Cardini’s World War I ribbons and medals. Seven medals, worn on his uniform during the “Great War.” Including the 1914 – 15 Star, the British War Medal, the Victory Medal, Long Service & Good Conduct medal, Victory Ribbon, and two more. Significant wear visible. Due to his injuries in the First World War, Cardini – then Richard Valentine Pitchford – found himself in hospital and bed-ridden. As legend has it, when he requested a pair of white leather gloves be brought to his bedside, and began manipulating cards while wearing them, doctors and nurses took special notice – but for the wrong reasons, doubting his sanity. Luckily, he used his convalescence to perfect the sleight-of-hand techniques he would go on to make famous on the world’s grandest stages.
