So, SelecTV was seen in other markets, hmm? In L.A., this subscription TV service was carried over KWHY Channel 22 during the PM hours and weekends. Oddly enough, KWHY is currently part of the NBC/Telemundo duopoly with former ON TV affiliate KVEA Channel 52. Small world, huh? Comment posted by RocketBoy on Sunday, May 30th 2010 at 6:19am.
And of course, ON TV was shown in Chicago on . . . WSNS Channel 44. Comment posted by W.B. on Sunday, May 30th 2010 at 3:03pm.

Smctopia - Half of the cards were from a normal deck. The other half were all the same (in this case, the ace of spades), cut slightly shorter than the others. They were then arranged short card-regular card. It's a little hard to explain from there.
Armitage - I had one of those stripper decks, too. And a marked deck with which I would play poker with my brothers...
I had what was known as a stripper deck (no, it didn't have naked lady suits on the cards...I had a deck of those too, though). The deck was factory cut a certain way as not to notice at first glance that the cards narrow from top to bottom. I would have to physically show you how it works. It is so simple. Never could get the hang of marked cards though.
Another one from the late 60's. This would run during Cubs games. There was a longer version where, after Howard Miller spoke, the kid came out with a big plate of spaghetti or chop suey, set it on the couch, and the two of them started eating and knocking the food onto the furniture.
