This is a pre-owned item.
The deck is riffle shuffled by the performer and cut by a spectator and then fanned or ribbon spread face down. While the performer turns his back a spectator removes any card, looks at it, and places it out of sight. The performer takes the deck and thumbs through the cards face up. When half way through the deck he explains that the only way to know which is the selected card is to memorize the entire deck and see which card is missing. After thumbing through the deck the performer ANNOUNCES THE SELECTED CARD!
