Two days ago Murphy’s Magic in the US announced a new Bicycle Deck. The Mandolin Deck has new artwork (see below) – but it looks a lot like the Bicycle design at a glance. Murphy’s will be making it their standard design for all products using gaff cards in the future – will this mark the end of Bicycle Cards as we know them?
You can read Murphy’s full announcement here. As usual we will let you know when we see them starting to hit the UK.
It will be interesting to see how this affects the magic world – and also whether the Phoenix Deck becomes more or less significant as a result. Watch this space…
Update – 16/8/10 – now available at MagicShop.co.uk for £2.50 – Bicycle Mandolin Deck (they also stock Invisible Decks and Stripper Decks in Mandolin backs).
