This came from an old magician’s estate. Comes with the original three pages of instructions and the two jumbo prepared cards. You receive just the two jumbo cards for Sam Dalal’s Plus version of this trick.
Credit to Kellini for a novel idea and to Sam Dalal for the additional work he put into the effect to make it 100% practical.
Effect: From a regular-deck of playing cards, two cards are chosen. The cards are the four of diamonds and the three of spades. Then the magician shows his prediction in the form of two jumbo cards.
CALAMITY! Instead of the four of diamonds and the three of spades he has the five of diamonds and the two of spades.
He holds a card in each band, mysteriously the center pip of the four creeps across the card, it travels through the air, turning over as it does so. It lands on the two, transforming it into a three, so the magician now holds the two correct cards!
The effect is most spooky to watch and a certain laugh finish to a prediction!
