I was surprised Walmart didn't have them. What store has them? Any idea?

Not the large print but the oversized cards.

I've actually seen them in both the toy section and with their other cards at Walgreens. They're not the Jumbo Bikes, they're some off brand. The cards at Walgreens are usually at the end of an aisle in racks with dice; the handful of large decks were in kind of a bin below the racks. In the toys they were just hanging on the wall with everything else.

Large cards can be found at the dollar store, surprisingly for a dollar. I grabbed two decks, blue & red. When I needed an even larger card I went to Alpha Graphics and had one made.
You know why don't act naive.

I, too, have found the dollar stores the best place to get inexpensive, large size cards. Not as big or sturdy as Bicycle jumbos, but great for parlor work. And it's not painful to tear them up or experiment with them.

They are not always there, so it means checking periodically. But then you have a chance to find so much more!

I've checked every dollar store in my area and every Walgreen's and CVS with no luck. Smile

If you just need a few cards, like a Jumbo packet trick, just scan and photoshop whatever you need. Print it on card stock and laminate them if you like. I have some standup card routines I made up on 8 1/2 X 11 card stock, they are visual as Hell.

"The New York Papers," Mark Twain once said,"have long known that no large question is ever really settled until I have been consulted; it is the way they feel about it, and they show it by always sending to me when they get uneasy. "

Here's a link to the ones I mentioned on the Walgreen's site. They show to be sold out online but are available in some stores with a search function to check your local stores.

Are these US cards or those made in China? Anyone bought them before?

Thanks, Bob. That is certainly good news as I use many of them.

It was a real disappointment to some magic dealers who loaded up thinking that they were gone forever. Now, you want to be sure that you are getting new stock rather than old stock. Playing cards, unlike you and me, don't get better with age.

Thanks for the tips too, Bob. Of course I would prefer the new stocks. And I have seen real yellowish card stocks sold by dealers in my part of the world.

Bob - I can't find anything about this. The Bicycle web site doesn't list the 8082, and I can't find any dealer that's selling them or even saying they're coming back??

Are the new stocks being printed now or they are already available?

Dollar stores and when in Vegas, any of those little stores.

You can also find them at gas stations from time to time.
