Does anyknows the gaffed deck the magicians used from the above video? The deck where he shrank the deck case to a small one and eventually shrank the entie deck except the selection and then restore the entie deck back to the orginal size execpt the selection.

I think this is will make a nice opener to start in a close up magic.

Thanks for your reply and recommendation.

That has all solved my doubts and curiousity.

In fact you have to buy twoo separate effects:
1) John Cornelius: The Shrinking Card Case
2) Mike Powers: Diminishing Returns

But they are worth it! They play so wonderful together. As if they were created for each other.

But I don't think the presentation at this video makes it justice. It could be presented as a very interesting demonstration of cards with strange properties.
I have made a post with a lengthy desciption of my presentation. Do a Café search for Diminishing Returns

Just one little detail here: when the chosen normal size card is replaced in the row of small size cards, place it above a picture card. When you ribbon spread the cards to show the chosen card shrunken between the normal size cards, its smaller size will be shown more visibly on the colored background of the court card.
