Although this trick was released by Paul Diamond back in the late 1970's or early 1980's, this one has been hiding away, unused for 3+ decades. It is in perfect, like new, condition, and complete with original instructions.
The effect is a simplified version of Pavel's effect called Circulation -- I say simplified, because the gimmick is a bit less "engineered", though the basic method is the same. (A method for which both tricks owe a debt to Bro. John Hamman, who used a similarly tricky method in one of his effects). Innovative methods often get re-interpreted again and again, and this is one of those. You will think it would not work, but it does! (Incidentally, Tenyo made a stage size version of Circulation, because it is such a great trick.)
magi shows a packet of cards, displaying the face card. It has a green triangle on it. This is dealt facedown to the table and the new facecard is shown. It is a red triangle. This is dealt down, and the next card shown. A yellow triangle. Then a blue triangle, and a black triangle. The black triangle is placed into your breast pocket, sticking up slightly. After a moment of magic incantation, the cards on the table are shown to now be squares! The card in the packet is shown to now have all Five triangles on it.
The cards proivided are printed on heavyweight plastic, so they will last forever -- table hoppers will love that they can be wiped clean with a damp cloth!
New-old dealer stock that was never opened, so brand new with instructions, all these years later.
