Reverso was a Mechanical Deck, similar in effect to the later Invisible Deck that allowed the performer to show any card named to be reversed in its deck. It was created and marketed by Edward Bagshawe in 1921.

Leipzig was known to perform a routine named "Reverso" which was described in Dai Vernon's Tribute to Nate Leipzig that appears to be similar to Theodore DeLand's Inverto.

It was later evolved by Dai Vernon into the Brainwave Deck.

There was also a deck called "Reverso" created by Donald Holmes.
