Marcel Aces
Trick by Marcel ($29.00)
In stock. Order now — we'll send it first thing Thursday morning
Your audiences will love this beautiful and amazing Ace assembly!

A spectator signs 4 blue-backed Aces, and one is put into a wine glass. Three piles are made on the table using a signed Ace and three red-backed cards. However, the Aces on the table disappear one by one, and are eventually found in the wine glass! So easy you'll be ready to go in ten minutes!

An elegant and incredible display! Get yours today!
You get a gimmick and a video instructional link.

From the video demo it looks obvious there is more than one card in the glass.Is this going to pass spectator?

I also feel if seated close to the glass the viewing audience will definitely notice that there is not just one card in the glass. The audience would have to be seated perfectly. Also, if you were planning on placing just one Ace in the glass not sure what the justification would be for the performer to pick up all the cards to show all the aces again and only take one to place in the glass. Yes, we are magicians watching this demo but I have to agree the procedure and discrepancy of the "One" card placed in the glass does not look good. Not for $29.00, IMO. Looks like you would get(3)gimmicked cards.

That looks so bad

I think I would rather watch a trick using 3 rows of 21 cards... perhaps live, this trick may be good, but IMHO, the demo video just did not sell me on it.. I do :applause: the uncut demo though.

Why oh why did you have to dig this rubbish up? As if we’re not already depressed enough at this time.

"A Simple Fix Here" Why not cover the glass with a silk not only will it hide the thickness of the cards but it will also add a bit of mystery before the revelation .

Haa. Dunno how I did tbh. I do google search with "Magic Café" so must have been a result from that.
