Deck Reviews! / [TXT] Murphys Signature NOCs
« Last post by philipsw on Today at 01:14:12 PM »
I love the sideways tuck cases which seem increasingly prevalent these days.  In many ways this is a classic NOC deck - minimalist design with inherent elegance.  The Murphys branding doesn't get in the way, and I love the stripes inside the case. They were my first set of NOCs to handle - and I was impressed by the weight and smoothness of the Expert Playing Card stock. The Jokers don't really do it for me, but this is a nice deck for collectors or magicians.  As usual I have a more detailed review with more pictures here: http://www.bicycle-cards.co.uk/2017/02/16/magicians-anonymous-playing-cards-deck-review/ - but what does everyone else think about the deck?

Deck Reviews! / [TXT] Magicians Anonymous
« Last post by philipsw on Today at 01:09:54 PM »
As a magician, the 'masked magician' identity of 'Magicians Anonymous' slightly sticks in my throat.  On the other hand, this deck comes with some extra cards which will come in very handy for a magician.  An understated design which won't set the world on fire, but they handle nicely and come in a good quality tuck.  So a good effort.  We've done a full review with more pictures here: http://www.bicycle-cards.co.uk/2017/02/16/magicians-anonymous-playing-cards-deck-review/ 
I'll try and attach one here to wet your whistle...

I am really impressed by these. They look gorgeous and the marking is brilliant.  Advertising another magician slightly sticks in my throat - but I think I can put up with that :-)

Playing Card Plethora / Re: The Zinfandel Deck - by Eric Mana
« Last post by CJS on Today at 06:41:23 AM »
No, sorry - I've to disagree  :o

Since over 2 weeks I'm the more or less proud owner of the Zinfandel and the Indigo Deck.
Since over 2 weeks I'm searching for the solution and the link.
For me it seems, without a good english its not possible to discover the "secrets"

Definitely my english is not good enough - sorry I'm a german guy and not the youngest  8)

Please can someone help me with some hints (via email) to make the decks useful for me.

Sorry for my english - it is www.leo.org's fault

Regards

I built an excel spreadsheet that I use for now. I joined Portfolio52, but I find it too basic for any productive use. Yeah, you can see what you have an how many at a glance, but it doesn't specify open vs sealed, cost, value, date acquired, etc. Too many things it doesn't have to list. I think it's a cool idea and I hope it continues to succeed, but I want more out my collection database/inventory. I want to be able to produce reports based on defined entries as I see fit. That being said, I'm now in the process of learning Access, so I can have a database that satisfies my need for lots of information.

As far as photos go, I don't bother taking my own photos. I download the KS photos or whatever each company provides online and have them all backed up and categorized in Google Drive. I considered taking my own photos, but there are decks that I'm not willing to open, so there would always be some missing.

Introduce Yourself / Re: And a good day to you, Sir!

Thanks Eddie & Kruser! I'm glad to hear your positive comments on the yearly convention. I am definitely trying to plan ahead and be there in KY. Not only to meet other members and learn about some of their interesting, rare, and vintage decks, but also to tour USPCC. I doubt another opportunity like this will come along again for me for many years if ever. And who better to tour their facility with? I imagine we'll be like kids in a candy store! Have they thought about ordering some Walmart kid leashes to keep us in line? Haha
