My favorite card trick for the beginning of the year is "Don't Blank." by Matt Featherstone. The whole deck becomes blank, (face and back) except for the selected card.

It is in the January "Magic Magazine".

The spectators selects a card from a card deck. The card is returned to the deck face down. The deck is now turned over. Every card except the chosen card is blank on the face. The deck is turned back over. Now no backs are on the card because they are all blank too. The cards can be examined by the spectator. Everything is blank on both sides except for the chosen card.

True but Dynamike said the cards can be examined by the spectator which isn't the case with a Mental Photography deck.

One card would have to be copped before handing out the deck.
