Question vintage 1800 or ghost deck??

Hey,

I'm wondering if I should buy the vintage 1800 series or the white ghost deck...
Any opinions??

Thanks again!
Michael

The most important question would be: what is the purpose? If it is to perform magic with, you would be better off with a more ordinary deck of cards, but then the 1800 Series would do too because they aren't as unnatural looking as the Ghosts. For flourishing, I think the Ghost deck looks better (unless it is for a video in which the 1800 Series would suit the needs better). For collecting? Go with the Ghost deck.

the ghost deck is realllllly nice, but it doesnt handle as well as i expected [maybe my expectations are too high?] and personally, i dont get why people would pay for a deck thats ripped up and old looking lol but thats just me :P

i agree with rob...lol

I'm not a fan of the ghost deck. The standard is roughly the same as a normal bike and I don't really like the design, with the contrast of the red pips and black and white face art, which is not very sharply printed. The Vintage 1800's have never taken my fancy so I've not tried them. The sort of people I perform for would be distracted by such a gimmicky looking deck. I want them watching my magic, not asking why my deck looks like a cowboy's deck. If I had to pick one of them I'd take the (white) Ghosts but honestly I think there are many much nicer decks that come at the same price.
