Quite possibly the BEST magical monte type routine ever devised, Martin Lewis' Sidewalk Shuffle came out in the early 1970's and Haines House of Cards still produces and sells it. Why? Because it is quite possibly the BEST magical monte routine ever devised.
I remember (as a young 13 or 14 year old magician) watching the demonstrator at Ripley's Believe it Not magic shop, Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco -- he showed four jumbo cards very cleanly. I could see that three were obviously blank, and one was an Ace of Clubs. The Ace kept changing places with a blank card he had set aside on the table. And then, when I started to think he must somehow have two Aces, he laid the tricks amazing climax on me. He cleanly showed that the four cards consisted of only one blank and THREE aces!
I knew at that moment that I wanted to become a magician who could do tricks that cool!
Only four cards used, nothing added or taken away. Cards cannot be examined, but the handling is so clean, so up-front, that the cards seem above suspicion.
This is an older set (circa late 1980's or early 1990's) -- please read the following notes on the condition
CONDITION NOTES: previously owned but in excellent condition. Appears unused, though there is a VERY SMALL "dent" on the Ace card near the index pip -- you will not notice it, except now I told you. (In the photo it is near the edge under the upper index pip on the right-hand Ace, but you really can't see it. That's how small it is!) ALSO, the blank card is slightly different shade from the background on the Ace cards -- in natural sunlight you can see it, but inside under artificial lighting, you cannot see the difference.
