Does anyone know where you can buy some of those cheap plastic wallets that come with some packet tricks?
They are great for protecting your cards.
Thanks for any help.

I use to get them from DAYTONA MAGIC SHOP. You know you can make them out of duct tape.

I am not sure if this is something you can use echojet, but I use these to store my packet tricks. I love them because I can write on the outside of the envelopes, such as the name of the trick. Smile Hope this is helpful.

Some mom and pop drugstores sell these little wallets for people carrying credit cards etc. I've bought several in the past from a local mom and pop. However, if you're not near such a store, Gary's link directly above sells them for a little over a buck on ebay. Can't hardly beat it. Lynn

If you live where there is a big Mall you can probably find them in any big luggage store.

Thank you so much for all of your suggestions and help.
I did find a magic supplier in SC that sells a dozen for around six dollars.
Thanks again

Echo, is that SC as in South Carolina? Whereabouts? I'm just wondering if it's near where I live.

Baseball card sleeves can also be used to store and protect playing cards. You can write on them to identify the contents.

Here's the first thing that came up from a google search: http://www.bagsunlimited.com/c-540-single-card-sleeves.aspx

They're a lot cheaper than those card wallets that tricks come in.

Hope this was helpful.

Yep, Columbia. I was hoping for a magic shop near me, but no deal. Bummer. If they have a walk-in store, maybe I can go there when I visit my cousin in Blythewood.

Funny thing: That site's Personal Product Predictor ("guaranteed by our web geek to be something you may need") tells me I probably need a substitution trunk and a pirate wig. Smile

(Sounds like something from the cartoon "Pinky and the Brain." "Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Pinky?" "I think so, Brain -- but where are we gonna get a substitution trunk and a pirate wig?")

Check out any baseball card and/or sports memorabilia shop. They carry nice plastic packs that are perfect for holding playing cards. Some carry only a few cards, some carry more for multiple packet tricks if you want. They're a bargain.

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Do you also plan to use these plastic sleeves while performing?
Personally I think it looks really cheap...

You gents might want to check out the following thread posted in the "workers" forum. It's about where to find a hardshell wallet similar to the one John Bannon carries his packet tricks in as seen in his "Bullet Party" DVD's.

http://www.themagiccafe.com/forums/viewt......rum=2&33

The larger dimension hard shell wallets have 7 pockets that will hold about 5 or 6 cards in each. It's a great solution for carrying multiple packet tricks plus extra gaffed cards. Your cards are protected from being bent, it's semi-water proof, and will out last dozens of the vinyl wallets.
