfectly.  (It is from new-old ex-dealer inventory, so never previously owned or used).    It includes the very cool, retro deck wrapper, with the devilish bat design, and bold "Haines House of Cards" name on it.      NOTE:  the wrapper has some tears and edge damage -- see last photo.   Deck, tuck case, and original instruction sheet from that era are all in excellent like-new condition.

 Very collectible and nostalgic for those of us who used to see every gimmicked deck wrapped with similar paper bands.  :-)    But the deck is also great for performance also.

THIS LLISTING IS FOR A VINTAGE (1980's HAINES) DECK WITH COLLECTIBLE DECK WRAPPER.  BLUE BACKED BICYCLE POKER-SIZE.

THIS DECK FORCES FIVE OF SPADES
