I have previously purchased all of Hektor Cards and Thought the Houdini Spirit Board was great (by the way if you already have this Hektor has a great update with Virtual Reality

This New Card is the Best in the Series;

It looks and Feels like a normal credit card so can be placed in your wallet and ready to go at a moment’s notice
Included with the card is a link to a 32 page PDF Manual with 25 Effects at your disposal

Everything form short effects to items that can play a lot longer

As previously mentioned you would probably only do 2 or 3 effects at one time but with a huge selection to pick from would be great to keep in your wallet all the time and idea for walk around as you would not have to repeat same effects

Anyone who is considering purchasing this I would highly recommend contacting Hektor and get your own Personalised Card while you have a chance

Highly Recommend


Just want to agree with the above. If you carry a wallet and what magician doesn't, this should be in it. Vastly improved card. I had the original and some of the wording wore off. Not this one.
I recommend as well.
If you can't help worrying, remember worrying can't help you!

Agreed, Hektor is very easy to deal with, the card looks great and if it's the sort of thing you think you can use there's simply no reason not to carry it around. There are enough effects there that you can play with them all (which is what I'm doing at the moment) and settle into the ones you like to use.

David, Morgan, thank you for sharing your opinions and for your kind words!

All these positive feedbacks motivates me to continue creating new props and effects. It’s a pleasure for me to create them and use them and they are always in my wallet.

Here is the official trailer:

And... Aligator, this is one review from few days ago by Mark Strivings (the creator of the legendary SUC peek wallet):
“Here’s something that pretty much any magician who carries credit cards of any sort can use. It looks great, is very well made and with the range of available options present with this card just about anyone will be able to find something they can use it for, regardless of your performing style.”

I'll start off by saying that this card is so good it will fool anyone, even someone from a bank.

If it looks like the one in the video Pablo posted it won’t fool anyone that works in a bank or in banking in general.

I’m not saying it’s not a good trick but it is instantly recognisable as not genuine if you work in banking.

Hi Mark. Who is Pablo and where is this video?
Well, believe me, no one spectator will start examining the card very closely because for them this is just a normal item which you use to assist you for your presentation.
It looks pretty nice and very close to real credit card (same material, innocent design...).

Of course if you give it to some bank officer and ask him “ Hey, please check is it real credit card or not” they will know. But who need to do this!? Nobody goes with gimmicked playing cards in casino to ask them to check are they real, or with other magic props to ask some specialists are they real... Nobody need this. So just take the card out from your wallet and make some great effects to your spectator. And believe me all will be fine.

There are so many different design credit cards in the world so this looks real enough.

Sorry it wasn’t pablo that posted the vid it was you, similar avatar and I was rushing. I was just addressing the comment that it would fool bank staff, it wouldn’t not even from 10 paces but that’s not really its purpose. I think the Your Name gag and mental card logo pretty much reveals it isn’t a real card even to people not involved in banking so the banking tell is academic. I have no doubt that it is a great piece of mental magic to carry in your wallet.

Thanks Mark. Yes, that’s I mean - the people just enjoying the show and not think about is it real card or not. They think about the effects not about the prop.

But there is an option the card to be purchased with the performer’s REAL name on it (instead of the “Your name” gag), so many people prefer and did this. Actually I received many great feedbacks. People like the card and the included effects (you can read some reviews here too). Actually with 25 effects almost everyone can find something good for him.

But if we speak about - is the card looks like real credit card - it was fun to me to test this several times. I gave it (the version with my real name on it) to pay in some shops and courier office and all of them accept it 😀 Only one of them asked me “Why it have no chip”, but I answered that it is old and if he want I can pay with another card and he said: “No, it’s Ok, I will use the magnetic line” 😀 Of course these was just few tests and after that I paid with another card.

But as we discussed earlier- this is not necessary. This is magicians thinking. In real the spectators enjoying the show and do not think about is it real credit card or not even with the “Your name” gag on it. Actually many magicians prefer to have this gag on their card.

Looking like a credit card is just for esthetic sake. It's not about fooling bank tellers. Yes it is a magic card unique to magicians. Is that a bad thing? I don't think so. The layman I have performed this for just love, how it's used with cards and my phone. Don't worry about it's authenticity. What matters is the effect it has on your audience Smile
No matter how many times you say the wrong thing, it will NEVER be right.

If I'm not responding to you? It's because you're a TROLL!

I agree with Senor. The way it is employed with and perceived by the audience is what matters. Authenticity should not be an issue.

Some people asked me what are the effects included in the Mental Card. Well, the list is soooo big... But... Here it is:

1. Canada Force: The spectator chooses a word from the credit card text and uses it to select a country. He starts thinking about it and the magician reads the spectator's mind revealing that there is an interesting coincidence – the credit card is from the same country as the spectator’s selection!

2. ESP multi outs (Star, Square, Wavy Lines): The spectator chooses one of the ESP symbols on the back side of the credit card and surprisingly find out that his choice was predicted.

3. ESP force (Star/Cross): The spectator chooses one of the ESP symbols on the back side of the credit card. The selected symbol is only in his mind and nobody knows which one it is. Using his smart phone the magician makes a fantastic revelation and the spectator watching the screen sees how the credit card transforms and the selected symbol visually reveals itself!

4. Date revelation (Force 1089): The spectator writes down a freely selected three-digit number and after some small calculation creates a number which surprisingly is the same as the credit card date!

5. Read a number (or a country) in your spectator’s mind: The spectator thinks of and writes down a three-digit number and after some small calculations he chooses a single digit from the result. He checks what country corresponds to his chosen number on the list and starts thinking about it. The magician correctly reads the spectator's mind and finds out which country he was thinking of.

6. Mental traveling (France Force): Using his age and the date of your credit card with which the traveling will be payed for, the spectator finds out which country is perfect for his vacation. The magician reads the spectator's mind and reveal where in the world the spectator has traveled in his thoughts.

7. “8D force” prediction: The spectator picks a card which surprisingly is the same as illustrated on the logo of the magician’s credit card!

8. Your name: The spectator’s name is written on the magician’s credit card. Well… It’s just a nice little joke.

9. China Force (Force number 19): Using the serial number of the credit card the spectator selects a number. Using that number, the spectator thinks of a corresponding country from a list on the credit card holder and the magician reads the spectator's mind revealing the country.

10. Universal “4x4” Magic square: The spectator chooses a number. The magician not only guesses that number but creates an impossible looking square with numbers that add up in all directions to the spectator’s chosen number!

11.“165” Force: Using his intuition the spectator creates several different numbers from the bank telephone number written on the credit card. It looks like his intuition is really strong because the final sum of the created numbers is exactly same as the credit card secret security number!

12. Queen Anne: Using his intuition the spectator creates several numbers from the bank telephone number written on the credit card. When added up he finds out what the year of birth is of some historical person which his intuition led him to choose.
After that he picks a card. The magician opens a virtual reality using the camera of his phone and on the screen the spectator can see how the credit card transforms into the same playing card and historical person which the spectator has chosen!

13. Russia Force (3х3 Magic square 15): From the telephone number written on the credit card the spectator selects a number which leads him to choose the corresponding country from a list. The performer reads spectator's mind and correctly find out which country the spectator chose.

14. “No” force: The spectator guesses the exact word which was hidden by the performer. A coincidence, telepathy, or … just a joke

15. “Circle & Triangle” force: The spectator chooses and thinks of two geometric figures. He soon finds out that they were correctly predicted on the credit card. Is that intuition, extrasensory perception, coincidence or influence!?

16. “Shuffle-Bored” prediction: The spectator freely shuffles a deck of cards, turns over some cards face up and some face down while continuing to shuffle them. At the end the magician, using his credit card, shows a perfect prediction which states the exact number of turned over cards, what they are, and what is the only chosen card!

17. The Bank number (Force 37): The spectator chooses and thinks of a number which later surprisingly is revealed to be the same as the bank number on the credit card.

18. Credit card between two spectator’s playing cards: The magician shuffles a deck of cards and the spectator inserts the credit card into the deck. The magician then points out the logo of the credit card which looks like it includes the symbols of the Two of Hearts and Three of Diamonds. Surprisingly these are the exact cards that the spectator has placed the credit card between!

19. Which Pocket (One question version): The spectator puts the Mental Card in one of his pockets and using a telepathic connection the magician finds out in which pocket the credit card has been placed.

20. Which Pocket (No questions version): The spectator puts the Mental Card in one of his pockets and using a telepathic connection the magician finds out in which pocket the credit card is.

21. QH revelation: The spectator picks a playing card and the magician explains to him that this choice was mentally influenced by him. To prove this he shows him the symbol of that playing card which is built in into the QR code of the credit card.

22.Virtual Reality: Using the camera of a phone the spectator sees on the screen how the credit card transforms and reveal the spectator’s selected card, chosen year or ESP symbol in a highly visual way.

23. Emergency intuition: There is a theory that in emergency situations people increase their extrasensory perceptions and their intuition can lead them to correct choices. In an interesting experiment the spectator really finds the correct emergency phone number which he needs to solve his problems.

24. PIN revelation in reverse: Using his intuition the spectator finds the PIN code of magician’s credit card.

25. Universal prediction: Using dial country numbers and a virtual die the spectator creates a number which the magician correctly predicts.
