Hello!

My son pulls off an impressive back palm, but it's almost impossible for him to hide a standard size card behind his small hand.

We purchased from Amazon a small deck for travel, but it is ridiculously small.

Does anyone know where I can purchase a deck of cards that is slightly smaller than standard size cards?

Thanks in advance!

If by "standard size" you mean "poker size," you could pick up a deck of bridge size cards on Amazon and see if those are any better. They're 1/4 inch narrower than the poker size decks, and that 1/4 inch makes a greater difference than might be imagined in how they handle. They sell regular-looking Bicycle decks in that size.

You sometimes see bridge sized cards in Walmart and the pharmacy stores on the card racks next to the poker size cards so readily available as Chris says. There are no smaller cards other than the 'patience' size cards as we call them in England (probably the size you had) or novelty miniature cards.

Back in my stage magic days and during contests ( 20 years ago ). I used the above in which the cards are ultra-thin when you have to do manipulations. If he is going to do back palms or produce cards..these are the cards to get.

They're narrower and thinner. Your kid will be doing some amazing stuff in no time at all.

These blend into your palms due to the color of the cards.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Unfortunately, I really need a deck where the length is shorter than a standard sized deck.

If anyone has suggestions, please let me know.
