Ash Marlow Signed Playing Card 

Not strictly speaking a signed playing card but was a signed business card that was enclosed with a free gift that he provided after I made a purchase from him.

Ash is a magician who also designs and sells his own playing cards and effects.  In 2020 he released his own "Ape" design playing cards.  An amazing deck that was initially on Kickstarter, though I bought directly from him.


Ben Hart- Signed Playing Card

After seeing Ben perform live on the 06-Mar, I was able to get a selfie, get my book signed and this playing card. as well  Signed in person by Ben at the Curve Theatre in Leicester.


Very nice chap who was patient with everyone who waited to see him, despite the fact that he was probably tired. 

A great card to have signed as lots of room for the signature. Possibly my favourite signed playing card. 

The condition of the card is excellent and was a new card.

Signed: 06-Mar 2022


Betty Davenport- Signed Playing Card Box

This is a nice signed card to own.

Signed by Betty Davenport of the famed Davenport family who founded the famous magic shop that was based in London.  

Dated 2002 and acquired via e-bay.  Granchild of the founder Lewis Davenport.

Condition is excellent.

White Lions Tour Edition (Black) Playing Cards by David Blaine - NEW USPC Signed.


Acquired:  June 2021 


Daniel Madison - Signed Playing Cards

These cards were on sale via e-Bay as one lot. This included the Strangers and Advocates playing cards. Both signed.

I was able to win at a relatively low price. Many single packs of these cards go for much more than I paid for the two packs of these cards.

While I do not know much about Daniel, I do know that he is a member of the 52. An interesting and very experienced card artist/magician.


Acquired:  Apr 2022


David Minton - Signed Playing Card

I was able to get this playing card signed by David while having a coffee with him.

A member of the Magic Circle and  creator of the effect "Executive Suite".

This card is extra special to me as David performed a mentalism routine which involved the Jack for me.

A very nice addition to my collection as it was gained in person with memories attached.


Acquired:  Nov 2021 


Elliot Bibby - Signed Playing Card

I have had the opportunity to view Elliot's online show a couple of times. 


I have worked within him on a couple of show reviews and also an interview.


In March 2021, I was able to gain a signed card which is a great collectable.


A signed note from Elliot also came with the card which is also an excellent memento.


An amazing artist that I hope to see before live after lockdown eases.


Acquired:  March 2021 


Kovari Signed Playing Card 

Sourced via ebay.

Nice addition to my collection and in very good condition.

It has been very well looked after and of course can tell it is an older item due to manner in which playing card is printed/aged. 


Very nice collectable to own.

Lxke Trix Signed Playing Card 

This card was signed by Luke Baker aka Lxke Trix.

Having worked with Luke on interviews for this site and purchasing products from his Magic Hut shop, I received this signed card in August/September 2020.

Inscribed as "To Martin, thanks for all your support, from Luke" on a red Bicycle card.


Magical Bones Signed Playing Card 

After waiting a couple of years to see magical Bones, I was finally able to go and see his show "Black Magic".


I had previously seen him perform online for a private virtual show. Seeing him perform stage magic in person was amazing.

Like many magicians, Bones took the opportunity to meet his audience after the show. Lots of photo and selfie opportunities.  A memorable night.

Kind of Bones to sign a card for me as well.

Marc Spelmann - The 1X500 Playing Cards & Signed Cert

Marc is certainly an artist who has gained a lot of attention through his appearances on Britains Got Talent.

In April 2021, Marc released a limited edition deck of 500 cards which he designed himself.  He is a graphic designed and it shows, the box, deck of cards and certificate are very well designed.

My certificated is number 40 of 500 so quite a low number.  Signed by Marc and "X".

A nice collectable which also comes with some instruction videos online.

Received/Purchased:  April 2021


Mark Shortland Signed 53 Films Playing Cards 

As well as a magician, Mark Shortland is an artist.

To date he has created three decks of cards  - 53 Films, 53 Magicians  and 53 Movies.

On his site, you can purchase the playing cards and the artwork, each piece of artwork of course being unique and used for creating one of the cards in an actual deck that can be bought.


The 53 Films series caught my eye on his site after watching Mark perform live on Zoom.  This pack of cards has actually been signed by Mark and came in a half cellophane wrap.  The wrap is removed for this photo but has been placed back on the deck to protect the signature.

Purchased:  April 2021
