This came from an old magician’s estate. Good condition. Comes with the original instructions.
The effect as described with the instructions: The miracle worker (you!) holds a single (Bridge-size) playing card, back outwards towards the audience. A spectator shouts out the name of any playing card, and fantastically, on turning the card over the very card thought of is seen on the face! This is not as impossible as it sounds, due to the fact that all fifty-two cards are printed on the face!
The spectator is asked to concentrate on his chosen card and squeeze the card between his hands. He names the card and when he opens his hands and looks at the card, there are now only only 51 cards printed on the face as well as one miniature ‘back’. The card missing is none other than the chosen card, which is soon discovered as the only face up card on the reverse side!
Please note: The effect as described above can not be done without first having forced the card on the spectator. It can not be done with any card card called out at random. But you as the magician must try and give the impression to your audience that it was a random selection.
