I dont know if Richard will remember this, but the first time we met was at a semiprivate workshop that was part of the New York Magic Symposium in San Francisco that he gave. I said something about Bicycles being great cards (in those days they still were pretty good). Richard took his Tahoes, spread them out on the floor, walked on them, saying, Would you do this to your Bicycles? He scooped them up, handed to me and said to make a fan. It was perfect. I bought several dozen decks after that. They are all gone now! They were wonderful cards.
Richard, what are the cards you are using now? They have that same buttery feel that the Tahoes used to have.
