IGG - According to Wikipedia "This is the most common type of antibody found in humans. It protects the body from infection."
IGG - Here this means "Instant Gig Getter". It insulates your performance from potential spectator disinterest. It also 'infects' your participant with absolute amazement.
IGG is an instant killer. You could ideally do this for someone from whom you may be soliciting a gig - an agent or a VIP client etc.
Right in the beginning, you push a single playing card into the participant's pocket without showing it to him. Then you ask him to check the playing card against his date of birth which he does. He will be shocked to see that it is exactly the same card which he takes out from his own pocket.
As a nice kicker, even a word against his date of birth is impossibly predicted by you and you also explain the hidden meaning of that word. Most likely you will get that gig.
No sleights, no stooges and no pre show. No stack, no gaff playing cards and in fact no playing cards at all, except the one for the prediction. No peeks, no tears, no impressions, no threads, no electronics, no PA or BA. The prediction is totally open and ungimmicked. This is simple, easy, clean and direct. Everything you will need is included here and you can start performing right away.
Special Revelation - A very special revelation idea is also included which may alone be possibly worth the cost of the entire offering. Here you ask the participant to openly read the prediction aloud right at the beginning. Then after the routine, when the participant again reads the same prediction aloud, the revelation will hit him hard in the face in a very unconventional and innovative manner.
Also included are several alternate revelation ideas.

This is an effect that I mentioned in an email to THE UNKNOWN MENTALIST that I wasn't particularly fond of because of the methodology.
HOWEVER, after buying the eBook and receiving the cards in the mail and seeing THE UNKNOWN MENTALIST'S thoughts behind this all I can say is I WAS WRONG.
I haven't really tried this effect yet but the spectator thinking that you thought of the card he selected AND the word will drive them crazy.
THE UNKNOWN MENTALIST'S thinking on this effect is SUPERB along with the price right now.
You owe it to yourself to get this GREAT, SIMPLE EFFECT, and try it on the spectator and see their reaction.
I suggest using THE UNKNOWN MENTALIST'S handling of this effect where he writes something down instead of using a playing card for the prediction. I also suggest using performance tip number 3 in the eBook.
I recommend this very highly for the spectator's surprise for the card and word reveal.
Well done UNKNOWN MENTALIST
