The ideas and design of this deck were created by Theodore L. De Land in the first decade of the 1900s. More than 100 years later, De Land's deck and his other magical inventions continue to fool audiences... even the most discerning spectator.
The DeLands Deck contains a secret marking system, giving you the ability to know a card without seeing its face! The deck is also "tapered" (a Stripper Deck) giving you the ability to control a card or groups of cards by touch alone; anywhere in the deck! To top it off, this deck has yet another secret marking system, giving you the ability to instantly find any card!
By the way, any tricks you can do with the Stripper Deck, you can do with the DeLand's deck! Take a look at the Stripper Deck instruction DVD or Stripper Deck instruction book for lots more tricks you can do with this deck!
The name Stripper Deck, by the way, refers to the way the cards are cut, or "stripped". It is NOT an X-Rated trick in any way! It is simply a cleverly cut deck of cards that allows anyone, even children, to perform some astounding card tricks IMMEDIATELY.
