The Magic Apple conjures a Houdini card deck

The Magic Apple in Studio City, CA -- which bills itself as the "earth's largest magic shop" and just happens to be right down the street from me -- have teamed with the United States Playing Card Company to create an all new deck of cards they've christened the Houdini Deck.

The card backs features original Houdini art by graphic designer Steve Mitchell and images of Houdini on the two jokers. The deck is nicely textured, making the handling excellent.

Also included are instructions on how to perform Dai Vernon's famous "Card Trick that Fooled Houdini." Richard Kaufman and Stephen Minch consulted on the instructions which are printed on their own card. The idea for the Houdini Deck came from Anthony Gift.

The Houdini Deck is a Magic Apple exclusive and is available at the Magic Apple store, via their website, and on eBay. Tell them you heard about it on WILD ABOUT HARRY.

Thanks to Joe Fox for the tip.
