In collaboration with Potter & Potter and Pitchford Entertainment, Media and Magic, we proudly present these limited edition playing cards to celebrate the life and career of Richard Valentine Pitchford (1895-1973). Under the stage name of Cardini, Pitchford's flawless sleight of hand, effortless charm and infectious humor garnered him the adulation of fellow magicians and international audiences.

Special features include a vintage-inspired tuck box, letterpress-printed with gold metallic ink and embossed typography. Custom tax stamp, ace of spades, and matching jokers depicting a silhouette of Cardini illustrated by Wade J. Callender.
