Blue Keepers


Keepers are the lighthouse and saviour to your work with cards.

Conceived by Adam Wilber and brought ashore by Oban Jones, Keepers are possibly the rider-backs of the future.

A beautifully classic design that stays quiet while your magic does the talking.

Created with the worker in mind, Keepers feel spectacular right out of the box.

Opening a standard deck is a chore. 20 minutes are instantly wasted breaking them in and smoothing the edges. A nightmare for any worker.

You want a deck to instantly feel comfortable in your hands, as an extension of you.

With stock as thin as a grain of sand, and a feel as soft as the splash of a gentle ocean wave. Keepers set a new expectation for what an everyday deck should feel like.

Designed with the most common deck in mind. The Keeper Deck is an advancement of a superb classic.

The backs color was specifically chosen to invite trust, and go un-noticed by your audiences. Perfectly complimented by the recognizable pips and faces of a standard deck, featured on the fronts.

With the only tweaks being a custom Keeper Ace of Spades and the faces of the Jack and Queen of Clubs. An everlasting tribute to the creators' beautiful Wife.

"Seek not a lighthouse, greater than the human mind"

Throw out those blunt-cut bikes. These are Keepers.

I love how they feel, I am also planning making them my standard playing cards (pls make some bicycle like gaffs)

These Blues are a definite keeper!

I’ll admit, I bought these as a way to fill out my order. Plus, I did want to try them, eventually. Anyway, I’m very glad I did. I’m not a collector, but I do love the feel in my hands. That’s what I care about. Can I use these to perform card magic? Absolutely!


Don?t listen to the haters. I?ve bought up plenty a decks making claims such as what is being said here about the Keepers. Hands down these are the best handling cards right out of the box for the under $20 price range.

Anyone here that hasn?t left a 5 star review complaining about the stickiness of the Keepers or the cards not holding up...... LIES - it is 100% their fault for not taking care of the cards by either dropping them in hard/dirty areas, handling with dirty/wet hands, or exposing them to excessive moisture. I have 3 open decks of these that I have been beating on for 2-3 months, and they feel the same as the day they had arrived.

Do yourself a favor, if you haven?t already, and at least try these out!


I bought a deck on sale for 4 bucks and that is my only complaint. I only bought 1 when they were on sale. These cards feel great immediately out of the box. Adam is not exaggerating when he says that. As to the custom court I think they look great and enjoy telling people why they are different. 100% nailed it.


I didn't expect to handle one of the smoothest decks of cards when I opened the box. It's so unassuming to the naked eye, but a great tool that I can't recommend enough. Pick up a few of these if you have the chance




Design of the cards are really great! Thanks Adam wilber for creating quality content with workers in mind.


Two words: love them


These cards are great! Thin, smooth and durable. They're very different than Bicycle as there is room in the deck box for more cards. I have yet to be questioned about the back. Use them for every occasion. Can't imagine a better playing card.

First purchase from ellusionist and I must say I'm blown away. These will be my deck of choice for some time to come. Only company I'll buy cards from.
