#3 in Cards bestsellers
A wonderful self-working rendition of the classic "Out Of This World" effect. This was the first real card trick I saw - and I was baffled.
A borrowed deck is shuffled. A red and a black card are placed face up on the table. The performer then removes cards, one at a time from the deck. Without the spectator seeing the faces of these cards, he indicates whether he thinks a card is a red or a black. If he thinks it is a red card, the performer places it, face down, on the face up red card. If the spectator thinks it is a black card, the performer places it face down on the face up black card. The performer even hands a pack of cards to the spectator to place them according to his liking on the red or black pile.
When the cards are finally turned face up, it is found that the spectator was 100% correct, he successfully called the correct color of each and every card!

Let’s start by saying that this is the routine that Eugene Burger used for most of his career. It’s direct, straightforward magic. Well worth the small investment.

A fantastic addition to the standard Out of this World routine, fully eliminating any need to stack the deck beforehand, making this perfect for a borrowed deck!

If you don't know OOTW, this is a great (not to mention great value) version and well worth getting. If you already are well aware of the basic trick and the many variants around, this is still excellent.

EXCELLENT version of Out of This World! I've heard about it for years, but it's hard to find.
Correction: It WAS hard to find. And it was worth the wait.

Last night I asked Chris if he had this manuscript.
His answer speaks for itself: "I have this manuscript but it was not yet converted. But since it was only two pages I did it overnight and uploaded it. You can now get it."
Great work. Great guy.
