Sometimes what's inside isn't to be known.

 Mystery Box J.J. Abram's Card Deck

In 2007, J.J. Abrams spoke at TED about a mysterious box he received as a child from his grandfather. It was a box of magic tricks - the kind where you pay $15 and it's guaranteed to contain $50 worth of stuff. Sadly, his grandfather died before they could open it together. J.J. Abrams never opened that box. It sits in his office - a persistent reminder of the power of mystery, intrigue, and wonder. And now we have a little of that magic with the Mystery Box J.J. Abram's Card Deck.

J.J. Abrams, Bad Robot, and theory11 all got together to design a deck of cards (we think) that imparts that feeling of wonder. We say, we THINK it's a deck of cards because we haven't opened ours yet. You can see a little in the images that it looks like a deck of cards, so we're calling it a deck of cards. Each deck is individually wrapped in letterpressed kraft paper, stamped with the question mark emblem. And, the insides took this awesome team 2 years to put together. Without giving too much away, the Mystery Box J.J. Abram's Card Deck contains a lot of secrets and surprises, possibly/probably relating to a lot of Bad Robot projects of the past, present, and possibly future. The choice to tear it open, or forever keep it closed, is yours. Mystery Box J.J. Abram's Card Deck - it's all about the magic of wonder.

And there's a little bonus, too! Bad Robot will donate $1 from the sale of each deck to 826 National, a non-profit dedicated to promoting creative writing in schools and workshops around the USA.

SPOILER WARNING: As with all magic tricks and mysteries like this, if you find the solution (i.e., open the deck), please keep any secrets to yourself. Don't spoiler up the magic and wonder of others. Thanks.
