I had this idea for a “signed card to impossible location” type of effect, where a signed card is revealed under a card box, for about 4 years ago…

Imagine placing a RED backed prediction card from a BLUE deck of cards under the card box, in a way so the card remains in full view all the time. Have a spectator select a card from the (blue) pack, sign it across the face, and return it into the pack. Ask the spectator to pick up the card from under the card box only to reveal THEIR SIGNED SELECTION!!! Yes, THAT direct and THAT strong! And get this: NO Palming, NO funny business whatsoever.

Sounds to good to be true? I hear you think: “There has GOT to be a catch somewhere”. Of course there IS something, but it’s SO natural, fair and motivated, you’ll LOVE it. It took me quite some time to complete the final method and handlings, but I finally had it all figured out. I wanted an truly impossible signed card under card box routine with NO difficult sleights or “nacky” handlings, and NO palming. Something I could count on that it would ALWAYS amaze people, and ALWAYS work in any performance situation, so I could focus on the presentation for the full 100%.

My answer is “Impossible Prediction”, and after using it for a couple of years in my professional repertoire, I decided to share it with the rest of the magic community.

I sold the rights to Paul Richards from Elmwood Magic, and it will be available exclusively through them anywhere this year. We both are VERY exited about it’s release and looking forward to offer you this quality effect.

“Impossible Prediction” will blow the socks off of your spectators, guaranteed! Unfortunately I can’t give you any more details as for now. I CAN reveal that the very special gimmick as well as the method are diabolically simple and clever, and It does most of the work for you Smile

I’ll keep you all posted about the progress.

Best,

Peter

Hey Peter,

You've come out with some wonderful effects and "Impossible Prediction" sounds great too. Could this be used as an end to an Ambitious routine?


Thanx

Magis6,

Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate it.

With a little modification, yes you could. Infact, the more you know about card magic, the more original magic you will be able to create with this very special gimmick.
