Absolute, total hotsauce.

Comes with:

- A nice manual with 9 tricks
- Double backed card
- A "Fine Print" Sankey type reveal of another card embedded in the Ace of Spades
- A duplicate normal Ace of Spades
- Highly quality deck stock

FOR FIVE DOLLARS. Compare to a regular marked deck at $20...

Looks like a pretty good deal but the box? I use a card clip anyway but labeling the box "Mind Reading" limits options.

I probably should have specified: The actual deck's box is a normal split spades design, and contains no "mind reading" text. The outside packaging box has all the mind reading stuff.

So once you toss the packaging, you have a perfectly normal deck of cards (and box).

Ahh... Cool! Thanks for the clarification. One more question. Do you have any of the original Split Spades? If so is it the same stock and finish? Those decks go for $5-6 on their own so if that were the case it would be an insanely good deal!

I do own one SS deck, and this does look and feel the same.

I bought 11 of these. Now i know there Black backed from your review. I may buy 1 or 2 matching split spade decks. Shame that the split spades deck now seems expensive in comparison.

I've had the Ultimate Marked Deck for sometime. Always scared to use it cause i know they are out of print and definitely dont want people to sign the cards. But with this, i dont care. Plus the split spades deck looks good and doesnt look too gimmicky like the Arcanes do.

Nice review, I have just about every marked deck out there but I am curious as to whether the markings are similar to Boris Wildes Marked deck or more like The Ted Lesley system (My overall favorite) I do like the Ultimate marked deck as well but that's very pricey.

Markings are more like the Ultimate Marked Deck. though the booklet credits Ted Lesley at one point.
