This is one of my all-time favorite card tricks (miracles); because after seeing it, most spectators say, "NO WAY!"
Imagine this; you spread a regular deck of cards face up between your hands. All the cards are seen to be different. You tell your spectator that you want him to remove one card behind your back so there is no way you can see the card he selected. You turn your back towards him and spread out the cards face up behind your back. He is asked to remove any card and not let you see what it is. Next he takes a Sharpie pen and puts his initials on the face of the card. He inserts his card back into the deck anyplace his wants. The deck is squared up. You turn around and turn the deck face down, showing it is a blue-back deck. You tell him earlier that you placed one red-back card in the blue deck. The deck is spread between your hands showing a single red-back card in the spread. You say, "Wouldn't it be amazing if the red-back card was the one you signed?" The spectator, not you, removes the red-back card and turns it over. It is the signed card! Now hear this, everything can be examined.
Positively, no rough/smooth cards, wax or cards stuck together. Fools everyone and is a real reputation maker. No sleights or skill needed. Use your own regular cards. Two different methods given. You will use this. Easy to do.
"Wow, I just read your No Way manuscript. Brilliant, as I knew it would be. I was thinking Rough and Smooth like some permutation of a Brainwave deck, but NO WAY! Thank you for another solid effect at a fair price." - Joey Butler
