I remember looking at a video for jumbo card manipulation. I will check on Magic Smith. It was a The Magic of _____ (some middle east country). I think the manipulation routine was called blizzard. I found it... just before I was going to post this. I just wanted to build up some excitment. It's called The Magic of Hungary Video with Multiple Artists... Search on Magic Smith. Then after you get it pm me with a review.

Joćo Miranda,

I've posted a 90 second clip of me at the magic video depot:

The Jumbo's are Tony Clark while the cards in manipulation are Blue back Bee.
Maybe that will help a little.

Thanks a lot Randy.

What I actually want is jumbos to make simple productions, just like Peter Marvey...

Ah! you want a ready to perform item that duplicates Marvey's Jumbo Card production. His jumbo card production is patented as are all of his creations. It's his method alone and not available as a stock item.

I've created my own and encourage you to do the same. Research Black Art using your own black clothes as a backdrop and body loads as I've done. You may create the next big production method. The possibilities are really exciting and endless! :)

Joćo Miranda,

If you are looking for Jumbo Bicycles, try Hank Lee. I've purchased regular Jumbo cards (Red/Blue) at $15.00 a deck.
You can then devise your own method of production.

He produces those jumbo cards through million dollar production. You can see the line of the cards at certain times. Marvey is very skilled but painful to watch.

No one understands me..... :o:

I want good jumbo cards which are EASY to backpalm, not the Bicycles ones....

Joao,

You may try Piatnik Brand Jumbo Cards (Made In Austria).

I believe you "literally" want to backpalm the cards using a thinner stock card such as Marvey or Nielson extra thin cards.
Even with poker size cards, manipulators spend years fighting that occasional "flash".
You may try some adaptations from 'Jumbo Card Manipulation' by Dariel Fitzkee,
or 'Magic By Jan Torell' (published in 1975).

You are looking for the cheapest Jumbos you can find. They should bend easily I bought a few on ebay for about $7 a deck. They are not Bikes.
