The Dollar Deck (or Automatic Deck or Automatic Playing Cards) was developed by Theodore DeLand in 1913. It is a combination Marked Deck, Stacked Deck, and Stripper Deck.

He followed this deck up, a few years later, with the Wonder Deck.

DeLand's Dollar Deck appeared on the market in May 1914 until the end of 1918. When S. S. Adams first put it out in early 1919, they did so with the title, "Automatic Playing Cards". It was under that title that it has been sold until sometime in 2009, when Magic Makers bought S. S. Adams and changed the title to "DeLand's 100 Dollar Deck".
