Dr. Daley's Last Trick is very powerful.

I like Anniversary waltz. by Doc Eason. The magic happens between two spectators hands. I learned a subtlety that really sells the effect. Using a DB on the top next to the DF you show both cards and flip them over and slide the DB it sells the Double Face as two distinct cards. Put both cards on the deck and lift off the Double Face.... I have gotten many strong reactions to this...

I like Daryl's "Untouched", the classic "Lazy Magician's Trick" and Chad Long's "Shuffling Lesson", as my favorite in-the-spectator's hands effects.

It does not happen in the spectator's hands, but I like Dai Vernon's Triumph effect - it always goes across very weell and once I did it threee times again and still they did not kknow how it was done.

I, myself, do an in-the-hands version of Anniversary Waltz, that trick alone has landed me most of my job opportunities...

A strong cardtrick using 2 cards, done in the hands of the specs.. ???

Easy..one of the very best..called :

Versa Plus..

Sold by Ken Brooke many years back..even Paul Daniels did it in one of his magic shows..

One of those cards is cut into 4 pieces with a scissor..the card changes place (in the specs hand) with the non-cut card and as a climax the 4 pieces are restored to a complete card..
Very strong..all done in the hands of the specs..
A long forgotten routine..would be great for walk around.. Smile
Mexican turnover on the hand of the spec and a...guess yourself..
But, it's the presentation that *makes* the trick a miracle...

Pls. let me say a few more words re Versa Plus..
It is over 15 years back, I did it the last time, so I digged out the manus..

Here is the introduction to it, written by Ken Brooke..
He thought that highly of it..read on:

quote:
The card effect about to be described is, in my opinion, outstanding. From an original idea by the late Dr. Jacob Daley, Roy Johnson has developped a routine that all who enjoy the finer things of this business will delight in performing.
End of quote

Whenever you can lay hand on this routine/trick, do it..it IS very strong and it all happens in the hands of the spectator..
He assists in having both hands palm up and each hand gets a card..aso. aso.

It is a very clean effect, with a surprising climax..a real reputation marker for walkaround performers and the mentioned Mexican turnover is the only sleight needed, but note, it is NOT amexican turnover done in the traditional way..it is done in a very natural way where the card is held like one normally would hold a card, not at its corner, not a magicians move..

I'm sure Pete Biro knows it and recalls the routine....

you have to try it.
some of my magic friends think too that a double lift is better, but that´s not correct in this case.
the effect on layman is much much greater.
just try it Smile

Also I rate Red Hot Mamma as the greatest OPENER one ever could do to a series of short card routines, the premise of this thread was:

*What are some strong card effects that happen in the spectators hand?*

and red Hot Mamma doesn't exactly fit into this?

There are very very few card tricks that do...and there is a single one outstanding.

Oh, I forgot the real kicker to it.

The kicker is, that the cut in pieces card is not *just* restored, but the pieces are held together with cellophane tape and it all happens in the specs hand.

He holds a card in each hand, aso.

That’s a routine that happens entirely on and in the hands of a spec.

The one and only Red Hot Mamma doesn't, you need a table or the floor, *they* are *just* assisting in selecting and replacing cards. As usual.

When the cards are in the spectators hands how do handle them from not exposing them prematurely?
Like Doc Daley's last card trick.

I don't know what you are thinking of, but what I mentioned isn't Dr. Daleys last trick!
It is much, much better -re spec involvement-, and I would never do Dr. Daleys last trick on a specs hand. There is no motivation for it!
What I thought of IS Versa-Plus. And in this case there is No premature exposure possible. Because BOTH of their hands are occupied. And you’re doing your job keeping their *mind* occupied.

What a shame almost nobody does do this *lettle treek*. It is a reputation maker, a walk around trick, anytime, anywhere.

I too have to renew/practice my handling, but it's worth it after all, I haven't done it for 15 years, but very few card routines can compare under this premise/situation. Stand-up anywhere, anytime. (Of course one has to be 'ready'/prepared for doing it.
