Just curious.  I'm thinking that might be cheaper for signed card tricks if it exists.

You can buy one-way forcing decks that consist of all of one card.  I think they come with one "X" card to keep on the bottom.  

Depending upon the dealer you might be able to pick-and-choose what force card you want.

If you have a brick-and-mortar shop nearby that stocks them, they'll probably let you comb though and pick a particular card.

The other way to go is to but a Pinochle deck in your chosen back design if it is available.

It gives you a bunch of extra court cards, aces, etc.

Yes, a one way force deck.

It will mean the card will have to be forced though.

You could get a two, or three way forcing deck. This would give you two or three different banks of cards to use, that way you're not using the same selection each time (handy for repeat performances).

Another approach, is to have two regular decks, and replace the signed card each time, with the corresponding card from the other deck. This can be handy if you want a genuine selection, or a named or thought of card.

A group of 4 or 5 of us used to get together and gang buy 50 decks at costco, sam's etc. Luck of the draw on which value we got. Not a bad way to get one way (or 2 way or 3 way) decks for very little cost.
