An amazing deck of cards that allows you to do a miracle – yet is EASY TO DO. This effect was Dai Vernon's take on an idea by Joe Berg and R.W Hull.
You put a deck of cards on the table, explaining that you have made a prediction before you left your home. You ask the spectator to name any card. You carefully remove the deck and show one face up card in the deck, and it matches the card freely named by the spectator. To prove that you did not somehow reverse the card (using clever sleight of hand) after hearing its name, you let the spectator pull out the faceup card and look at its back. It is a different color from the rest of the deck.
No forcing – it’s an absolutely free choice. The gimmicked deck does 99% of the work.
After a little practice with this deck, you can blow spectators' minds with an ultra-clean mental miracle.
This is a nicely made deck from Royal Magic -- it is bridge size, and less expensive than the poker sized versions (typically made with Bicycle decks). This one has the "generic" Royal cards' back design. For this amazing effect, I have never had any lay person comment that I was using a bridge size deck, and I actually find the bridge deck a bit easier to handle for this effect. So save a few bucks, and you can buy two, so you'll have a spare! :-)
New and unused, with instructions. Deck comes in a red Royal card case.
