This is really cool. It reminded me of a routine from Richard's Almanac back in the early 1980's called Holy P.O.D. I've always been a sucker for a card trick where the card has a hole cut through it. :-)
You show a red backed card with hole in it. Set it on the table. Have a card selected and signed from the blue deck, and then lost in the deck. Really lost, no control needed. Put the port hole card face up on the blue deck, and have the spectator place an Avery sticker on the top blue backed card, pressing it on through the magical port hole in the red card. When you are ready, the sticker visibly vanishes, and the port hole card is shown on both sides and tabled. Hand the deck to the spectator and have her deal through the cards -- about about halfway down in the deck is a card with the Avery sticker on its back -- it is her signed selection.
It is very magical looking -- the sticker vanishes, without any cover. Takes some practice to "get the knack" but the clever gimmicked port hole card does most of the work. After you get the right feel for it, it is easy to do.
There are a few other routines explained on the DVD, but I think the one where the sticker vanishes and finds the selected signed card is the one you will do most.
Brand new with DVD instructions. Red back Bicycle Port Hole card, for use with your blue backed regular deck.
