If I remember (I own it too... been awhile since I watched it) he got cards from loftus. They are the cheapest decent cards if you are willing to buy 2 gross (288) at a time.
All the other magic dealers can sell you bulk cards as well.

Dons sourse for the worms, afaik is no longer in business. Nowsalgic toys sells them, they have really nice packaging for them, but they are a little bit pricey.

All of Don's published work is available at Lybrary.com, here's a link:

https://www.lybrary.com/search.php?keywords=don+driver

I'd highly recommend his work on the Sven Pitch, but I'd also recommend S David Walker's DVD, Andy Nyman's pitch (available on the Get Nyman DVD) and also Mark Lewis's pitch (available through Ronnie, if you ask him nicely and cross his palm with silver).

There's a million and one different pitches available for the Svens, try one and see if it works for you!

Obviously, don't actually sell any. Every pack you sell is one less than I can sell and it's hard enough to make a living in this business without new people getting into it - even if they are in different countries!

Hey Phil could you touch a little more on Andy Nyman's pitch?
This is new to me. I've never heard of his pitch and would like to know more and see if it's worth getting.. thanks!

I think it was 2-3 years ago, I was searching all over YouTube for Svengali pitch's (I already own Don's) and I found a couple that I liked.

This one always seemed charming, proper, and Christmas-esque to my American ear: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89guTbp3UYg

And of course, Mark Lewis has a few very smooth pitches too https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCliQ3RL......elf_id=0

Good luck!

FTR, Don taught me the Pen Pitch, the Sven Pitch and the Jam Auction back in Las Vegas 1980!
He and I spent many a day working on the craft.
Later, we took a cross country road trip to Boston.

I constructed a small wooden trunk on rollers that folded-out into a full sized joint with built-in table, lights, sound, flash and sign of FREE SAMPLES!
I adapted the pen pitch to the Acrobatic Matchbox with bonus Montes and a “Rammy Sammy Cigarette Vanisher” too. (A pull made by a rolled tube of paper stapled to a cut rubber band!) A Don Driver trick.
I believe the Rammy Sammy pitch has never seen print.
Named, no doubt after 1930s magician Sam Ramo.

I made pockets full back then.
One open market in Denver I made $700 in a day! ($2150 today!)
A fair in Apache Junction I walked away with $75 gross! (Still, $230 for the day, not bad.)
All $5 at a time!

Peace
Docc

And my Sven Pitch changed a lot over the years so it became my own 😉
