Marked Vintage 1800 Deck (Blue)
No detail was left untouched-- artwork on each card was delicately hand-crafted by Ellusionist's top graphic team. Even the seal on the deck looks like it was left in a gritty New York alley "for a spell".
The cards are an illusion in themselves, because they may look very old, but they handle superbly. You have to keep telling yourself, this is a new deck of cards.
Available in red or blue backs, you'll quickly understand why these cards are so popular when you start using them yourself.
The cards look older than your aunt, but handle better than anything out there.

This deck is better than I expected, I didn’t care if it handled well but it was a plus when I opened them and they just glided, the deck looks so old I’ve had people not want to touch them when they were brand new lol, my best haunted deck has been with this deck I want to say this deck tells the story for you...
This is a great deck of cards. I went to my local magic shop and was shown a deck and was even after being told they were marked, I couldn’t see where. I was impressed and bought a blue deck on the spot. I’ve read other reviews that say the markings are obvious, but I disagree. Even after showing a few people how they’re marked, they still couldn’t see it. After getting familiar with how everything is written, I don’t miss a card. I just need to buy another one so I can have doubles for other tricks. I guess the only other thing I would have wanted with it would be a double back, other than that, 5 stars.
While the markings are easy to read when known, it is hard to find.
My mother, who actually bought me this deck, asked to know how a trick was done, where I dealt all of a selected suit from a shuffled deck. I said it was a memory trick and she grabbed the cards to look for markings and couldn't find any. After she threatened to take them off me for good.
I told her the markings were the ageing marks near the middle angle's head. I said it was a code. That was a couple of weeks ago, and the trick still gets her every time, I even vary it to poker hands or multiple selections.
Great Deck, Great handling, Great finish. Love the design.
