The magician explains that he is going to show a trick that was performed by a famous one-armed magician. To demonstrate he places his right hand in his pocket. With his left hand he holds up a deck of cards and instructs the spectator to peek at any card he likes.
Without any suspicious moves the magician hands out the deck to the spectator and nonchalantly snaps his fingers. The spectator is now asked to go through the deck and find his chosen card. The spectator looks through the deck but the card has vanished! The magician slowly removes his right hand from his pocket and shows the selected card! A miracle.
Christoph Borer, the inventor of this trick, released this effect years ago but only in the German-speaking countries where it gathered great reputation. Now it is available in an even more convincing version using Phoenix cards. We fooled all great names in magic in Atlanta, San Diego and at the Magic Castle, Hollywood. The method is so brilliant you’ll love to perform it.
This is a great effect and can be performed on stage, parlor and closeup. Remember everything happens in the spectator’s hands. The deck can be examined and the effect can be immediately repeated with a different outcome!
