Hi!

What your favorite Homing Card version?
My own favorite is Homing Card ala Ascanio, 'cause I love the sleights it requires.

Kaps. But I do recommend looking at Larry Jennings' handling.

Jennings handling is awesome, nut Kaps presentation is killer stuff!
But I prefer Fred Kaps presentation and Mike Rogers handling.

I like the one by Braue, which I guess is what people mean when they say "Kaps," right? Although, I have to admit, I never really understood the last part and had to improvise, a bit. I don't know that many versions of it; I'd be curious to see the other handlings mentioned above.

I like Trevor Lewis'/Bob Sheets' handling. It's a jumbo card version but you could easily adapt it for close up.

Yes it is. Both effects have the same name. But it isn't the same effect as the one that is being discussed in this thread. Carlyle's Homing card is a card to pocket effect. The effect in question here is. Five cards are shown all are supposed to be red. But the magician discovers that he has mistakenly put a black card in place of a red one. The black card is discarded and the effect is attempted with 4 read cards once again one of the four red cards changes back to the black card that was seen earlier. This continues till the magician has only one red card left. That also changes into the black card.

I believe Bro. Hamman also has a handling of this effect; the Kaps version. Hamman MAY have created it!

Brother John does have a version of this effect but he did not create it. The original was in the booklet Show Stoppers With Cards. Written by Jean Hugard, and Fred Braue. The Version that Fred Kaps performed is The one taught in Show Stoppers with Cards.

I prefer ny own "Rough Return" version from "Small But Deadly" because there are no sleights. The routine was recently adapted specifically for kids by Ricky McLeod and Gary Dunn and released in the UK under the title "Cakes and Adders.

The earliest version of the effect, or at least one that possibly inspired the others was a lightweight item with four aces where the AS being removed kept coming back, given as a cod expanation for an ace assembly. This appeared in the FIRST issue of Genii magazine. I've lost my notes on this but the routine if memory serves may have been credited to Larson and T Page Wright, anyone with a copy could check. This appeared before "Showstoppers With Cards"

Paul it's been quite sometime since I have looked at Show Stoppers With Cards. I think Hugard and Braue may have mentioned Larson and Wright. I'm not sure if someone has the booklet handy they may step in and fill in the details to if they did etc... I think I had read also that the Homing card was preceded by a similar effect named The card comes back. But that could have come after what had been published in S.W.C's.

The introduction to The Homing Card, in Show Stoppers With Cards, reads as follows:

"There are very few 'sight' cards tricks [sic] for use in club and lodge work which are genuinely amusing, such as The Six Repeat and The Fantastic Fan (Miracle Methods No.4). The following is a genuinely new card trick with a new plot -- that of a card which is repeatedly discarded from a fan of cards, and as repeatedly returns to the fan. Given an amusing presentation, it is almost as good an audience trick as Six Repeat."

Hope that helps.

Yep, my vote goes to Fred Kaps as well .
By failing to prepare, we are preparing to fail.

I like Aldo Colombini's version from the Greater Magic Homing Card DVD. It looks very magical and utilizes no gaffs or roughed cards. It is also within the reach of intermediate cardmen. Colombini is well known for marketing magic to beginning and intermediate magicians, and he does it very well.

Aldo also used a gaff version, his version of Garcia's "Five Card Stunner" which he markets as "5 Card Mystery". I have used it, and it entertains, but I was never 100% convinced of the ending to this in which you change the procedure.

The routine I referred to earlier from the first Genii magazine, dated September 1936, can be found on page 6, "The Error Aces" by T. Page Wright & William W. Larsen, Sr.
