Yes, they do look very cool! Smile

David Regal found a great use for these cards in his effect "The Half Deal" which can be found on his "Tricks! The Magic of David Regal" DVD.

I haven't used them in any card effects but have played poker with them.

Take care,
Rich

See through cards sure must make the "guess a card" effects a lot easier.

These cards are readily available here in Florida at TARGET stores. They are clear Bicycle Brand and come in a cool clear case as well.

I have a pack of those they are a little weird to preform with, but they make good flourishing cards.

I have a pack of similar cards that I purchased from Target. I don't know how the ones from Magicbox are, but the cards that I have are not too great. They stay stiff for a while and don't fan or handle well. Try them out and see how they are.

I have never seen clear plastic cards that are as flexible as paper ones. Books a Million sells a clear card (quite pricey)but I do not know if they are Bikes.

These look like they have a little texture to them, like linen... so hopefully they are the same as bikes, only plastic... I want a pack either way! does this company only sell these exclusive, or is it possible to find some of these in stores?

ps: I bought a brik of seconds, and I think there better quality than the regular bikes we get now. They seemed thinner, and maybe even cut BETTER... I don't understand why this site says they aren't that great. I would rather seconds more than any other at the moment HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! -Jesse

Apparently you can buy em in florida target stores...

here in england we don't have target stores, regular bikes in norwich are 3 quid and that's all you can get.

I actually found one shop selling em for a tenner!

Asda sell bikes for £1.49 a deck. There must be a asda somewhere near you.

They're made of plastic, most playing cards are made of paper.

There is an asda indeed and I thought they may have cos they are basically walmart, however I've never noticed any in there, ill have to look next time, although I rarely go in there its on the other side of the city really and virtually inaccessable without a car, which I don't have cos I'm 16, but my parents soemtimes go. Ill have a look when I'm there next time.
