Monte Cristo Pack or ("Peerless Monte-Cristo Cards") is a Forcing Deck developed by Henry Hardin, produced by Theodore DeLand and put on the market in December 1908.

As advertised in 1909, "One of the card hits of the century, the nearest approach to the supernatural yet discovered, a spectator looks at any card in the deck and suite name, etc., is found written on a piece of paper in a sealed envelope in another spectator's possession."

A later development of the deck was the Telomatic Deck and was an early version of the Tossed Out Deck
