The Boris Wild Marked Deck (Bicycle) A nearly limitless number of staggering magical effects awaits the owner...
Out of stock.
Al Baker was the first magician to use an alphanumeric system of marking cards. In the 1950's, he transformed portions of the natural back design of Bicycle Angel Back Squeezer cards into letters and numbers indicating the suit and value of each card. In the intervening years, several marking systems hve been devised using letters and numbers, most notably the Ted Lesley Working Performer's Marked Deck. The Boris Wild system, however, trumps them all (no pun intended). Instead of needing two marks per card, Boris' system uses only one...

Amazing deck. Report this review

This deck is amazing. The pros immensely outweigh the cons for this deck.
Reading the cards will take practice. I'm still working on being able to read them from a few feet. That's the ONLY thing I don't like about this deck. It's not easy to read them when they're farther than like 2 feet(for me at least.)
So obviously, the markings are extremely well hidden. You won't find them until you read how the system works and know what you're looking for. There are a few that stand out from the others, but not by a lot.
But after knowing what you're looking for, memorizing the system, and a few minutes of practice, you'll be reading each card in seconds if you're holding it in mechanics grip or the cards are spread on a table or whatever.
Highly recommend this deck. With practice and the right routine, this deck will KILL. TONS of effects possible. Super fun to make up your own tricks.

This is by far the most easy to follow and subtle marked deck I have ever come across. You can literally creat miracles with this deck. I always perform Mental Though on Benjamin Earl's DVD Past Midnight. This deck always fools spectators and because the deck is familiar with the spectator though don't have a reason to see the deck.
Instructions : Very clear and easy to follow
Quality : Very high quality deck and marks
Overall : I am very happy I made this purchase, it may have been one of my better purchases I have made in a long time
Best marked deck Report this review

This is my favorite marked deck, because the marks are very subtle, and you can read them from a spread, unlike other marking systems where you need to see the middle of the card. No one looking at the back of a card will ever see the markings... I'm not sure if the deck can withstand riffle scrutiny, but since the marks are near the edge, there's a better chance they will, since most people will be looking elsewhere.
The only negative comment I can make relates to its strength: because the marks are so subtle, you may have some trouble making them out yourself at first. However, the more you work with it, the easier it gets.
I would also recommend buying some of Boris Wild's marked deck routines, either in book form, or in his DVD set. You can perform some true miracles with a marked deck, but you can also perform some absolutely terrible effects if your peeks and reveals are too amateurish.
Inovative idea from Boris Wild Report this review

This is a great marked deck and unlike other non Bicycle decks that have been around for a long time this does not look like anything gaffed or marked. The DVD that you can get for the marked deck is a valuable add on to this deck and yes if you use it a lot you will need to replace it sooner or later. Show me a deck of cards that you don't. By that point the deck should have paid for itself anyway. This is a great deck and once you know the secret it is a snap to use and the effects are endless with it. If you ever get to see Boris Wild perform especially with this deck you will truely see the value and power of this deck of cards. Add to cart ASAP.
A nice deck Report this review

This is a great deck for beginners and experienced magicians alike. Every now and then it's nice to put the slight of hand away for a while and let the deck do all the work for you. It is well made and very difficult to detect. No more forcing cards once you've got this. The best part about this is that it can also act as your normal deck so you don't have to worry about switching. It's also great to have while practicing your classic force.

This deck is the best marked deck out there, its a must have, especially becuase it's printed in bicycle style. The most popular and well-known decks in the world. When I first saw it, it took me a good 5 mins to find the marks on the back but once you find them they're incredibly easy to see, I was a bit iffy about that but no-one has had any suspisions yet, and the tricks you can do with this deck are limitless.

easy to understand!!!! Report this review

Normally with marked decks, they're super hard to read, and takes days of practice to easily read them. But with this it took me 5 minutes to understand. If you're bored with the hard to see stuff, get this.

Being fairly new to close up and card magic I found this deck easy to read. With a little more practice I should be reading them like a pro.
Pretty neat idea Report this review

These cards are great. The only problem is that someone MIGHT be able to see the markings, unlikely but possible.
No one has spotted the mark Report this review

This is a great deck. I wouldn't worry about anyone finding the marks, however, sometimes (not often) it is hard for the performer to find the marks. I have had a lot of luck with this deck. It's worth the money.
