If you purchase a "Special Assortment" deck (available at most retailers or online), it usually includes some BF, BB, DB (R), DB (B), DB (R/B), DF, and DF (SBS). I think they may also have a few double blanks included.

You won't get too many of the SBS cards with this deck, but the variety of cards is worth it to me.

I bet these are not USPCC Bicycle cards! Neither a card stock close to that.

I obtained a deck of DF cards from Taylor's Magic Shop
( http://www.taylorsmagicshop.com ) & they are very good quality. He may be able to find the same face ones you're after.

Agreed! This is the best gaffed deck for your money!

I could produce this deck for a reasonable price. Usually you should not get it allready printed in Bicycle quality.

If you are interested, please feel free to PM me.

I did not want to place prices but let´s talk about it:

The deck will be printed in Haicicle quality, not Bicycle.
Makes sense if there are no backs to be shown. The cards match the faces and the card stock. Only the finish is slightly different.

About the quality; Some well known magicians say about my vintage decks (that use the same card stock):
David Williamson: "The design is authentic and the quality is top notch."
Max Maven: "Top quality design and production, plus some very fertile gaffs. These cards are a delight."
The same says Jeff McBride: "The cards have an authentic look and feel. They handle beautifully and will add a touch of mystery and theatricality to your performance."
So you can be assured that you will get good quality, even if it does not comes from Bicycle.

Are 5 US$ shipping costs for worldwide shipping unreasonable, no matter how much you order? I do not think so. In worst case (more than 1 kg or 2 lbs) I have to pay up to 13 Euro that equals 18.50 US$ and only charge 5 US$ as a flat fee.

28 US$ for designing and 35 US$ for a custom printed deck should also be a reasonable price. As you will not get this kind of deck anywhere else then I think this price is EXTREMELY reasonable.

I calculated my prices in US$ when the exchange rate was at 1.40, then it got worse to 1.60 but I always stood with my prices, even if I lost 12.5% with every purchase. I think this was also very fair (now the dollar exchange rate is back to 1.42 so somehow "back to normal").

What do you think?

A deck of Bicycle DF's will contain a few SBS, a royal flush in diamonds IIRC.

Good for you, Card-Shark. I'm glad you're holding the line on prices.

I wasn't targeting your prices specifically, but the angst we feel here in America when trying to buy things from Europe in general.

I have been asked to perform Anniversary Waltz at the Hall where I work using the cards that they sell as souvenirs. The cards are Kemco brand and I am trying to find anyone who sells kemco brand or size double face cards.
Any suggestions?
The art of card splitting is over rated..have you ever tried to split a whole deck of cards?

Not me, sorry.

But ask CardMaker, he is excellent in card splitting.
