Topic: Best Resource for low cost Svengali Decks for Pitching...

Hail One and All...

I contacted D. Robbins...but was wondering if there are other sources for The Svengali...I was told Royal Magic might be a source as well. But I'm hoping there may be other sources aside from the two already mentioned.

Thank You...Continued Success,
Dr. Dan

Try https://www.loftus.com/ or http://www.magicmakersinc.com/

I think loftus is much better.Get their catalog number SV0001 that's two gross (288 decks) they come colated with extra drictions and a nice color sleeve.


I haven't checked price in a while but they should come out to about 70 cents a deck.

Robbins carries the Royal Magic decks, which are manufactured/distributed by FUN Inc. in Chicago. Depending on where you are located, you might save on shipping by using Robbins (from NJ) or FUN (from Chicago).

The Royal pitch decks are fine -- they are not collated, but use good card stock with accurately cut key cards, and they have good instructions packed with the cards. The Royal Magic upgraded single decks are collated, have instructions packed with the deck and look very snazzy with a colorful sleeve around each deck. However, at about twice the cost of the pitch decks, the single upgraded deck is way too expensive for pitching, it's probably better as a magic shop item. I sold many grosses of the Royal decks and was well satisfied with them. I didn't use Loftus only because I was also ordering other pitch items through Robbins, and it was simpler and easier to have Robbins handle the entire order.

I also agree with Don that the Loftus decks are excellent. I have seen a sample, and they are good quality cards, with accurately cut key cards. They are probably a bit less expensive than the Royal Magic decks, too. SETH
