As I mentioned previously, I purchased the rights and all the remaining inventory of Obie O’Brien’s product line. Since that time, I was also able to license the video footage of him performing and teaching his three marketed products, from Rob Stiff’s Magic Makers who produced his video, so you will be able to get personal video instructions when purchasing the routines.
Before I start re-branding and manufacturing the three routines, I wanted to offer you the original stock. The first two items are jumbo card routines that were printed for Obie by Ton Onosaka’s Magic Land. I will be offering them at their original price.
This week you can get what is likely his favorite creation. If you ever saw Obie perform at a magic convention you would have seen him perform his Kolossal Kolor Kards. This was his go to routine for formal close-up and parlor shows.
►Kolossal Kolored Kards:
It is a quick packet trick using jumbo cards and a surprise ending.
The basic routine is of cards impossibly turning face up and face down and at the end all the cards are shown to have different colored backs.

►Playing Card Press:
Available in gold or silver tone.
Playing card presses have been around for more than a century. Early playing cards were very expensive and were made of poor-quality paper that would easily warp after a few uses.
To protect the cards and keep them flat these types of card presses were invented. As the quality of cards improved the demand for these presses dwindled. Modern card presses are used by card players who live in very humid climates and magicians who prefer using playing cards that are completely flat.
Get one, or both: HERE
►Bicycle Rainbow Cards:
This is a custom deck of Bicycle, Air Cushion finish cards that were printed by the USPCC using some of their proprietary card backs that date back to the 1800s. The cards are printed using different colors to create a Rainbow Deck.
Comes with a 52-card deck with different backs and colors, three double backed cards, a Joker reveal card, and access to video instructions.

Stay happy, Meir
PS: I was supposed to perform at Comix at the Mohegan Sun Casino this weekend but had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances. I will be back on May 1 to appear on Jim Spinnato’s Stand-Up Comedy Magic Show.
