There were a lot of excellent items put out in 2017. I only got to personally sample a little, but out of those, here are my favorites.

Some of what I found as exceptional items in 2017, in no particular order.

Physical Products
Stealth Case - Steve Cook
Stop The Presses – Martin Lewis
Visions – Mathew Wright
The Gift – Angelo Carbone
Hands Off Multiple ESP System – Neil Tobin
Ophiuchus - Mark Chandaue

T.I.T.E. – Red Devil

Nu Collection – Alain Nu, Penguin video
Bobby Mota Live – Penguin video
Lior Manor Live – Penguin video
Anthony Blake Live – Penguin video
David Parr Live – Penguin video (may be more bizarre than mentalism, but it crosses over and his lessons on showmanship apply here)

There are some other products I might have added to the list, but have not spent enough time with them to have a strong opinion, this goes for several videos as well as ebooks and physical products. Others were great adaptations of other items, but not original enough to add to the list, like the fantastic Justice Pad.

A study of Pete McCabe's two-volume Scripting Magic project will advance the performance of any performing mentalist.

Eric Samuel's Devious Aspirations advances the classic Becker Sneak Thief kind of effect.

Tony, I really like your list and several of your items sent me to my favorite magic dealer to investigate. You mentioned there are several other videos, books, and products you like but didn’t make the list; Would you be open to creating an honorable mention list? I am working to expand my awareness of what is out there in the mentalism market.
