I think the Gordon version of this plot (Ted Danson/Alex Elmsley's Datebook effect) is the best I have come across.   It does use a deck of cards, and so the admirable goal of doing the effect with no cards whatsoever is not attained.  But the impact on the spectator is very powerful.  

The effect and important points:  spectator is given datebook to hold onto in beginning of the effect, before date or card is selected.  Deck is shuffled and can be borrowed.  Date is named, card is cut to, and the cut to card matches the card written in the datebook on the selected date.  

It is really good.  It incorporates excellent ideas from Bret Harding, Simon Aronson, and others, but puts them into perhaps the most practical and easily performable version of the classic effect.   I also love Cassady's Chronolgue solution to this effect, but for sheer ease and practicality, the Gordon Diary gets my vote for best calendar trick ever.

The calendar is nicely printed, and without any identifying year, so it will never look out-of-date.

Only one of these left... Produced by Chuck Leach at Chazpro, but he stopped making them about 16 years ago.  No longer made and hard-to-find!

Card Watch
A classy men's dress watch that will reveal a selected card. The card appears eerily in the face of the watch as the spectator stares at it...then just as mysteriously it fades away. Marvelous item.

Zodiac Influence
A great piece of pocket mentalism that plays up on people's interest in their star sign and astrology. Four cards with astrological signs randomly printed on them...the spectator sorts them into those with her sign, and those without. The magi names her sign without fail. Based on a binary sort methodology (as Max Maven would say), the cards are also marked, so that the magi never needs to see the side of the cards that have the signs printed on them. This makes it much stronger for laymen, and fools those "in the know". A great little bargain!
