Some of the world’s most talented and influential magicians came out of the Vaudeville era. It was a time of creativity and variety that captured the imaginations of audiences around the world. Legends such as Houdini, Alexander, Carter, and Thurston graced stages adorned with rich red curtains and worked their miracles.

Custom Faces. Custom Backs. Custom Everything.

The Vaudeville Deck was designed to show that the era may be gone, but it is definitely not forgotten. Designed from the ground up over the course of 10 months, the Vaudeville Deck features 100% custom artwork that pays tribute to the grandeur and mystique of the great magicians of yesteryear. The back design evokes sweeping stage curtains that surround a crystal ball. The vibrant color scheme just begs to be showed off and will get your creative juices flowing.

The faces have an aged, vintage look, with each King being modeled after a famous Vaudeville-era magician. The Jacks and Queens pay tribute to antique fashion styles. Even the pips have been created from scratch with a stylish curtain theme! The crystal ball from the back design is seamlessly integrated into the Ace of Spades, which has an intricate and ornate design that’s reminiscent of a fine antique. The tuck case is a work of art by itself, featuring our custom Vaudeville logo, an eye-popping color scheme, precise embossing, and gold foil accents.

Unparalleled Quality

Ideal for eye-catching flourishes, ultrasonic throws, and amazing magic, the Vaudeville deck is a true performer’s deck. Printed for The Blue Crown by the United States Playing Card Company, the Vaudeville deck features premium stock and finish for ultimate quality and longevity. A special double-backed card with a crystal ball reveal is also included so you can unleash your inner mystic.

Nice, but... Report this review

It's a nice deck and I love the concept but the art is a little hit-or-miss on some of the cards. I'm also not overly fond of the beige backgrounds. I suspect that the artist wanted to "age" the cards, but the uniformity of color just doesn't look right.

This deck is beautiful! 5 stars! I love the artwork of the court cards, even the pips look amazing! The backs have a beautiful mysterious look to them. My spectators always ask to see this awesome deck as soon as i pull it out. This is great, because it sets me up for a pretty awesome trick and history lesson about Houdini. I start by showing the Houdini king, and telling them a little history about Houdini. Then i describe his sub trunk trick (metamorphosis.) I tell them he would chain up his wife, Bess, and put her in a box. Then i say that he would stand on the box, pick up a sheet, show it empty on both sides (at witch point, i show my hand empty.) Then i perform a color change turning Houdini into a black queen. I usually finish by opening up the deck half way and doing a slide drop to show that Houdini is inside the deck. This storyline effect works so well because they don't even know you are performing a trick until it's already half way over. This deck provides so many other options for brief history lessons about the vaudeville era of magic as well. Hurry up and buy this deck, you wont regret it!!

Gorgeous cards! Great for display and for thematic card effects. Apply the "Tool" visual transposition effect using the Vaudeville Houdini King and any Queen and you have a close-up Metamorphosis!

Love this deck Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 17th, 2013
This deck is so nice.....I love the old look of it....love nostalgic stuff.....I use the king and queen of diamonds(the Houdini looking cards) and explain the metamorphosis trick he and his assistant use to do and do a color change from queen to king using the Marlo tilt method.....But when I do it I pull several cards with the heal of my hand and plant the top card several cards down in the deck rather than just switch the 2 top cards......kills!!!! Try it you'll like it.

The Holy Grail of Decks... Report this review

Do yourself a favor and buy a brick (12 decks). Open one deck for yourself and save the rest to sell on e-bay someday. In twenty years the starting bid for these will be $$$ per deck, easily.
