A Logical Conclusion

Larry Jennings

A Logical Conclusion by Larry JenningsA trick with eight cards. Two packets of four cards are put on the table. The first packet is counted and shown to consist of four 3s. The second is counted and shown to consist of four 7s. Then the packets are combined turned face up to show the Ace of Hearts through the Eight of Hearts.
