Powerball 60 won't fit in any wallet I own, and so I'm considering folding the tickets in half. Has anyone done this, and if so, has the fold caused any unnecessary wear and tear on the tickets?

Thanks in advance for your input!

If you fold them you could crease or crack the print and the numbers be hard to read. Some one migth post and say its fine but I wouldnt. You could look for a new wallet. why not get a card to wallet.
Enjoy your magic,

and let others enjoy it as well!

Thanks, Yellowcustard, I was thinking the same thing. Folding the tickets could cause trouble. I guess I needed to hear someone else say that. I appreciate you taking the time!

It may be a good idea to keep them in a paper envelope, inside a vinyl sleeve. That way they'll be protected, the print won't adhere to the vinyl and the vinyl will protect them from moisture. Tyvek could be substituted for vinyl.

I asked Bill Abbott, and here's what he has to say on the subject:

"I originally had to fold a prototype set of tickets to fit them in a wallet I had. Although it doesn't alter the working of the effect I found that having to unfold the tickets during the performance was a hassle and the tickets aged faster. Eventually they started to tear along the fold. I bought a new wallet so I didn't have to fold the tickets anymore."

Question answered. Thanks Bill!
