Among card collectors, there is a group of collectors standing on top of the card-collecting food chain, amassing a collection of old and rare casino playing cards.
The more well-known among these casino playing cards are JN and GN. What these cards have in common is that they tend to be very expensive.
Perhaps the veteran collectors still recall the Sky Blue Tally-Ho deck, a collaboration between Tomohiro Maeda (前田知洋) and Casio. Its price reached $300 during 2014 ~ 2015.
The King of Japan close-up magic!
Just as you would think of Dan and Dave when Smoke & Mirrors are mentioned, or Zach with the Fontaines. When it comes to Tally-Ho in Japan, one can only think of Tomohiro Maeda (前田知洋).
He is always elegantly dressed in a black suit and white dress shirt and always carries Tally-Ho decks with him.
Tomohiro Maeda (前田知洋) is honored as Japan's first professional close-up magician. At the same time, he is the creator of the technique [アンビシャスカード], and he has graced the cover of "Genii" magazine.
These playing cards adopts the classic design Tally-Ho Circle back design, and the sides of the tuck box are the finish and factory information.
