As a teenager, Asad and a group of friends became intrigued with the world magic and sleight of hand. As the obsession grew, finding quality resources for learning magic became increasingly harder to find and more expensive. Conceptually, 52Kards as an idea was born however it did not yet have a form.

Fast forward to 2011 during the early days of YouTube, Asad recognized that this platform would become a major educational resource for all subjects. The 52Kards channel was launched with the goal of providing students of magic quality instructional content for free andl would eventually become one of the largest magic channels in the world. Now with over 1 million subscribers, 52Kards has helped countless magicians elevate their craft.

52Kards later evolved from being an educational platform to also becoming a leading authorized e-commerce retailer and producer for top brands in premium playing cards and magic tricks.
