In the Card Trick Wallet you have 10 compartments. In each compartment max. 5 cards.

Wow, what a great website!

You buy sports card sleeves and boxes at Walmarts. They are thin plastic sleeves which can hold 4 poker size cards. I store my gaff cards in them and carry them with me for some packet tricks. You can buy 50 sleeves in a box for around six dollars. They are with sports cards and "magic" card games, in a section in the front of the store near the cash registers. You can write with a Sharpy what is inside for ease of use.

Joshua Jay's Pro Carrier Case is great! I carry ACE by Richard Sanders, an invisible deck, a ring, a few half dollars, and rubberbands. (Normal deck of cards is in my pocket.)
I'm sure you could fit around 3-4 packet tricks in it...

You know I took your advice on this wallet like a year ago when I was looking for something to carry packet tricks. Not only has it worked out perfect for me so far, your idea elicited a thoughtful kind of "ohhh" from a visiting magician (an Army Colonel on leave) who saw me grab spin doctor out of it. He commented on how that was a good solution to the carrying of packet tricks.

Look up Aluma-wallet XL http://www.amazon.com/Aluma-Wallet-XL-In......08JGGD4Y perfect size and holds several packets (I have 6 of them because I got them a year ago on clearance at Walmart for $5 ea) The hinges have a tendency to pop out if you overfill though (I just wrap the wallet in a rubberband at that point) Great for storing them also so the gaffs don't get mixed up with regular cards in the magic drawer.

I have the Jerry O'Connell packet trick wallet which is hip sized and not too bad. It also has 2 slits for coins.
The Large JoL and my Kaps wallet both have plenty of slots for packet tricks too.

If you are just looking for a nice and simple wallet, I love to use ones I've just bought of ebay, look around to find ones like this:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Magic-Leather-Ch......19871681

I find that they still look really classy, and they have lasted me quite a while, and they are very cheap! They can store to packet tricks, and I love to use it to start my tricks just by asking which trick they want to see, face up with x, or face down with two lines, and the I close the wallet, open it the other way and they have switched sides! Sounds simple, but some peoples reactions are priceless! Then you know you have a good audience for your next trick...

I found these beautiful metal cigarette cases that are spring loaded and open one handed in magical style. They're a bit heavy but with the club, hearts, space and diamond repeat pattern inside and out it is just perfect for poker sized packet tricks. The spring loaded clip inside keeps your NFW gimmick from being a problem. You can carry second packet trick on the other side. The clip keeps two sets separated. I carry Poker Deck Rejects and 3 Card Monte in mine. I sell limited supply of the metal cases and unlimited supply of PDR on ebay if interested. See video of the carrying case in action:

I use the original leather Heirloom Wallet in which I keep my own adapted version of Kollosal Killer. In addition, I keep another four packet tricks in the inside card slots. If I want to carry around a new one then an old one has to go. But 5 routines in total is usually more than enough for me.

I have several of these. Quality look and they serve as a mini-himber if you really need to use that feature.
