This is an ultra-limited gilded version of the Glider Back playing cards. An eye-popping blue foil has been applied to the edges of the cards to add an element of elegance and shine.

The cards also have a gorgeous tuck box made from elegant matte blue paper, with the designs stamped in white foil. The box is topped off with an individually-numbered sticker seal. Only 250 decks have been made!

One year ago we released the first edition of Glider Back playing cards. They sold out quickly, and fans have been demanding their return ever since.

We've made several improvements to the deck in version 2, while keeping some key elements the same as the originals.

The Glider Back deck is a 100% custom deck of playing cards featuring origami-inspired artwork. The back design has paper gliders arranged in an appealing geometric layout against a classic blue background. The traditional-looking back also contains a devious but easy-to-learn coded marking system designed by Kevin Reylek that allows you to identify the suit and value of each card.

We sent a sample deck to one of the world's foremost experts on marked cards, but we didn't explain the system to him. His first response was, "I tried to work it out with the riffle test - couldn't see ANYTHING - I did eventually work it out but d*** that is well hidden. I was starting to wonder if you were winding me up!"

So before you view the instructions on how to read the cards, see if you can figure out the system on your own!

The V2 edition has all-new court card and joker designs, while the familiar spot cards are designed to look as if they've been folded out of paper.

Glider Back playing cards feature UltraLux™ Finish and AquaFlow™ Coating. The casino-grade European card stock and perfect linen texture deliver a deck that handles like an absolute dream. The cards are traditionally cut with smooth edges that provide just the right amount of grip. Printed with vegetable-based inks and water-based coating, the cards are planet-friendly as well! Gliders are soft enough to get to work straight out of the box, but durable enough to meet the needs of a full-time magician, cardist, or card sharp.

These blue gilded Gliders won't last long - get yours today!

Still has me grinning Report this review

I honestly believed that my deck wasn't marked, I kept scanning them over and over and I couldn't spot anything. It's true, they hold up to being "taken to the movies". I finally caved and watched the download to have the secret explained to me and wow. I'll admit it will take me some practice to be able to note what card I'm looking at at a moments notice. But considering the fact that this is cleverly marked in a way that withstands any known method of exposure is a testament to its design. I'm also a fan of the art on the court cards. The way they aren't stuck in the boundaries on their cards and break out of them is cool looking to me. I may look into picking up a Gilded pack as well.

The artwork on the deck is beautiful, but I'm just not a fan of the marking system.
I don't have strong enough eyesight or quick enough math skills for this system.

I loved the first version of Gliders and didn't think they could be improved very much. The new V2 version achieved it!

The new designs on the Jacks, Queens, Kings, and Jokers are way better. The box looks and feels great. And the cards themselves handle really nicely.

The marking system isn't as easy to read as some other decks, but they're very clear about that in the ad copy. Once you know the system it's pretty easy to see, but it's next to impossible for a layperson to catch it. The claims of holding up to the riffle test are true!

These cards are the best I've seen in terms of hidden marks that are near impossible to detect. I own the Penguin Marked Cards which are also excellent. They differ from Gliders in two ways. One they are easier to read than Gliders. No calculations involved. You know in an instant what the card is. But there is more of a chance of getting "caught" of using marked cards if a spectator examines carefully, or just happens to see the mark. Maybe a rare event, but nonetheless more possible. Not so with Gliders. However, Gliders take a bit of calculation (hence not quite as instant) and they do take practice (at least for this user). I run through the deck every day, and still make an occasional mistake. If you put in the time they are great. Basically both are good, more a question of what you are more comfortable with, ease of use, or level of possible detection.
