TV Magic Cards was a Svengali Deck sold by Marshall Brodien on TV during the late 1960s and 70s. The deck resembled a regular playing card deck, except that the cards could be shown as all the same card. Many other card tricks could also be performed with the deck.

Millions of these decks of cards were sold.

The first commercial aired on November 18, 1969.

Following the cards, he also put together TV Magic Cups and TV Magic Show (a magic set).

The svengali deck, popularized by Burling Hull, has been demonstrated by pitchmen and magicians all over the world.
