Charge it! Credit Card cards
I'm a sucker for charismatic designs on specially-printed cards, and so when I saw the backs of this packet effect, with four different credit cards, I knew audiences would have fun with it. The routine is pretty simple, with each suit of a four-of-a-kind turning facedown as the faceup cards are counted. With each count, a different suit has turned facedown. During this sequence, the backs of the cards are all seen to be red-backed. Finally, the four cards are shown to have four different back designs -- the credit cards. I like to use the silly patter line about how hard the sleight of hand is, that I want to get credit for having great skill. Then I show the credit cards. The cards are a bit different than usual feel of US Playing Card stock, and so they take a bit of getting used to, or maybe would benefit from some fanning powder. but after handling the cards in practice for a while, you will have no problem with this easy, effective routine.
