Con A few tricks need special props
The vast majority of tricks in this book require nothing more than regular playing cards or other normal items, like string or coins. However, this book was originally sold with a set of trick cards and other "special" items. The book is still extremely valuable for the tricks that don't require anything special, but for some of the tricks you might have to track down something "special".
