Tweet,

While I spend money like I really have it. I do not think that these are reasonably priced. the Least expensive is $50 and that is on sale from $80. while they are very nice I see nothing reasonable in their price. But that is just me.

Oh please!...You always get what you pay for...you are a dreamer. I have a nice bridge in New York that you may be interested in and some nice ocean front land in Fla. Please do not compare a starting price of a car that sells for upwards of $65,000 to a container for your deck of cards that sells for $80.

Acesover,

These are obviously something you are not that interested in. Other people are interested in one of a kind quality products like this. No need to put them down by calling them gullible. $50 is not surprising for a unique product like this. I am sure he is not selling these by the hundreds. These are specialty items and should be priced more then the massed produced items out there.

Kammagic,

On the contrary. I was very interested in one of these cases. However at a discounted price of $50 from a suggested retail price of $80 I stick by my initial post:

However someone posted that in terms of price you "ALWAYS " get what you pay for. Then went on to use an analogy of a Cheap Porsche. Not beating a dead horse here, but how can you compare a company such as Porsche known throughout the world for quality with a card case manufactured by someone realitively unknown. Anyway if you read my original post it states that they are very nice but I see nothing reasonable in their price. I stand by this statement. Also if you read my last words.....BUT THIS IS JUST ME.

I think they are very beautiful but I just took his statement of "reasonably priced" as incorrect. Are they beautiful? Yes. Would I want one? Yes. Is the price reasonable? I would have to say no.

Acesover,

I think they are reasonably priced so the statement "reasonably priced" coming from me is a correct statement.

So what I am getting from this is some people think these are reasonably priced and you and maybe others think they are not. I don't see a problem with that. Wether the price is too high is relative to who is buying them. I feel their price is justified because they are a unique one of a kind quality item. If they were available at Wal-Mart then yes I would think they were over priced. But from what I have seen this is the only place to get these. Which translates into a higher price.

Price is as beauty and is in the eye or in this case in the mind of the purchaser. The more I think about it I am coming around to your way of thinking. As an example Years ago I was an avid Trap Shooter...having said that all trap shooters have a pouch in which they hold their unfired shells as well as their fired shells worn around their waist. You could purchase one of these for around $10 to $15 at most Shooters stores. Well to make a long story short I had a Leather Crafatsman make me one for $75...so I see your point.

Actually, the prices are in Canadian dollars, so that $50 card case would only cost you $45.00 or so.

But there are questions here. Does this case actually protect the cards any better than, say a regular card case with a Porper card clip? Does it hold the cards in the card case or loose? If the cards are loose, can they get caught in the opening of the case?

Very nice. I certainly wouldn't want to play poker with the person who pulls his cards out of a case like that.

Canadian money too. For you Americans, you are getting a nice little discount.

Can you custom ingrave these?

They would certainly make a nice gift for those magicians on you Christmas list.

Look at the gallery photos it shows the cards in their card box inside these cases. I have an attached photo.

Beautiful cases. They certainly would make a great gift. Depending on the routine, something like this can arouse suspicion when performing magic. I, personally, would attached some sort of back story to the case itself.
Just my thoughts.
