Split Spades

Split Spades

These are the original David Blaine playing cards, first commissioned by David Blaine and released to the market in 2005. With an new edition on the market, these cards are already fetching above market prices as collectors items. The cards have Tally Ho’s classic linoid finish, they fan and cut perfectly, and are used by David Blaine and other sleight of hand artists.

The back design was created by illustrator M. Stutzman and features subtle two-way images. Look carefully and you can see the Angel putting the serpent to the sword and a tiger in the shadow of the flames.

The new edition, David Blaine Lions, looks similar but the design is inverted and features a number of other changes. The claw or talon at the center of the back design now shows wings.
