The FASTEST "CARD TO POCKET" EVER!
The Madman’s Card To Pocket was designed in order to produce a “smack in the face” moment for Ben's day-to-day performances and media interviews. It’s something direct, to the point and utterly impossible in appearance. The effect is all over in a matter of seconds, but this directness—which seems to eliminate the possibility that you could have cheated or manipulated the moment in any way—is what makes this so powerful.
EFFECT: A card is selected (free choice), signed and returned to the deck. The deck is IMMEDIATELY handed to a spectator—the performer’s hands being otherwise empty (really). IMMEDIATELY, and with a truly empty hand, the performer removes the just signed card from his jacket’s inner breast pocket.
As per the warning on the front over, a minor clothing modification is required. Once done, it’s invisible and does not affect the apparel’s wear-ability in any way. Ben has had the mod made in most of his jackets and suits, including a two thousand dollar Versace suit. This is direct and powerful magic. As an alternative, you can also present this as an INSTANT "Card To Sealed Envelope" routine.
