Are there any gaff or regular decks that include this?

I need a blank-backed Joker for an effect I'm working on, and am trying to think if the gaff I need is included in a gaff or regular deck that might already be in my collection.

Since it is just a Joker, it might make a funnier bit to have you go looking in the deck for a joker, and not finding one, but finding a blank-both-sides card, draw a joker on one side. It can be just a smiley face with a funny hat and the word Joker printed under his face. If the audience is supposed to think it has a back, use roughing fluid on the blank back so you can attach it to a random card just to be able to show the hand drawn Joker has a back.

Thanks for contributing. But unfortunately for the effect I'm doing I need the face to be an actual Joker, and a hand-drawn card won't work, because it must look like a normal card, not like a potential gaff.

Furthermore, starting with a card that's blank on both sides will kill the effect I have in mind, because the first time I show the blank side of the card it is intended to generate real surprise.

Phoenix comes with a blank back joker http://www.card-shark.de/iphone/showitem......rtID=112
As well as bicycle blank back decks (some have 2).

Just depends on your deck preference.

And you can make one by splitting a regular one and a blank card.If you have some rubber cement in hand it's very easy.
