A spectator freely selects a card (no force) the card is pushed into the center of the deck. The magician gives the deck one cut and immediately spells to the card. A No Memory Self-Working Miracle.
Effect: The performer shows a deck of cards to be well mixed and hands the deck to a participant to cut as many times as he likes. The performer tells the participant to stop cutting whenever he wants and that the top card of the deck will be his selected card. The performer asks the participant to look at the top card of the deck while he looks away. The participant is then instructed to take his selected card, push it into the center of the deck, anywhere he wants, and square the deck. Once he has done so, the performer turns forward and takes the deck saying he will give it one cut. The performer cuts the deck once and places it on the table face down.
The performer tells the participant that he will not touch the deck again. He reminds the participant that he selected a card and returned it to the deck without the performer ever touching the deck. The performer says that he has cut the selected card to a special position that will allow the participant to spell right to his card.
"For example, if you selected the Ace of Spades, then you will spell A-C-E O-F S-P-A-D-E-S, turning one card face up from the top of the deck and dealing it onto the table into a face up pile. When you have finished spelling, you will have spelled right to your card."
While the deck is still on the table, the participant spells the full name of his card by removing the top card of the deck, turning it face up and placing it into a face up pile. While doing so, the participant sees that every card is different. After he has finished spelling the name of his card, he will be stunned to see his card is indeed on top of the deck. He has indeed spelled to his card!
This is about as close to a hands-off miracle as you could ask for. The participant selects and returns a card with the deck in his hands. The performer looks away when the card is returned so he does not know where it was placed in the deck.
The performer takes the deck, gives it one cut, and returns the deck to the table. The performer does not look at the faces of the cards, and he truly does not know the name of the selected card until the participant names it. The only time the performer touches the deck after a card is selected is to give it one cut. The participant deals the cards face up, not the performer. The full name of the card is spelled out each time. The word "of" is always spelled and the suit always has an "s" at the end.
There is nothing to memorize and the effect is self-working. The deck can be reset in a few seconds and the effect can be repeated, if strolling, at another table with a different card being selected.
