Cards to impossible location has always been a big hit with spectators. This routine by magician Ray Noble has entertained people for a number of years. It hits hard and takes no prisoners along the way.
The magician has three cards selected and at least one signed with a marker. Each card one at a time are placed back into the deck and the deck is set aside. The magician now asks if everyone would like to see him find all three cards in a magical and amazing way. With a wink and a smile, he reaches with an empty hand into his shirt or coat pocket and removes one of the three cards. How did the card get there? Without skipping a beat, he now lifts the close up mat and lying UNDER the CENTER of the mat is the second card. No one ever saw that one coming. Ribbon spreading the cards face down, the magician asks the person who has signed a card to use their intuition and place their finger on the back of the card that they FEEL is their signed card. This card is picked up and turned over .. do I really have to tell you what card it is?
All three cards can be signed if you want. This routine uses basic card techniques. (With 'basic' we mean that you will need to have a sound foundation in the basic card techniques and know what is meant when you see words such as Palm, Briddle Grip, Double, Swing Cut, Cascade, Tenki Palm, and Table Rest. These are basic card techniques and are not explained how to do them in this ebook. The two card handlings that move a card to different locations and are not basic card moves are fully explained along with photos.)

Last statement of the effect description says: "This routine uses BASIC card techniques". Well, I presume the word "basic" can be very subjective… Disappointed by another misleading description.
