Effect: Richard Turner not only knows how to handle a deck, but he also knows what makes an effective deck of cards. Richard has combined his unprecedented card handling skills with knowledge gained as a touch analyst for the United States Playing Card Company (USPCC) to design and produce an unparalleled deck of cards. “I know what manipulators are looking for in a deck,” says Richard, “it’s the same qualities that I look for. It’s those same qualities that I used to design Gambler’s Playing Cards.”
Richard spared no details in preparing for the Gambler’s Playing Cards. He chose the top of the lined paper produced by the USPCC, the Bee stock; used a thickness of paper that is designed to have lasting power, yet remain flexible; utilized a white border to make them magician friendly; checked by recognized authorities for one-way issues; and most importantly, followed the casino dictate of having the cards done in a traditional cut.
One shuffle with the Gambler’s Playing Cards and you will know instantly that they were made with the true card aficionado in mind.
