Nefesch
Glastion by Nefesch

This is probably the most visual signed card at impossible location effect available today. The spectator's signed card penetrates a borrowed and sealed bottle.

  • The bottle can be borrowed and is completely ungimmicked
  • The signature that appears on the card inside the bottle is the signature of the spectator
  • It can be a drawing or a signature - anything
  • The card in the bottle is the card the spectator signs - no duplicate or switch.
A deck of cards is introduced and a card is selected and signed across it's face. This is then replaced back into the deck and the deck is shuffled by the...

Ray Grismer
Glaces by Ray Grismer

This effect was invented by Herbert Milton and made popular by Karl Germain. The improved method needs no double-faced cards and can be done impromptu providing the right type of glass is available. This visual effect can be performed at any time in your act and it may be done silently, with talk, or to music.

EFFECT: A shuffled deck of cards is placed in a stem goblet. Each time a handkerchief is flicked in front of the glass an ace appears.

Cameron Francis
Give 'em the Business by Cameron Francis

Get ready for five high octane, visual business card effects! From the introduction:

As magicians, we all love giveaways: signed cards, signed matchbooks, signed coins. Or, if you're Rune Klan, signed bologna. I think most of us would have to agree, though, that the best giveaway of all is a business card. And if you are able to magically alter the card before handing it out, well, all the better. It makes the card that much more special; a conversation piece for the spectator. And there's no better publicity than great word of mouth.

Effects:

Another Merger -- A two signatures and...

Satish B
Girl Power by Satish B

This is a woman empowered card trick. The spectator (preferably a woman) randomly selects a group of cards from the middle of the deck and deals them into four face-down piles. The top card of each pile is turned over to reveal the four Kings. Suddenly she finds the matching Queens. Sounds familiar, right? But this routine goes one further. When all the cards under the Queens are spread, they are of matching suits. This trick is free of any sleights.

Vincent "Vinny" Boyar
Ghostly Seconds by Vincent "Vinny" Boyar

A version of a strike-second deal that the author calls the "shutter" method, referring to the shutter of a camera.

This version could be easier for some to perform than a classic strike-second because the coordination of the thumbs is built into the method itself. While the author claims that his method is practically self-working, there is some amount of practice necessary to acquire the knack. Still, his discovery has earned the praise of top-flight card experts, who have called it perfect in action and imperceptible to the keenest observer.

The second deal is an indispensable sleight...

Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph
Ghost Corner by Ralf (Fairmagic) Rudolph

A corner of a playing card is torn off. The magician pretends to grab the card at the missing corner. Despite the fact that he is not touching the card he can still lift and turn the card while holding on to this missing corner.

The effect goes back to Lubor Fiedler. However, Lubor's method is completely different and had the disadvantage that you couldn't show the back of the card. With Ralf's solution you can show both front and back while you are holding the card at the missing corner.

Getting the Message by Aldo Colombini

Created by Cameron Francis. Performed by Aldo Colombini. You introduce a packet of four cards blank on both sides. You split the cards into two piles of two cards each.

Jon Racherbaumer
Gene Castillon's Redoubling the Double Cut by Jon Racherbaumer

Gene Castillon presented this lecture at a meeting of Ring #27 IBM in the early 70’s, calling it "The Double Undercut Routine". This routine was designed to feature only one sleight or move—the Double Undercut. To prove the versatility and usefulness of this one move, Gene incorporated into one routine a series of different effects all accomplished by this one move. As you will discover, there are magic appearances, a simple sandwich prediction, several Ace tricks, a poker deal, and a simple triumph trick.

When recently asked to lecture again, Gene pulled out his old lecture notes and was surprised...

Dr. Hans-Christian Solka
Gaukelwerk with Cards by Dr. Hans-Christian Solka

A new, potentially faster, method to clock a deck of cards.

'Clocking' a deck of cards means applying some kind of counting method to identify one card that has been removed from the deck. The idea is very old and dates back to at least 1708 (Jaques Ozanam's Recreations Mathematical and Physical). Typically one makes two passes through the deck. The first to identify the value of the card, and the second to identify the suit. The key in making this method deceptive is to be very fast in your counting, which is dependent on the details of the counting procedure. Dr. Solka offers a new method,...
