Dealers Playing Cards contain a Daniel Madison marking system. With each deck, you will receive a downloadable movie teaching the system.
Marked decks can cost between $20-$30, but Daniel wishes to offer his system at the price of a normal deck of cards as you can see above.
Dealers in Erdnase Green use the exact pantone color of the book Expert at the Card Table by S. W. Erdnase.
As used in 1902, these playing cards utilize an edge-to-edge borderless casino "gambling house" design. If you are worried about double lifts etc, perhaps it's time to stop relying on white borders to hide inefficiencies. These cards will help you to get good at what you do. Madison has used the edge-to-edge design for that single purpose since he was a teenager taking people's money in real games.
We cannot emphasize enough. The cards are printed to Daniel's specifications and are the essence of a standard held long ago. They almost fan themselves. Seconds are smoother than anything you may have been advantaged to feel before.
If you believe these fine playing cards fit your personal style, pick up a deck or twelve and put them through the wringer: bottoms, centers, shifts, palms, changes and switches. See how these trusted sleights feel in your hands.
DEALERS MARKING SYSTEM EXPLANATION
As stated, there is a movie by Daniel Madison explaining the value of a marked deck and going over the system that is provided with Dealers. Here is an image that also explains the system which is meant to be a visual aid and reminder to the movie.
This deck is a handsome alternative to any standard casino-style deck. If you like a borderless back it's hard to beat the Dealers. The green color looks great too; these are professional playing cards that fit the "card deception" performance style. I found myself using the Dealers more for tabletop and closeup card performances. Fans and other flourishes are a bit muddled and busy because of the back design, but casino kinds of close up is enhanced. I have yet to use the marking-system, but I've used marking systems before, including DM's blood and AN's the Code, and I really love the effects one can do with them; they tend to be the most mind-blowing when mixing things up with a bit of mentalism.
The quality of these cards are amazing. The finish is very durable as well as the stock. Though I would not recommend this deck for magic, because in a spread it is a little hard to differ between individual cards. Great for practicing gambling slights. Five stars all around!
These cards are awesome! They are really smooth and nice. The border-less design makes sleights very easy. I live all the was across the US and chose the cheapest shipping... it arrived in three days! Ellusionist and their shipping is amazing, I recommend buying from them.
