    This is the CLASSIC LUMINOUS on Bee brand cards, but it’s put on so that you are able to read the value and the suit for magic purposes. That’s why we call it ABC Luminous. Luminous uses a filter that you look through to see the marks. This filter can be placed on the inside of your sunglasses or you can get professional glasses or contact lenses to see the marks on the back of the cards. We sell two different types of Luminous Marked Cards. Those printed by machine and these that are marked by hand. The cards marked by hand are far less expensive than those marked by machine, so you can either pay more and get a machine marked card (red or blue in Bicycle or Bee) or purchase this hand marked deck in Red Bee.

    Introduction Excerpt from Book:

    “How Gamblers Win or the Secrets of Advantage Playing Exposed is an important contribution to early American card-sharping literature. The earliest American expose on cheating is An Exposure of the Arts and Miseries of Gambling with the author listed only as a”An Adept.” The third major contribution to this body of information was How Gamblers Win or the Secrets of Advantage Playing published in hard cover in 1865 and attributed to Gerritt M. Evans. When republished in soft cover a few years later. Evan’s name was omitted and the author was simply listed as “A Retired Professional.” Why the sudden need for anonymity? One can speculate that Evans may have experienced heat from the gambling/card-cheating fraternity (as did Green), but no one knows for sure.

    The first thing that grabs you with how Gamblers Win is the graphically stunning jacket design featuring a devil standing on a giant die with cards in one hand and a dice cup in the other. The caricature is spectacular and the cover alone make this title a favorite with collectors of antique gambling books. Next is the terminology “Advantage Playing” in the subtitle, employed by cheaters. Although Green and An Adept both referred to the advantages practiced by cheats, neither used the catch-all phrase of Advantage Play or Advantage Players as synonymous with cheating or cheaters. Evans was the first, I believe, and the terms were later adopted by other authors.

    How Gamblers Win presents a comprehensive treatment of the different advantages practiced by the professional sharper in short cards, banking games played with cards and dice, and gambling cons. There’s some limited history along with a “brief analysis of legitimate play” as stated on the title page. All of the popular games of the day are addressed with one striking omission. Faro, a game covered in detail by both authors previously mentioned…

    ..How Gamblers Win is a curious, revealing and important early card-sharping title that will make you want to pick up a deck of cards and explore the technical possibilities, or pick up another book on cheating to make historical comparisons. It’s loaded with more than enough gambling moves to satisfy the technicians; plenty of historical relevance to appeal to the historians; and for those who read for entertainment, the work is replete with amusing metaphors, anecdotes and showy terminology. How Gambler’s Win is a bonafide classic and a cinch to become a showpiece in any gambling or card-sharping library.”

    Description:

    BEING A COMPLETE AND SCIENTIFIC EXPOSE OF THE MANNER OF PLAYING ALL THE VARIOUS ADVANTAGES IN THE GAMES OF POKER, ALL-FOURS, EUCHRE, VINGT-UN, WHIST, CRIBBAGE, ETC. AS PRACTICED BY PROFESSIONAL GAMBLERS UPON THE UNINITIATED. TOGETHER WITH A BRIEF ANALYSIS OF LEGITIMATE PLAY. BY A RETIRED PROFESSIONAL

    Originally published in 1865 and attributed to Gerritt M. Evans, How Gamblers Win is one of the earliest publications on the subject of advantage play – or cheating at cards. This is a reprint of the 1868 edition.

    It is extremely rare for a practicing gambler to publish methods of cheating and such texts are often written by outsiders who do not fully understand and are not capable of executing the techniques described. Gamblers stands as one of the few exceptions to this rule.

    Long unobtainable, the book has been republished in its entirety. In this new hard-cover edition, every page has been re-type-set, including the original advertisements included in the original publication. Only 800 were printed and less than 650 are available for sale.

    The foil-stamped, hardbound 4.5″ x 7″ book is 109 pages is cloth-backed and has a full-colour dust jacket. Dust-jacket and book design by Michael Albright.

    This is the classic Bicycle Luminous Deck. The cards only come only in Red, not in Blue. These cards are marked for value and suit to make it easy to know which cards the spectator selects. They are also marked by hand rather than by machine. We have machine marked cards in Bicycle (both red and blue), however, the costs for such decks are a bit higher than this deck. With Luminous you look through a red filter to be able to see the cards. This filter is included with the deck. You can place the filter on the inside of your sunglasses for your show or you can purchase custom-made glasses from us in the brand of frames you like.
