Out To Lunch is a great one to use with your business cards. Best to make your own, I have had very bad luck with the commercial product (mis-matched ink color).

Cheek to Cheek card deck - hardly anybody seems to do it

Ellusionist's Black Tiger Invisible deck
Dan Harlan's "The Self-Working Card Deck"
Coin Unique or Scotch & Soda or Vodka & Orange Juice

and, I like Crazy Cube!

Wow, I didn't know anyone did Crazy Cube anymore. I have sold hundreds of them (when they used to be $1.00). Still a great effect when done properly.

IMHO the best self working trick of all time has got to be the "Invisable Deck"

BUT, as has been said many times already, it still takes a lot of practice to get your presentation flawless.

John Bannon's Timely Departure,in my opinion.A favorite hour is chosen and this amount of cards are removed from the deck(both are unknown to the performer).3 cards are remembered and vanish from the deck.The secret hour is then revealed by the magician!
The deck is then spread to show that the cards have returned and are now face-up!
Easy to do.
Although I say this,the book in which it is found is certainly not a beginner's book.After Mark Wilson's Complete Course in magic and RRTCM/Card College,you will be able to try Bannon's Smoke and Mirrors.

Selfworking = no sleights?

anyway, the lazy man card trick really blew me away the first few time someone did it on me

Heheh

Self-working?

Wouldn't that mean that you would need a deck of cards that did all the work itself, double lifting, shuffling, cutting, etc, without you touching it?

Maybe we should call them "Almost Self-working".
At least some work is required if you want the magic to work.

The Karl Fulves books are full of great "self-working" tricks. The good thing about self-workers is that, free from having to master sleights, you can concentrate on the presentation. Slipping an odd self-working trick into a set of sleight-of-hand magic can be a real magician-fooler!
