Offset Bicycle Card Backs

I can't seem to find the Bicycle cards with the backs slightly offset, whereby one side of the design is thicker/thinner than the other. This allows you to have a spectator select a card, then you secrets turn the deck around 180 degrees so that then they insert their card anywhere in the deck, you can locate it simply by fanning through the back of the deck and locating their card as it's the only one with the thicker or thinner offset. Is there a special name for this deck?

Nope, they are just poorly printed regular Bikes. I read once that Costco and other big box retailers get those and sell them cheap.

If we’re talking Bycicles specifically, many normal ones just come misprinted. Tally-Ho and Phoenix cards, howeve, come with an intentional feature that differentiates the two halves of each card. Just casino wash them and riffle through.

I think you're looking for a deck that the long sides aren't perfectly parallel. They are tapered. When someone takes a card secretly turn the deck around so when they put their card back the card will have the wider part will stick out a little. You can slide the card out easily. I think thet are called a "stripper deck". Check out Bicycle Playing Cards Magic Stripper Deck. Bill
