Re: Mike Caveney's new book

Re: Erdnase

On a side note, has anyone here handled decks from back in Erdnases' era and compared it with the decks that we're used to handling today? In terms of size, card stock, etc. Were moves harder to execute on the card stock from back then? I'm just curious.

Never met the man though, and heard that he'd throw you out of his show if he knows you're a magician.
