The performer shows a blue deck of cards and has a card freely selected from the face up deck. There is no force. He has a participant sign his name on the face of the card. This signed-card is then placed into a window envelope. The audience can see the BLUE back of the card through the glassine window. This envelope is propped up and left in full view. The performer introduces a BLANK FACE card that
has a RED back; this is examined by the participant and found to be ungimmicked. This blank face card is placed inside a second window envelope so the red back shows through the glassine window. This
envelope is also propped up so the audience can see the red-backed card through the window.The two envelopes can be placed far apart to enhance the effect.
The performer states that he will attempt to teleport the ink and the participant's signature off the blue card and cause it to appear on the examined blank face red-backed card. He does just that, when the
selected blue back card is removed from the window envelope, the face is found to be blank. The participant can examine this card as much as he likes. His signature and the ink have vanished, leaving nothing but a blank face card with a blue back.
When the red-backed card is removed from the second envelope, it is no longer blank. It is the signed selected card, but now on the red-backed card. The participant may keep this card as a souvenir.
Baffling beyond words, and a strange effect that will be long remembered.
BONUS EFFECT: Includes a bonus trick in which two signed playing cards exchange places while inside envelopes. Again no double lifts or card sleights of any kind used to accomplish the bonus effect.
Complete directions on how to easily make this up. No waxes, sticky stuff, rough & smooth or stuck
together cards. No carbons, fake or duplicate signatures. So easy to do that you will fool yourself. You will marvel at the ingenuity of this effect. Baffling beyond words!
