“Cosmic Connection” — and that’s TWO decks! But well worth it; a really fine effect!
I feel more like I do now than I did before.

Invisible deck is the only gaffed deck I use regularly. It's just too strong not to use. And though it does take up a bit of pocket space, at least it cannot be seen Smile

In Phil Goldstein's book FOCUS (Phil has been Max Maven now for many years) will find a trick called "Impressions" was one of his closely guarded secrets for years.....

I had a deck custom-made for me many years ago for this by the late Neil Lester (Cards by Martin).

If you ever saw this done, you'd probably want to have a custom card maker make you this deck.

Contact Colors by Aldo Colombini

Good suggestion. I like this trick a lot, but there's quite a bit of set-up, so having a deck dedicated to this routine is a great idea.

I also like to keep a deck ready with Anniversary Waltz.

That's a great effect and one of my favourites along with Pre-deck-ability however in a working situation I don't find Contact Colors very practical due to the amount of table space required.

The Invisable Deck kills. I was setting up some trick and the girl, looking bored said; "Show me a GOOD trick!" I put the cards away and said; "Let's use our imaginations." When I revealed the card, she was stunned and the rest of the family was hooting with laughter! (It can have a disadvantage, I had one kid who just couldn't think of a card! I had to lead him virtually by the hand to get a card out of him! I swear, it looks like I'm trying to mentally force a card on him!)

I managed to "reverse engineer" a card transportation trick I saw John Scarne do at the climax of a beer commercial. It required breaking up TWO decks!
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

I like doing my own brainwave. They end up choosing, without knowing it, the only different color card with their own name on the back. Then, as a kicker, I hand them the deck. It is clean and normal!
