Did you ever get your answer? I'm looking for the same thing a decade plus later.

I remember Nebula Card; I used to own it. Wouldn’t be surprised if it's no longer available, as it was decades ago.

It came in bridge-size cards, which may sort of indicate its age (way back when packet tricks were commonly bridge rather than poker sized, and Fox Lake rather than Bicycle backed).

However, you can do the Nebula Card effect using the gaffs from other, more currently available packet tricks.

I believe the packet trick known as “Done With Mirrors” will work for Nebula Card. Of course, the difference is that you conclude with mirror-surfaced rather than photo-surfaced cards at the climax.

Basically, to do Nebula Card, you need five cards: one ungaffed, and four with odd backs (photos for Nebula Card per se, but could also be mirrors, eye exam charts, different colors/designs, whatever).

My set consisted of:

1. standard-backed Ace of Hearts
2. photo-backed Ace of Hearts
3. photo-backed Ace of Clubs
4. photo-backed Ace of Diamonds
5. photo-backed Ace of Spades

Of course, it needn’t be all Aces; you could go with all Kings or all Queens or all Jacks.

And the standard-backed card could be any of the four suits.

Hope this helps.

(If you spring for a custom card gaff maker, your gaff cards can be photos of anything you supply. I later went that route myself, using photos of my significant other to create a very special, uniquely personalized trick to perform on a big anniversary date.)
