Item:  Tally Ho Circle Back - Black
Minimum Offer: It looks like the original retail was $7, so I guess that's the minimum I'd pay.
Quantity: Depending on the price, I would take anything from 1-6 decks.
Country: USA

Hi!  I'm trying to find the Black Circle Back deck that, from what I've read, was ordered by Murphy's Magic.  The Fan Back version has a copyright date of 2015 on the box, and has no barcode.  They come with two full size colored jokers, a double backer, and a card with poker hands on one side, and the back design on the other.  I'm assuming the Circke Back version has the same ingredients :)

I've found the Fan Back on a bunch of sites, and it instantly became my favorite handling deck.  I've never tried to buy or sell anything through a forum before, but I buy and sell on eBay here and there.  I'd really appreciate any info anyone has on where to find these ellusive Circle Backs.  Thanks!

Gosh, I'm so sorry.  Before I made the post I looked for a "wanted" area on the site but didn't find it.  I didn't take enough time, and just now saw the proper area.  I didn't see a way to delete this post.  I'm so sorry!
I know this is an old post, but seeing as my favorite deck is pictured here I figured I would join the discussion :-)
The fan back without the bar code looks to be my favorite deck.  If it is, it has a double backer and a "poker hand" card.  The poker card has the back design on the other side.  The circle back version is the deck I've been trying to find.  I'm jealous lol.  A couple sites that sell the fan back list Murphy's Magic as being the client that had the deck printed.  I sent an email to someone there, but haven't heard back.  I guess I'm not surprised.  After all, I'm just a card geek and not a retailer so why would they take their time for me.  :|
It's interesting that there isn't a bar code!  I've been through 10 decks and  I never noticed until I read this!  I'd love to own the other fan back too.  But being a Cincinatti deck, this picture will probably be the closest I get to one :'-(. Although I do have a couple Blue Seal Circle Backs coming soon :).
Playing Card Plethora / On The Hunt: Black Circle Backs

Hello :-)

I've been trying to find a deck of black Tally Ho Circle Backs for months, and basically I'm out of ideas.  I think (don't quote me) Murphy's Magic had them printed a while ago.  I love the Fan Back version, and see them for sale on a bunch of sites, but the Circle Back version has proven impossible to locate :(

Being my favorite deck, I at least want one deck to leave sealed for my collection.  Has anyone seen these for sale anywhere?  Even if it's a local magic shop, I would be willing to call and beg them for an over-the-phone sale.  Today I started looking at online retailers based in other countries outside the US.  I feel silly asking this community for help with such a simple deck, but I really really want to find them :(. thanks in advance for any info!

Deck Reviews! / [TXT] Murphys Signature NOCs
« Last post by philipsw on February 24, 2017, 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: - but what does everyone else think about the deck?

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: 
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 :-)

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's fault

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.
