Still one of my favorite packet effects to come out of the 1970's packet trick big bang, fueled by the genius of Goldstein, Trost and Emerson & West (the Lennon & McCartney of packet tricks!) This one was created by Magic Ronnay (from Austria), and produced by E&W as part of their prolific packet line.
Magi shows four faceup jokers and four facedown jokers. A facedown joker is added to the faceup jokers, and they all turn facedown. A faceup is added to the facedowns, and they turn faceup. This is repeated a few times. Finally, the backs of the eight cards, which were blue throughout the routine, suddenly change to all different colors. Oh yeah, and a few of the jokers turn into Aces!
Very startling, and not hard to do if you know the basic packet trick sleights and counts.
Vintage item from late 1970's -- Very hard to find this classic effect in it's original E&W format -- with original cards, wallet, original instructions, and Q-card (handy bullet point instructions on a card about the size of a business card). This one is complete and in ALMOST mint condition. (There is some pink ink transfer onto the Q card, and the original generic vinyl outer sleeve is missing.). Otherwise, everything appears to be unused and in like new condition.
