Neil Lester of Cards by Martin has just informed me that he's no longer making these due to advanced age and the work involved...anyone have a good alternative, hopefully within the US?

Postby Guest » 01/24/06 05:38 PM has belly strippers. Their gambling section has a number of hard to find items.

Which are for entertainment purposes only, of course. It's just that people have different ideas about what constitutes entertainment.

Actually, the belly strippers and other custom cards listed at ELMagicshop are made by Neil Lester on an as ordered basis, which would put possumslimm back where he started.

I have a limited number of quality belly stripper decks I sell. My father, George Sands, stood next to a machinist as he had a few hundred precision decks made before he passed away. they can be found on my web site:
I also send you both routines with the purchase of two decks, or you can buy the custom sorted decks to do the two routines he used them for.

Hello Mr Sands. The link takes me to your store but the listing of the item (either the image of the deck or the text) only lead to a blank page. Is the problem on my end?

Daniel Z,

I get a 404 warning when I click the card deck image link but the " TWO custom decks of cards" text link works but for some reason is scrolled to the middle bottom of the page which is blank. Scroll up & the info is all there.

You can make reverse Belly Strippers yourself, you probably already know how, if not contact me. The "problem" with reverse Belly Strippers is that they have to be controlled individually. I think th Blue Book might help you, even though it was a catalog for a company that doesn't exist anymore it contains informations on books where to find how to make some pretty things with a deck of cards. Steve Forte has some material on it in the Gambling Protection Series, he shows how they're made, but you need to get some furniture.
