Brainwave Miracles by Jim Sisti

From the introduction:

The magician claims to have taken a playing card from a completely different pack and reversed it in the deck placed in plain view. The spectator is then asked to merely think of any card. After the selection is made, the magician picks up the pack, removes it from its case, and spreads through the cards, displaying the spectator's choice as the only card face up. When it's removed from the pack, it's turned over to display a completely different back color, thus proving the magician's claim that it originated in a completely different pack.

Grandpa's Fruit Knives by Jim Sisti

From the introduction:

One of the things that I had to come to grips with when I became a full-time professional performer more than 20 years ago was that I needed to stop focusing on tricks that I liked and had to find ones that my spectators liked.

Da quest'immagine Mr. Sisti ha costruito...

Jazzy Transposition 2 by Jim Sisti

Four Jokers mysteriously vanish from one place and reappear in another...

The cards certainly appear ordinary...but your audience will be rubbing its eyes as four bicycle-riding Kings disappear right off the faces of four Jokers one at a time and reappear on the faces of previously blank cards. It even happens when a spectator places their finger on one of the blank cards!

Here in more details what the spectators see:

Two packets of cards are introduced, one containing four Jokers, the other four blank-faced cards. One Joker is set aside as a "leader card" and the others are tabled....

Magic Menu volume 12, number 1 (autumn 2009) by Jim Sisti

This is the "We're Back!" issue. The Magic Menu ceased publication in 2001. In 2009 Jim Sisti brought it back to life expanding the focus to professional Close-Up Magicians rather than exclusively Restaurant and Bar. Jim's observation was that the opportunities for close-up magicians have changed and expanded, which prompted him to change the focus of his magazine, too.
