I was just wondering what you guys talk about while performing a Torn and Restored card effect. Most people simply state the obvious"---I will rip this card (rips card) and now I'll put it back together (he puts it back together)".

Any thoughts?

Better question is WHY would you want to rip up a playing card. And so neatly too? Answer that and you have something to talk about.

Jay Sankey has a nice take on this. His presentation works for him. He has performed it on "Grand Illusions" series that was on TLC (I believe).

So the hard part is now for you to come up with your own reason.
Cheers,
David

Darwin Ortiz's version is based around an IOU that the spectator has signed.

The card is torn to show how someone tried to get out of paying the IOU. It is restored showing how the magician collected. The torn corner is not restored to stop it becoming a collectable IOU again.
