Card Gear: theDoc318's Bag of Toys



Card Gear is our monthly feature dedicated to discovering new inventory, setup, and accessories used every day by card designers, cardists, magicians and collectors. The concept originated from the popular social media site, Instagram: #passthepockets. Whenever one of these hashtags come up on the social news feed, there's always something new to discover, no matter who that person is.

Mike's EDC is by far one of the coolest Card Gear we've seen in a long time! Better known as @thedoc318 on Instagram, Mike's account is one of the most visually inspiring playing cards related accounts we follow on Instagram. Recently, Mike successfully funded the Oculus Playing Cards with Randy Butterfield of Midnight Cards.

As for the backpack of toys? Autism is the world Mike lived, worked and loves for over 20 years, so he explores different sensory uses for anything and everything he finds. Mike uses cardistry and magic to help build social skills. He uses different card stocks, finishes, and even cardistry trainers to help accommodate certain kids that may be able to use one better than the other. Mike's gear (Italics are Mike's comments):
