Although I have used card clips/guards at times and I own a bunch of different ones, I use them mostly as markers to distinguish different decks for different routines. I also use them when flying, as I feel they keep my cards from warping. But if you live in a humid area, you probably can’t live without them.
These are Marvel themed guards that can also be used as a tie-in to superhero type patter. I made an unboxing video so you can see exactly what you are getting.
You will also see some Obake coin sets below which I thought would take more than a month to replenish. We got lucky because Seo was generous in selling us most of the ones he had left in the US.
►Marvel Card Guard Set:
These are the first two Marvel Card Guard and gaffed deck sets.
The metal card guard that is included has a reproduction of the back design on one side and an image of the character on the other. It also has six spots that can be used to perform the Jack Kent Tillar Blister Effect with suites and some numbers. In addition to the card guard, you get a gimmicked deck of cards that has been custom designed to include many images of the specific Marvel character.
Black Panther Cards And Guard Set: In addition to the branded card guard, you get a matching “invisible Deck.”
Spider-Man Cards And Guard Set: In addition to the branded card guard, you get a matching marked cards.

►Marvel Multiverse Of Magic Sets:
Fantasma Magic negotiated an exclusive license to release many Marvel themed magic products. These are the first two magic sets in the series.
What makes them special is the beautiful packaging. The box is designed to look like a magic book with a magnetic lid (as pictured) and is meant to sit on a bookshelf when not in use. Could very well end up being a collectible.
Volume 1 Book 1: Doctor Strange: Includes five marvel themed magic tricks and a booklet with around 100 simple tricks and stunts and access to video instructions.
Volume 1 Book 2: Spider-Man: Includes five marvel themed magic tricks and a booklet with around 100 simple tricks and stunts and access to video instructions.

►Obake Quarter Set:
Kreis is best known for his exceptionally powerful magnetic coins that can be used for some incredible seeming magic. The coins are so strong that they can attract each other through your hand, a deck of cards, or even through most tables.
“Obake” means ghost in Japanese, and this “ghost” coins set allows you to do some clean and impossible looking routines that cannot be done with other similar gimmicks.
The set includes two super magnetic quarters and a matching expanded shell that are made using real US Quarters. For some of the routines you will need some extra real US Quarters.

A routine right out of Meir Yedid’s professional stage and parlor acts. One he has been performing for most of his career. This is a quick version of the bill repeat plot that is logical, self-working, and has a powerful “applauds cue” ending. The brilliant part of the method is that the big finale serves as the secret gimmick throughout the routine. The routine ends with a flash unfold that produces the gimmick to great applauds.
It is completely self-contained, packs small (fits in a wallet or envelope), always ready to perform, ideal for stage and platform shows, a perfect Emcee routine and can even be a hit in family and children’s shows.
