This is the most recent version of Tony Curtis' very funny effect, put out by Hampton Ridge and distributed by Royal Magic. The cards are not as vibrantly printed as the original Emerson and West issue of the effect, but the E&W version is pretty difficult to find now. The effect (for those who do not know it yet) is this:
A small packet of glamour photos is shown, featuring good looking women in bikinis. The cards are mixed and then given to a male spectator, facedown, so he can randomly choose his mystery date. After he eliminates all but one card, using a very cute "she loves me, she loves me not" counting process, he finds that his chosen card is not a hot girl, but an old wrinkled crone!
These cards are 2x3 inch laminated card stock. They do not have the heavy lamination that the original E&W sets have, but they are very durable nonetheless. Not a routine for every audience, but this is a good one to have in your table hopping arsenal for when you come up on a table full of rowdy young men.
Brand new, with instructions and vinyl carrying wallet.
