This one is very similar in effect to Martin Lewis' great Sidewalk Shuffle, though the method (while also similar) is different, using three Ten of Spade cards and one Queen of Hearts.   The stronger contrast between the black tens and the red Queen makes the effect stronger than with the blanks and Ace in the Lewis effect;  but this one requires a bit more care in performing to avoid flashing anything.   That said, it is not particularly difficult to do after a bit of practice.

This trick was named "Enchanted Queens" by the maker (Sam Dalal's Magic factory), but I prefer to call it Sidewalk Queens Monte, as an homage to Lewis' great effect (and so that I remember that it is a a nice variation of that one!)    It has not been available for over 20 years, but I unearthed a few in some ex-dealer inventory, so here's your chance to get one.  

EFFECT:  You show three tens and a queen, (jumbo 5x7 inch cards), and place a ten aside. The queen is mixed into the other two cards, and vanishes to appear on the table (where the extra ten was supposed to be).  Repeat this, and for the finish, the cards change to three queens and one ten.   Very clean displays front and back make this particularly mysterious.

Although these sets have never been previously owned -- from "new-old" dealer inventory -- they are over two decades old, and the cards show some browning discoloration.  This is even overall, so does not look "bad", just makes the cards appear "old" (which they are, I guess!)   The cards are plastic coated cards, which helps with durability, but means you need to practice a bit more to get the handling down, to do doubles and Elmsley counts with this stock if you are used to "regular" card stock.  But they handle well, especially considering their age.

NOTE:  the poker size Bicycle deck shown in the photo is not included, nor is it needed for the trick.  It is only shown so you quickly can see that these are Jumbo cards.

New-old inventory, never used, with original instructions.
