Back in 2013 when Mirage was first designed, black color option has always been our first choice. as some of you may have seen from our previous prototype of Mirage. This year, we are extremely excited to bring this color back with new upgraded feature. Mirage Eclipse edition is the BEST edition we have ever produced. Here’s why:
Mirage Eclipse Edition has the same iconic look by Patrick Kun with new upgraded materials from inside out. From the tuck case, V3 features a thick black dyed tuck case with an accent of silver foil stamp along sealed with a red metallic stamp.
Brand new paper stock?
Yes! We worked very closely with Legends Playing Cards to find the best paper we can find that is perfect for both magic and cardistry. This edition of Mirage was printed on a brand new “Cardistry” paper from Taiwan. The cards feel extremely soft right out from the box and hold its shape well even after heavy use. Personally, I am always a big fan of thinner stock deck and I am sure you will love this paper too.
Marked deck notes:
A secret feature was added to this edition of the Mirage playing cards. That’s right. They’re marked! Let’s keep that between us. There is a secret link inside the box which reveals all. It was very important for this marking system to be as practical as possible, and I think we nailed it!
- Optical illusion back specially designed for both magic and cardistry
- Secret marking system that can be read on all four corners. The marking is easy to spot and yet still pass the riffle test! No need to worry about anyone finding out the secrets.
- Fully custom court cards by Tomas Hlavaty
- Comes in Juan Tamariz’s Mnemonica stack.
Printed by the Legends Playing Card Company (LPCC), the Mirage deck features LPCC’s new Cardistry Finish card stock, a super soft and ‘papery’ feeling stock which requires no break-in period. These cards are traditionally cut with Legends’ Diamond Cut process, yielding ultra smooth edges that faro effortlessly from the bottom to top. With a silky coating and quality reminiscent of Bicycle #808 decks from the early 90’s, MIRAGE is perfect for any card enthusiasts sleight of hand, Cardistry, or gambling needs. As is always the case with LPCC, the borders on these playing cards are registered to extremely tight tolerances, as their standards allow for zero imperfections.
Introducing Mirage; a modern deck of playing cards conceptualized by magician-slash-graphic-designer Patrick Kun with assistance from Simon Black. Over a year in the making, these playing cards have seen constant aesthetic changes influenced and refined by multiple artists. The Mirage deck is a master-level work of art into which countless vials of blood, sweat, and tears were spilled.
The back design features a dark blue hue reminiscent of the night sky, with four corners resembling epaulets on a uniform. The crosshatched pattern on either end of the deck showcases a crystalline, multifaceted pinstripe garb that serves as a quasi-3-dimensional illusion within the background of the card.
