My dear Magi,

Does anyone know of a Christian dealer that sells Bicycle King of Hearts one way force decks? I been trying to find them without success. The various secular dealers I've inquired of won't promise the King of Hearts. I know you understand why I want that particular card. Smile

God bless,

Dave

I ran into a similar problem when I needed a Popeye forcing deck with a specific key card. Every magic shop I called was too busy to search through their stock on such a hunt. My solution? This may sound odd, but I went to ebay and started sending emails to the shops listed there telling them what I needed. Result? A smaller dealer found what I needed in a couple of days and now I'm using that deck in shows all the time.

If that fails, send me a PM. Believe it or not, when I dropped by my local brick & mortar magic shop looking for the needed key card deck, they didn't have it but they DID have a KH in stock. Yup. I snatched it up even though I didn't need it because I knew someone out there would.

Cheers,
Kerry

I suspect that when a dealer buys one way force decks, he oftern gets as a set 52 packs, each one different. I was blessed that when my regular magic shop owner bought a new shipment, I got to take the only KH deck.

Not much help I know but perhaps you can ask your local magic shop owner to keep the KH pack for you when he eventually gets a new shipment (for the future)
Many Blessings!!

Hi Dave:

First, I just noticed I called you "Daniel" on the other thread...sorry!

I don't know if he's a Christian dealer, but Neil Lester is the source for all kinds of cards. He can get anything you need. His website is http://www.cardsbymartin.com

Kerry,

Thanks very much. I'll try ebay and see what happens. I appreciate your deck offer. If you would please hold it for me that would be great!

Paul,

That’s how one dealer explained it to me as well. That’s why I inquired about Christian dealers who might stock KH decks as a regular offering.

Ron,

No problem, I answer to almost anything. Smile I forgot about Neil Lester’s site. He doesn’t have KH listed under forcing decks, but I may give him a call if I don’t have luck elsewhere.

Thanks for the input guys and God bless.

I highly recommend Cards By Martin. I needed a jumbo Pop Eyed Popper with a specific force card and he had no problem making one up for me. The quality is excellent. Best rough smooth work I've ever seen.

You could buy 52 decks of cards and end up with a force deck of each card.

Payne and Matt,

Thanks for the recommendation and suggestion. I'll admit I've considered the 52 deck solution. The price of gas compels me to find a cheaper solution at the moment.

My fantasy is to find a case of Bicycle blue backed KH 1 way forcing decks at a flea market for $9.99. I know, I know...but I can dream can't I?

I'll give the ebay option a few days to pan out...you never know!

Try Haines House of Cards in Cincinnati.
When I needed one they made it for me.

I have a blue backed King Of Hearts One Way Forcing Deck in. I am in the UK and the price is £7.50 (which with the current $/£ exchange rate works out quite high for you in the US).

In fact I can order a forcing deck in any individual card and back colour that you want.

Macbeth,

Thanks for the offer but I haven't given up looking in the U.S. just yet. Smile

Thanks everyone.

I got a good deal from a Café member that included a K of H silk.

God bless,

For future reference: I often do price matching using a web site called magicproshop. Their prices are really low and I use them with my B&M, Williams Magic, in Tucson. Anywho...Tonight I noticed that these decks are available there for $4.83. All orders over $20 are free shipping. I've never ordered from them so I don't know how good their service is, but the price sure seems right.

If you go to their site-mps, they have a link to Bicycle Forcing Decks.

Be blessed!

I've ordered from their site a few times and I have received great service from them. They actually sent me a pack of M&M's once with one of my orders. I had a few question about a product and they responded within 24 hours. The shipping was very fast as well. I will have to check out their Forcing Decks. Thanks for that info Preston.

Oddly, most of the forcing decks were $6.50, but some; such as the KH, were $4.83.

Thanks for the tips guys. Since my last post I discovered that The Ambitious Card has force decks you can order by card. The KH deck is only $5.40.
