The Suave Deceiver
In collaboration with Potter & Potter and Pitchford Entertainment, Media and Magic, our sister company, Art of Play, has produced a limited edition deck of playing cards to celebrate the life and career of Richard Valentine Pitchford (1895-1973).
Under the stage name of Cardini, Pitchford's flawless sleight of hand, effortless charm and infectious humor garnered him the adulation of fellow magicians and international audiences.
The deck is a modern poker-sized replica of the special Peau Doux playing cards Cardini used in performance of his legendary nightclub act "The Suave Deceiver." Special features include a vintage-inspired tuck box, letterpress-printed with gold metallic ink and embossed typography, custom tax stamp, ace of spades, and matching jokers depicting a silhouette of Cardini.
