New Item in Magic Shop Two Card Monte New Item in Magic Shop

An Easy to Do Version of an Old Gambling Trick

Two Card MonteTwo Card Monte is a best-seller in our magic shop as well as through our mail order service!

You show the face and back of two different cards.  Then the face down card is placed behind your back.  The spectator is then asked to guess which one is behind your back.  Now, this should be as simple as watching rubber ducks bobbing around in your bath tub. The spectator instinctively makes the logical choice.  But, they’re wrong. This is repeated several more times and the spectator is never correct … EVER!  The spectator can never guess which card remains.

No sleight of hand is involved. You can perform it almost immediately after opening the package!

Diminishing Cards 

A Classic in Magic  

Diminishing CardsJust imagine the audience watching in amazement as the jumbo cards you are holding become smaller, and smaller, and smaller and smaller. That’s what they’ll see. Over the years, magician’s have entertained audiences with this illusion in night clubs and on stage. Today you’ll recreate that classic in style with this easy to handle card set. 


A stack of jumbo cards are shown to the audience. One card is kept in the hand as the remaining cards are fanned out and waved over the single remaining card, instantly reducing that single card to a much smaller size. This smaller card is fanned to show that a stack of these smaller cards has now appeared in the magicians hands. Again and again the cards become smaller. In a talking act this is an amazing feat of magic. When performed to music, the card manipulation routine is simply beautiful. 


The cards range from the jumbo size measuring in at 4 1/2 inches wide x 7 inches tall to the smallest size measuring 1/2 inch wide x 3/4 inch tall. The Diminishing Cards comes with specially prepared cards and illustrated, easy to follow instructions.

Split Deck

Versatile, Surprising and Always Amazing

Split DeckThe adaptability of the Split Deck is absolutely amazing!  It can be presented as a mental effect, a comedy routine, or even as a reinforcement to team building where two individuals communicate mentally with each other.

A deck of cards is displayed to audience. A smile breaks out across the audience’s faces as they see a deck that has been cut into two parts with an unusual pattern. Each half of the deck is shown to be made up of different cards. Basically, the audience believes this to be simply a deck of 52 different cards that has been cut into an odd shape. While the cards are held face down and spread, a spectator is asked to touch the back of any card, keeping his finger tip on that specific card. The selected card is removed from the deck and held by the spectator against his stomach.

The spectator is asked to look secretly at his card and then concentrate on the suit and value while attempting to transmit his thoughts to a second spectator. At this time, the other half of the deck is shuffled and a second spectator asked to try and read the mind of the first spectator. He is given the opportunity to run his finger back and forth across the backs of the second half of the deck again and again and finally make a selection by stopping his finger on the back of any card. He is given several opportunities to change his mind and select a different card if he chooses. The final selected card is removed from the deck and held against his stomach, just like the first spectator. Finally, when the cards are turned around, they match exactly!

Only occasionally does something this great come along. The fact that the Split Deck has been a fundamental piece of magic performance for so many years, speaks volumes about its ability to entertain and keep audiences on the edge of their seats.

The Split Deck is great for adults as well as youth audiences.  It requires no manipulation or special skills and can be used successfully by magicians, MC’s, professional trainers, business managers, comedians, storytellers, clowns, etc.

You receive a deck of Bicycle Rider Back playing cards and instructions. You can choose from two different sizes, making this effect suitable for the close-up magician as well as the stage entertainer. Many entertainers purchase both sizes to be ready for all types of shows.

Please specify size when ordering.

Eye Exam

by Danny Archer

Easy to Do ~ Great Climax ~ Fully Examinable

Eye ExamIt’s two tricks in one.  You can perform it as a card revelation or a packet trick.

Packet Trick Version:

When you perform it as a packet trick with the theme of a vision test, four cards appearing identical are shown.  The spectator is asked which card was face down, they say, none.  The cards are shown and the Heart is face down.  One at a time the remaining cards turn face down (showing a red back). Then all the cards are face up again.  The audience spectator’s response is usually something like …”What,  No Way!”

To test their color vision, the audience spectator is asked to name the back color of the cards.  He’s just seen they were red.  So he says “Red”.  But, then all the backs are seen to have blue backs.  By now he’s thinking … “I have to see my eye doctor.”

To test their vision retention, one card is pocketed, but four cards are shown. The cards are turned face down, and the spectator is asked to read the top line (an eye chart is printed in bold black letters on the backs of all four cards which are examinable!).  At this point, he’s probably making an immediate appointment with the doc.

Card Revelation Version:

As a card revelation, the spectator selects a card (Force). After several failed tries the magician asks for the name of the selected card and to make sure the card was seen correctly, an eye exam is given.  The trick then finishes as above and the name of the selected card is seen printed on the eye chart!

Eye Exam is very easy to do.  It also includes a page of additional tips and hints called Eye Exam Extras that give hints and tips, and a finish where the cards are examinable (thanks to a Paul Harris suggestion).  It also gives you neat ideas like how to produce a rubber eyeball at the finish. 

Eye Exam comes complete with instructions. You supply your own eyeball if desired.

by Chastain Criswell and JB Magic – DVD 

Tag is crazy clever easy-to-perform magic that will absolutely blow the audience away!

TagA card is freely selected by a spectator, signed and returned into the deck. The magician then removes any different card from the deck. A GENUINE hole is then punched through this different card. Next a paper tag is passed through the hole and tied so the card is fastened to the tag.  Hey, there are NO FAKE TAGS and the hole is REAL! 

Now for the IMPOSSIBLE part.  The spectator takes hold of the tag as the different card is returned to the deck. The spectator never lets go of the tag. The deck is spread and the spectator pulls the tag from the deck. The card FASTENED to the tag is now their SIGNED CARD! This can be given away as a souvenir, the tag is permanently fastened to their card. 

Tag comes complete with tags, gimmick, PLUS a DVD with the complete routine and fully detailed explanations including bonus ideas and tips.

The Monster Mash 

by Paul Hallas 

A Terrific Close-up Effect – Based on McDonald’s Aces! 

Monster MashThe Monster Mash is brought to you by Dracula, Frank N. Stein, a really cool Ghoul and last, but not least, the Ugly Duckling. What a quartet! 

The Monster Mash delivers a delightful, easy-to-perform mystery filled with fun and surprise. 

The magician displays three monsters and a confused duckling. Several blank cards are also shown to represent the cold mist and fog usually found where monsters prowl. The monsters are dealt onto the table with “fog” cards swirling around them. The spectator places his hand on one of the piles. One at a time each monster disappears into the fog of the night, each in his very own unique way. When the last monster has vanished, the spectator checks under his hand to find all the monsters have turned up with Dracula who is throwing a party, a Monster Mash! 

Wait until you see the look on the spectator’s face when the monsters vanish and reappear under his hand. The disappearances are positively spooky. The easy to read instructions are filled with hilarious patter lines that make this a perfect effect all year long. 

You receive specially printed Bicycle back poker size cards (some great art work), a plastic wallet to carry your new effect and complete instructions.

Clone Zone 

by Peter Duffie 

Cloning is perfectly safe. Or is it? 

Clone ZoneAfter years of experimenting in hidden laboratories, research scientists have now made cloning available for the general public. They say cloning provides the desired effect most of the time. Sounds a little risky doesn’t it? Trust me, it’s worth the risk. Besides, the audience always loves someone who lives life on the edge! 

This routine is easy to perform, has no bad angles and resets quickly. It has a great story line and plays strongly in all close-up situations. 

Four playing cards (we call them subjects) are placed on the table. Next, four cards are shown to be completely blank on both sides (these are actually the cloning plates). One by one the special cloning plates take the image of each of the subjects. However, since the cloned image is only temporary, the image fades without a trace. Remember, we talked about some risks earlier. Well, after the cloning plates have lost their cloned images and been shown blank again, the spectators are told that the cloning process has a risk of reversal. At this time the original playing cards are shown to have accidentally been cloned blank. This is when you tell the spectators, “they have just entered the Clone Zone”. 

You receive specially printed Bicycle back poker size cards and complete instructions. The instructions include tips, recommendations and variations for this remarkable effect.

The Foolproof Locator Deck 

from Bruno Canaldi 

This Deck Does All Your Magic For You! 

Foolproof Locator DeckThere are so many applications for the Foolproof Locator Deck that it’s scary. Any card from a regular deck added to the Foolproof Locator Deck makes that card an instant locator card. How? Well let me explain how the deck is configured. The entire deck has been trimmed short and the corners re-rounded, so it looks, handles and appears to be an ordinary deck in every respect. Now, if you take any card from a regular deck and add it to this deck, that card becomes a long card or a locator card. See!

These cards have been die cut to eliminate the jagged or pointed corners, commonly seen on other specially prepared cards. The card on the left is an unprepared card. The one on the right is from the Foolproof Locator Deck. (It’s slightly shorter.) These cards are so well manufactured, when you lay one of the shorted cards on the table, the spectators just can’t tell. They are really that good. In fact, you can hand them the Foolproof Locator Deck and let them handle and shuffle to their heart’s content. Then, you introduce a regular card as the locator card and you’ll blow them away with what you can do! 

Let’s suppose you want to use a short card. Well, any of the cards in the Foolproof Locator Deck can be added to a regular deck and used as short cards. So, now you can begin to appreciate that the Foolproof Locator Deck is a universal deck of cards with many applications. 

You can use the deck in both ways, and use the locator cards as merely locators or they can actually be the force card. If you’re working close-up and need to change the locator/force card to another value or suit to “throw them off”, no problem. You have 52 cards to choose from. 

You are sent the Foolproof Locator Deck along with the booklet of handling techniques and ideas, as well as Bruno’s Family Spaghetti Sauce recipe as a bonus. Yes, you read that right. Hey, Bruno’s just a really cool guy!

Vanishing Card 

A Card Vanishes Instantly Without a Trace! 

Vanishing CardImagine a playing card vanishing right before your eyes. It must be magic. There is simply no other explanation! 

The magician shows three cards to the audience. Two of the cards have the identical value and color. The third card is very different and of the opposite color. The cards are slowly turned face down and dealt carefully onto the table. When the cards are turned over, the two cards of identical value have safely made the journey. However, the odd card has completely vanished, leaving in its place a totally blank card! 

The Vanishing Card is simplicity in card magic. The cards are fairly shown and carefully handled with no false movements. The cards can even be inspected after the dramatic conclusion. Simple and effective, the Vanishing Card begs the question – “Where did it go?”. 

The Vanishing Card is sold complete with Bicycle Rider Back cards and illustrated instructions.

Brainwave Deck

An Effect so Incredible, It Must be REAL Magic! 

Brainwave DeckYears ago, I attended an evening of stage magic by Harry Blackstone, Jr. In the center of the show, Harry began to perform the Ashra Levitation with his lovely wife Gay. When she started to lie down on the couch, a leg from the couch broke off. Luckily, Harry caught Gay before she fell to the floor. She gracefully walked off stage. As the curtains closed, Harry walked to the front of the stage, reach inside his jacket and effectively performed the Brainwave effect to an auditorium of 2000 people. WOW.  

Later that evening, I had the good fortune of spending some time with Harry and asked him how he just happened to have a Brainwave deck with him. He said that you never know when an effect may break or fail, regardless of how careful you are maintaining your props. Consequently, he ALWAYS carried this deck of cards with him just in case! It provided him with an immediate opportunity to keep the show flowing smoothly, while the stagehands and crew reset the stage behind the curtain with the next illusion. Even since that evening, I thought if it’s good enough for Harry Blackstone Jr., it’s good enough for me. Now I always have a Brainwave deck with me when performing. 

The effect is simple, yet stunning with not just one performing climax, but two. A card is merely thought of by a spectator. The magician asks the spectator to imaging turning that card face up in an imaginary deck. The magician displays a card case to the audience and keeps it in full view. The card case never leaves the audience’s sight. The audience member announces the card he thought of moments before. The magician opens the card case, removes the card deck and sorts through the cards. He finds one and only one card that is reversed in the face down deck. It matches exactly the card thought of by the spectator. That is climax number one.  

Then the magician tells the audience that to prove there was no manipulation by him while sorting through the cards, this card is also the only card in the red backed deck, with a blue back. That is climax number two. (Although not shown, the face up card in the photograph is the card with the blue back.) 

You receive a deck of Bicycle Rider Back playing cards and complete instructions. You can choose Brainwave from poker or jumbo sizes, making this effect suitable for the close-up magician as well as the stage entertainer. Many performers purchase both sizes to be ready for all types of shows. 

Please specify size when ordering.

Invisible Deck

Invisible DeckDavid Blaine performed this close-up illusion on the streets of New York City in front of millions of people during his recent nationally televised special. David simply stopped a man walking down a street and placed a closed card box in his hand. He asked him to think of any card and visualize it turning over. When David removed the cards from the box, one card and only one card was reversed in the deck. It was the spectator’s chosen card! The spectator’s reaction was “…Mind-boggling and Amazing”. 

You may perform the Invisible Deck as described above or with a comedy flair as originated by Eddie Field and Don Alan. The Field/Alan version has an imaginary deck shuffled and a card freely selected from that imaginary deck. A real deck is produced and the chosen card is immediately shown face down in the deck. Either method of presentation is easy to do and very effective. The Invisible Deck is sold complete with instructions. 

NOTE: The Invisible Deck is available with an instructional DVD.  The DVD option will improve your performance quality and shorten your learning time substantially.  Please specify when ordering.

52 on One with Surprise Ending 

Fun, Impressive, and Easy to Do!

52-on-One CardYou place an envelope on the table and ask a spectator to select a card from a regular deck. They remember the card and place it back into the deck. You then proudly call attention to the envelope and state that you have predicted in advance the exact card they randomly chose a moment ago. You ask them to name their card out load for the audience. When you open the envelope, a card is displayed with the picture of 52 different cards printed on it. You simply point to their card and wait for the applause. What you will actually receive is a loud groan from the audience. Then you say, “Would you have been more impressed if I had the actual card in the envelope?” They will of course reply “Yes!” Then you turn the 52 on One card over to show their card printed on the back! 

The 52 on One is printed on a poker size card. It’s great for magicians and clowns. Sold with specially printed card and instructions.

Color Monte 

This street con has never been so easy to do, and so entertaining at the same time! 

Color MonteThe story line is delightful. The effect is baffling. Color Monte is self resetting which makes it ideal for strolling situations. The effect is unbelievably simple and uses ungimmicked cards. You are left clean at the end without having to palm or hide anything. In fact, the cards may even be examined if you desire. What more could a close-up entertainer need? 

The delightful story unfolds as the street hustler begins with two red cards and one blue card. The hustler engages the man on the street in a simple game of chance. Every time the single blue card is found by the man on the street, he gets a dollar. But if he is wrong, the hustler gets a dollar. We’re talking easy money here – right? Wrong. All of a sudden, the three cards turn red. Then they all turn blue. The man on the street suggests that there are more than three cards. However, when counted there really are only three single cards. 

At this point the man on the street owes the hustler seven dollars. The hustler suggests a final game of “double or nothing”. A single red card and a single blue card are shown. Remembering he started with two red cards and one blue card, the man on the street guesses the last card must be red. Magically, that last card turns out to be green and he owns the hustler fourteen dollars. 

You receive Bicycle poker size playing cards (specially printed in bright colorful foil), a card wallet to safely store the cards in when not performing and complete instructions including the story line.

No sleights – No Rough & Smooth – An Ultra-Simple Approach to the Brainwave Effect

B'WaveThe beauty of this effect is the seemly fair and unforced choice the spectator in his selection. The method is so simple and subtle, that even magicians learning the effect are impressed with the clean technique. And remember, no sleights or rough & smooth methods are used!

Four blue backed cards are shown. The spectator decides which of the four face down cards to mentally turn over. He then pretends to pluck that card from the packet and place it back into the packet face up. When the cards are spread, the very card that the spectator mentally turned over is found reversed in the deck. To prove this was accomplished by sleight-of-mind rather than sleight-of-hand, the reversed card is now turned over revealing a RED back. As if that wasn’t enough, to prove beyond a shadow of a doubt how seemingly impossible this fete was, the other cards are turned over revealing each with a blank face.

B’WAVE is available in poker size, including includes cards and detailed instructions.

The entertainer discusses the powers of the mind and relates that the mind uses electrical energy to function, just like a computer uses electrical energy to read write and read information from a floppy diskette. The entertainer suggests that if you were to place a diskette in the aura of someone intensely concentrating, it may be possible to record images of their thoughts.

The entertainer places the floppy diskette near the forehead of the first spectator. and then asks the second spectator to place his finger against the diskette and also concentrate.

Svengali DeckThe Svengali Deck, Deluxe is without a doubt one of the most amazing deck of cards ever invented. It will allow you to perform like a professional without learning complicated sleight-of-hand. Check out three of the amazing feats of magic performed with the Svengali Deck . . .

The spectator picks a card, memorizes it, and returns the card to the deck. The deck is cut and shuffled, yet the performer cuts the deck exactly to the chosen card! The audience can’t believe it, so the card is returned to the deck and the deck is shuffled again. Once more, the deck is cut, right to the chosen card.

The spectator chooses a card from what is displayed to be a normal deck of cards. However, when the chosen card is returned to the deck, the entire deck changes to match the card!

The performer mentions that he has a friend that is telepathic. A telephone call is placed to the friend. The spectator chooses a card and the friend on the telephone, many miles away, immediately names the card!

The Svengali Deck Deluxe is the professionals choice. Unlike the less expensive Svengali Decks, the cards has been individually die cut to eliminate that tell-tail pointed corner.

Stripper Deck, Deluxe

Give the Impression of Miraculous Sleight-of-Hand!

Stripper DeckThe Stripper Deck, Deluxe is a powerful magical “tool”. It can allow you to perform tricks like an expert without learning difficult sleight-of-hand. Here are several amazing tricks performed with the Stripper Deck . . .

The spectator selects a card from the deck, remembers it, and returns the card to the deck. The deck is cut, shuffled and placed under the table. You pretend to locate his card, but appear to be having some trouble. You bring the cards out from under the table and ask the spectator to locate his card. He can not find his card, because the card has vanished. You tell him the trick appears to have worked better than you thought, as you bring his card out from under the table.

The deck is shuffled and displayed to be an ordinary deck. You tell the spectators you have sensitive fingers and can cut the deck exactly in half. You attempt to perform this miraculous feat and when counted there are exactly the same number of cards in each half. Then when the spectator turns the cards face up, they find that not only did you cut the deck exactly in half, but one pile is all the red suit cards and the other contains all the black suit cards!

The Stripper Deck Deluxe is the professionals choice. Unlike the less expensive Stripper Decks, each card has been individually die cut to eliminate that tell-tail pointed corner. Any card from this deck can be handled by a spectator who is familiar with playing cards, without fear that they may see that pointed corner. You will feel confident using the Stripped Deck Deluxe.

The Stripper Deck Deluxe is manufactured from genuine Bicycle back, poker size playing cards and comes with instructions.

Ghost Card

A card vanishes right in front of their eyes

Ghost CardI just love effects like this that are up-close and personal for the spectator on stage, yet can be viewed by the theatre audience.

You show six different cards to a spectator and ask him to mentally select one.  While he concentrates on his selection, you count the cards into his open hand one at a time.  Instantly, the card he was thinking of vanishes from the packet of cards.  When you ask him which card he was thinking of, you produce his mentally selected card from your favorite location (your jacket, behind a picture on the wall, your purse, etc.).

The Ghost Card is an easy-to-do, clean and baffling effect.  It does not use rough-and-smooth principle, pocket cards or flaps. You don’t even have to cover the cards, so they never leave the spectator’s sight.  These are jumbo size cards measuring approximately 4 1/4 inches x 6 3/4 inches.  In the photo above, you can compare these jumbo cards to a regular size card.

You receive the Ghost Card cards and complete instructions.
