Card Effects



Cut to the Chase $20
by Craig Dickson


The Memorized Deck for the Forgetful


Any card called for is immediately located, in a variety of fashions. One of the most impressive uses is to immediately tell the spectator what position in the deck the card is at. Suiting words to action, the card is counted to at the number the magician stated it would occupy, and it is certainly that thought of card. This only scratches the surface of what can be accomplished.

  • Name the position of any card called.
  • Nothing to memorize
  • Learn in minutes. Comes with Instructional manual, DVD, and two bicycle gaffed cards.

    You claim that you have a prediction.
    The 4 aces are removed from a
    RED deck and placed off to one side.

    The spectator is asked to THINK of ANY card, NOT the SUIT just the VALUE.
    Lets assume they are thinking of a 4.
    Next they are asked to mix the four aces, these are laid out in a row.
    Each ace represents each suit, they select any one of the four aces NO FORCE etc.
    They pick just one ace and that card is used. Lets say they pick hearts.

    In a fair manner they 've selected the 4 of hearts.
    The SAME deck is spread across the table, face up in the deck there is one card and one card only. It is the 4 OF HEARTS!
    The 4 is removed and flipped over it is the ONLY card with a

    JB Magic's Most Visual Item Ever

    The two angels on the back of their card are pointed out. A shake of the card and BOTH angels visually vanish from the back of the card, leaving just two blank spaces! The above sequence is very difficult to imagine just how good this looks.

    In the blink of an eye both angels reappear back on the card!
    The card is then given to the spectator to keep, it is their signed card.
    Each & everyone is hand made by Mark Mason himself.

    From Emerson & West. Seven ancient playing cards are shown to be six black spot cards and one King of Diamonds. The proprietor of a game of chance at an old traveling country fair divides the seven cards into two groups and asks the spectators to wager as to which group contains the Diamond. An elderly Gypsy woman, having wagered and lost, placed a curse upon the man and his game. When next he attempts to operate his game it is found that all the cards are winners! The cards are fanned to show all the faces are Diamond Kings and all the backs are normal!

     COLOR MONTE  $7 


    From Jim Temple. Three cards are shown. Two have a red spot, one has a blue spot. Performer explains that this is a gambling game. If you can find the blue spot you win a $1.00, if you're wrong, you lose $1.00. Performer is going to show how he got taken. He shows blue card on top. He turns it face down and places it on the bottom. When he shows bottom card, it's a red one. He shows top card, it's red. He shows the middle one, it, too, is red. This means so far that he has lost $3.00 because every time he picks the card he thinks is blue, he gets the red. So performer says that he accused the gambler of not even having a blue one. He shows that bottom card is now a blue one, so he's lost another 41.00. Then he says that if it's on the bottom, it can't be on top. Wrong again, because there it is. Then he shows it also in center. So far, he's lost $6.00. So he says that the thinks gambler is using more than three cards. He counts them on the table showing just three. Now he' s lost $7.00. So performer says that gambler gave him a chance to get even, double or nothing. He shows one card has blue spot, other has red. Tell color of third card and we're even. Performer says he was wrong again and ended up losing $14.00. Performer turns over third card as he says this and it has $14 printed on it.

The card can again be shown freely on both sides! The signed card can then be handed to the spectator for examination and as a souvenir!


    Tonte Jr. $15


    Three cards are shown: two black tens, and a jack of spades. The spectator is asked to "find the picture card," but that's not possible, for now the performer holds three black tens- the jack is found inside the magician's pocket! The game is repeated with the four-card set. Again, the spectator is unable to find the jack, for the packet now consists of four tens; the jack is again inside the magician's pocket! The performer suggests that a five card game is too difficult, so one card is set aside. The remaining cards are mixed. The spectator is asked to locate the jack, and of course, suspects that the card that was put aside is the face card. In fact, that card turns out to be a ten. The performer finally comments, "Perhaps Monte is not your game..." He turns the cards over to display a Royal Straight Flush in spades! "You should try Poker, instead!"

    Effect includes all cards needed and complete, illustrated instructions

    Ultimate 3 Card Monte by Michael Skinner $10


    Michael Skinner's vast working repertoire, larger perhaps than any other magician in history, contained some of the most difficult sleight-of-hand tricks imaginable. Yet, one of his pet tricks, a feature of his close-up act at the Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas where he performed for two decades, is this self-working miracle—the Ultimate 3 Card Monte.

    Don’t be fooled by the fact that it almost works by itself, though. Michael Skinner fried audiences with this routine and after he released the secret, the Ultimate 3 Card Monte found itself into the working repertoires of professional close-up magicians all over the world. And now—it can be yours!

    Everything (except a bit of practice) is included in the package —professionally illustrated instructions, original patter, and the specially printed Bicycle-brand cards that make this miracle possible.


     B'WAVE $10


    Phil Goldstein, "Champion of the Amateur," insists on releasing this exceptional effect to the entire magic community. Now you too can astonish audiences with the three stunning punches packed by B'Wave. First, you set four cards face down on the table and ask anyone to imagine that they are the four queens. That person then decides on any queen. With one finger, you spread the tabled cards, the chosen queen is the only one face up! Second, now you turn the queen over and it has a red back. The other 3 cards are blue! Third, as final proof that you knew positively which queen would be named, you turn up the other three cards. They aren't queens, they all have blank faces! No false counts. No sleight of hand. No rough and smooth. No extra cards. No nonsense. Just pure mind boggling magic! B'Wave comes with quality poker size cards, ready to perform. Join the professionals who know a miracle when they do one. Ride the B'Wave!


    KICKBACK $15


    EFFECT: The magician starts by placing the two red Aces off to the side. Two spectators then each select a card and replace them back in the deck. The magician inserts the Aces face-up into the pack, then immediately spreads the deck to reveal two cards between the face-up Aces! The spectators themselves remove these "sandwiched" cards and they are...the two Aces!? The cards in the magician's hand are immediately turned over to reveal the spectator's selections! It's just that clean and visual!
      The included booklet describes the original version of KickBack along with updated handlings from Chris Korn, Paul Wilson and Ryan Swigert. You'll learn how to perform this magic underground hit with signed selections, using a borrowed deck and even using cards with different colored backs!

    "I think the reason he calls it Kickback is because when he showed it to me I fell over backwards." -Mac King "A great effect. Ryan has developed a truly righteous card trick, with a slap in the face ending!" -Aaron Fisher "If you don't learn and start performing KickBack, then you're a sucker." -Lee Asher "KickBack is by far one of my all-time favorite sandwich effects to perform on both laymen and magicians alike." -Luke Dancy "An instant classic. Few tricks hit people as hard as Kickback. It went straight into my 'killer' file." -Paul Wilson  "Ryan's KickBack does exactly that to your audience-it 'kicks' their head back with the surprise ending. I have been using this for the past few years and it has become a permanent part of my repertoire. It is the strongest card trick in years and is perfect for ANY performing situation." -Chris Korn  "Great visual magic!" -Bill Malone "The ending of KickBack completely threw me for a loop. It's definitely ahead of the curve!" -Michael Eaton "Kickback is simply one of the best new card effects of this generation." -David Regal "KickBack is diabolical, devilish, and wicked!" -J.B. Benn  "Quick and sharp- the ending is a truly magical experience not to be missed!" -Sebastian Clergue

     PSI-CON RUSE $15 by Phil Goldstein

     An Approach to Dr. Jaks' classic "Supersonic" (without the stand).

    Effect: A spectator is asked to freely shuffle a deck of cards. The mentalist displays a book on divination, explaining that he has been studying Cartomancy-the ancient system of telling fortunes with playing cards.

    An envelope is then given to the participant to hold and the performer says, "Even though we've never met before, inside this envelope is a Cartomantic reading that I've prepared just for you. Let's see if the system works!"

    The top five cards of the shuffled pack are taken and displayed by being inserted into the edge of the book. The spectator is told to choose any of the five cards. The selected card is, for example, the four of clubs. The four unchosen cards are shown to be all different. When the fortune message is removed from the envelope, it reads:

    "You have a compassionate nature and strong leadership potential. Your sense of humor is admired by others. Your lucky card is the four of clubs!"

    Includes detailed, 8-page booklet written by Phil Goldstein and fully-illustrated by Tony Dunn and the five specially-printed cards on Bicycle stock that make this effect possible.

    Sidewalk Shuffle Redone by Martin Lewis $20


    Simple, Streamlined and Sassy!

    A Martin Lewis classic (how many magicians first learned of Martin Lewis, in fact) has been streamlined for an even greater impact, with three phases and an incredible surprise climax.

    The magician displays three blank jumbo-sized (4.5" by 7") cards along with an Ace.

    One of the blank cards is placed aside and a "three card monte" is performed with the remaining two blank cards and the Ace. The spectators can never find the Ace, but no wonder...the magician reveals that all three of the cards in his hands are blank and it was the Ace that was placed aside! This is repeated once more and on the third time when the spectators are asked to guess where the Ace is they'll of course say that it's on the table...but now the card on the table is shown to be blank, and the three cards in the magician's hands are all shown to be Aces!

    bulletOnly the same four cards are used throughout-no ditching, etc.
    bulletComes complete, with four jumbo Bicycle-backed cards and illustrated 8-page booklet.

    Sudden Deck - David Regal $25


    Watch the Video

    Image  A deck is produced from a flat box, assembled in from of the audience. Stunning.

    Image  Comes complete with the ingenious custom-crafted, precision-made gimmicked card case that makes this amazing routine possible and detailed, photo-illustrated instructions.
    Image  The magician removes a unfolded, empty card case from his pocket and displays it to the audience. "I do this to save space. Did you know that a card box is just a piece of cardboard that's been folded up?"
    Image  He shows the opened box on all sides, then folds the cardboard back into the shape of a card box. He snaps his fingers, opens the flap and pulls out a full deck of regulation playing cards with which to perform his next miracle!

     The Web $10


    Jim Pace's "The Web" will out impact any other effect in your repertoire. For those that want to go for the jugular and take no prisoners, the Web gets a more visceral reaction than any card effect ever created! In fact, there are some people you simply should not do this effect for because it starts out so innocently, yet ends with such a startling reaction! The effect, this makes 'em jump up and scream! Four blank cards are counted onto the spectator's palm up hand. Then pictures of spider webs appear and disappear from the faces of the cards. To conclude, the spectator is asked to wave his hands over the cards. As he does, he discovers a large, realistic spider on the back of his hand. The spider is undetectable, and you are way ahead! At the right time, in the right place, this receives an unprecedented response!


    John Bannon
    Twisted Sisters 2 w/ DVD $15 

    EFFECT: The performer displays two packets of face-down cards, each packet containing four cards. One packet is red-backed and the other is blue-backed. The packets are tabled, and a spectator is allowed to select either the red or blue packet. Whichever packet he selects is used. There is no magician force!

    The spectator is asked to imagine that his packet consists of four face-down queens. Once this is done, he is to think of any one of the four queens - hearts, clubs, spades or diamonds. Again, this is totally free choice! A second spectator is now directed to concentrate on the remaining four-card packet, and like the first spectator, is allowed to think of a different queen.

    Now, without touching the cards, the performer claims he has caused the two selections to trade places. The first spectator names his card, the performer spreads his packet, and the queen he merely thought of is reversed face up in the packet. This astounding feat is repeated with the second spectator's queen! And there's more!

    The performer points out that if each of the spectator's queens really traveled across, then the backs of the selected queen would also have traveled across. The face-up queen in the red packet is turned over - it has a blue back! Now the face-up queen in the blue packet is turned over - it has a red back! The effect is truly unbelievable. And there is still more!

    The performer points out that it is very interesting that the two spectators selected the particular two queens they did.. BECAUSE THE REST OF THE CARDS ARE NOT EVEN QUEENS AT ALL - THEY ARE JOKERS! And you turn them all face up to prove it!

    How many moves does this require? Not one! No sleight -of-hand necessary! The method is simple and elegant. The plot is clear and concise. Comes complete with a detailed booklet of crystal-clear instructions and illustrations, all the necessary cards (Bicycle) to perform the effect, and a handsome wallet to store them in.   Now with DVD
