A card is selected, returned to the deck, replaced in the box. The performer holds the box facing outward, his fingers positioned so that they encircle it. There seems no possible way for the selected card to escape. Despite this, the selected card is seen to rise up out of the box, right through the performer's index finger. Once the card protrudes from the box it is removed, spun on the finger, taken off the finger, and exhibited with a hole through the card's center.
(This idea was originally developed by Clayton Rawson in the 1930s and published in the Sphinx. Later Pete Biro unearthed it in a column in an old Genii magazine from the 80's.)
