Dunno if this was already suggested, but it's a good idea to use a blank faced card in your FOB. That way if there's any view of the card in the gimmick no one will be able to discern the card's identity. Originally I placed some random card in the FOB, and I was informed by more than one spectator the card in the gimmick is a King. Because no matter how flat you make the card there will always be some part of it exposed. Other than that, it's the sickest revelation. I use it to end an effect by Gary Kurtz from his book Unexplainable Acts called Hypothetical Possibilities. Keep Calm and Sleight On!!!

Nice idea, although I personally just use some more double sided tape to keep it all flat!

I know this is an old thread. If I wanted to change the card in the gimmick, is it OK to use some acetate to remove any sticky residue from inside the gimmick fob?

NO. I tried this once and it resulted in a haziness to the plastic. I peel away as much tape as I can and just apply new tape with the new insert. Its not like the spectator "examine" the preswitched card. Its just a card or billet in a plastic case; they don't know whats going to happen. There's no real interest for them to inspect anything until the revelation.

I managed to clean mine up as good as new, after removing a card that had been stuck down for over a year.
Turps on an earbud worked wonders at removing the residue.

Is there a facebook group for this effect?

Long shot - but some of the items I've bought have one

Or is there a thread that I can talk and ask questions and not worry about revealing anything

Basically - I want to see if other people have the same [tiny] 'issue' I'm having

It could be handling [but not sure how to avoid this] - it could be that I'm new to magic

It isn't a major thing

I think this will be a great effect once I've put the practice in

Thanks for any help in pointing me towards a thread/facebook page
