There was no question Mikame was a great craftsman of quality wood apparatus. We knew him personally and when he started producing again featured his products exclusively in the States. We would meet with him every few years in Japan. In many cases he made substantial improvements with resepect to their design. Unfortunately, Mikame (to my knowledge), never credited previous innovators and crafters of the pieces he replicated. In some cases such details may be disputable, or even difficult to determine. But in the majority of cases this was not the case and his legacy would of been stronger had he made some efforts to do so.
A chosen card is placed into the GHOST CARD FRAME, and the entire frame is covered with a silk. The silk is then removed to reveal the card has vanished. Magician reaches into his pocket and reveals the chosen card and puts it back into the frame. It is covered once more by the silk. The silk is then removed and the frame reveals another card. The magician asks if the card is indeed the chosen card. The audience states it is not and the magician hastily covers the frame with the silk. The silk is then removed to reveal the chosen card. Quality Wood Prop!
