Just one card, merely thought of, mysteriously jumps from one packet to another.
Sound familiar? Of course, and there is no finer example of this treasured classic than Edward G. Brown's Wandering Card, published by Willane, back in 1952.
Usually presented as a stand-alone effect for the platform or stage, Brown's effect has lost none of its popularity over the ensuring years - spawning many variations that tackle the innate difficulty of the crucial packet switch. Unfortunately, many of these have proven to be, for one reason or another, impractical.
Australian card man Ian Baxter now releases a new version, designed exclusively for the close-up performer. In this manuscript, you will learn to perform Brown's wonderful effect right under the noses of your audience. And performance skills, as you might guess with Baxter's history of straightforward mechanics, are extremely modest.
Be advised, however, that this strictly commercial approach does necessitate the use of one faked card, one that in all likelihood, you already have, a double backer. But for the working performer, this is no set-back. Here is a superb mystery destined to be a winner in the close-up stakes and cannot be too highly recommended.
