Topic: Help with an old card trick
Message: Posted by: Dan Ford (Oct 12, 2021 08:17PM)
I used to perform this trick in the 70's and got it out of a book which I cannot find it and now do not have the directions. It is a deck of 9 magicians and 9 hats with a DF card of both. Story goes about the magicians ending up with each having a hat. I have searched my library and cannot locate the book I learned it from. Any help is appreciated.

I'm not home now, but I certainly have it in a Paul Curry's book. Or at least it's very similar to what you are looking for

That's "The Case of the Missing Hat" originally from Curry's [i]Magicians Magic[/i] and later reprinted in [i]World's Beyond[/i]. Both are available at Vanishing Inc.

Thank you both for replying, that is a great help in my search for the answer. Curry's Magicians Magic is in my library and you both were a big help. Thank you very much.

Yep! Magician's Magic is the one I've got. It's the Dover edition
