Bicycle 1900 - Blue
What would a deck of cards look like if it survived over a century?
Two world wars, nineteen presidents, the Titanic’s maiden voyage, man’s first steps on the moon, McDonald’s selling its first burger, new Coke, Woodstock, and countless other historic events.
The Bicycle 1900s Deck looks like it’s been weathered and abused, exposed to the elements, left to experience every second for over a hundred years.
But these 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.
The faultless follow-up to the ever popular 1800s deck, the 1900s deck is full of secrets and history.
Available in blue Bicycle Rider Back only, you'll quickly understand why these cards set the new standard when you start using them yourself.
Just like the 1800s, the 1900s deck is full of secrets and history. Dis-arming your spectators with the unique design, you’ll stay one step ahead of them at all times.
Lying within the wear and tear of the 1900s, is a marking system that is practically invisible to the untrained eye. Only those who know the secret to this deck can unlock the markings on the back of the cards.
You'll quickly understand why these cards set the new standard when you start using them yourself.
Grab a piece of history.
Everyone remembers how they got into magic and many of us share the same story.
Our Grandfather, usually quiet, smoking a cigarette in his favorite chair, gets up and walks to an old mahogany cupboard. Pulling out the drawer, he rummages around and dusts off a weathered, stained deck that looks like it has stories to tell.
He shuffles for the first time in 10 years, but somehow, the cards don't evade him. This isn't the first, the tenth of even the hundredth time he's held these cards... He has complete control.
Then, from this unassuming deck comes the best magic trick you've ever seen in your life. The first magic trick you've ever experienced.
There's something more mysterious about an old object conjuring up miracles. It seems more authentic.
Years later, you're standing in front of an audience, about to perform and your patter begins. Your Grandfather showed you your first magic trick and this was the deck he used.
A brand new deck of Bicycle 1900's is introduced, establishing itself as more than a prop. It's now a character in your performance.
Your audience, enthralled by the cocktail of nostalgia and magic, suspects nothing.
They hear the words, they see the deck and they believe.
Initially attracted to these because of the authentic aged and distressed design appropriate for certain routines, I’m now hooked on them as a marked deck, expanding the range of effects I’ll use them for. The marking system is virtually invisible, and not easily mastered, but worth the effort to learn. Better yet, these handle and faro beautifully, and so far hold up as well as any deck.
Great for for a different kind of colour change
I love the style of this deck. Of course it has the typical quality of cards sold by Ellusionist, but the look of these cards is the perfect set up for my presentation: "I found these Cards in my grandfathers old sea chest . . . " and the magic begins!
These cards Are great. I want to get a couple more decks when out and about. People love them that have commented on the cards
Bought these specifically to make my performance of Heritage as strong as possible. Highly Recommended! The cards are absolutely beautiful with some hidden gems built in.
I love these cards so much. They handle well and look amazing. A must have for any Mystery Performer or Period Performer. My only problem is the gaff that comes with it. Wish it was a double back blue card not a double back blue to red. Time to put my card spitting skills to the test. Over all I'm extremely happy with these cards .
Great cards only wish I could have got the 1800s pack
I collect these, so I don’t open them. Therefore I’m forced to focus on the outside and the attention to detail on these is amazing.
Easy to handle and i love the look.
These cards are, as expected, amazing. They look great (just as shown in the pictures) and they handle just as well. I DEFINITELY recommend these cards to normal people just for card games and magicians alike. Bottom line - these are fantastic cards.
