Blaine offers signed playing cards in bottles

February 12th, 2009 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under David Blaine

Call it the ultimate collectible. Street magic legend David Blaine is selling signed decks of his Split Spades Lions playing cards. In bottles. From his Web site:

This is not a magic trick or an optical illusion. The very real, very solid deck of signed Split Spades cards has been placed inside the bottle through the neck by artisan and fellow magician Jamie D. Grant. The bottle has not been cut or built around the deck. The neck has not been removed and re-attached. It is just as you see it!

Only 44 of these bottles are being made. According to the site, David wants you to enjoy the bottle not just as a conversation piece, but “to inspire you the next time you are given an impossible challenge or an insurmountable task.”

Price: $200 a pop. We recommend very secure shelves. And moving away from fault lines.
