Qty: 1   

Vintage item from 1991, put out by FISM champ and all-around magical genius, John Cornelius.   I first thought this would only play for magicians, because of how it makes fun of the old 21-card trick, but when I tried it out on lay people, I discovered that they really liked the idea of a card trick using photographs of a card deck!  And many of them were familiar with the 21 card trick also.


Here's what happens:   the magi shows three laminated photographs.   the first shows a haphazard mess of cards that have apparently spilled on the floor.  Some face up, some facedown.   The spectator thinks of one of the faceup cards.   Then the next photo shows three rows of seven cards, laid out like the old 21 card trick.  The spectator is asked to see if there is a card of the same value as her card in the first, second and/or third row.   After this, the third picture is shown, and one fo the 21 cards has turned facedown.  The spectator no longer sees her thought-of card.  the magi names the facedown card, and the spectator confirms that it is the same card she thought of.


There are some other routines, including predictions, etc.  but the basic thought divination routine is best in my opinion.


Props are from 1991, so almost 25 years old now.  But they are in excellent shape, and appear unused and as new.   Original instructions and extra printed items also included.
