More brilliant card magic Ian McCoy. Notice I said magic – not card tricks. The difference in my view is that while tricks can be puzzling and clever and intriguing – this is very different from when a series of events with the pasteboards leave people gasping in wonderment.
In Jack Attack Aces - the magician does a magical piece with the 4 aces. He then makes the ace with the same suit as a chosen card turn face up. Next he takes that ace and makes it disappear into the deck. Spreading the deck – the 4 aces are seen to be face up in the middle with the chosen card (sayJack of clubs) face down between them. Incredibly the 3 “aces” on the table are now the other Jacks.
In Birthday Aces a freely chosen card ends up in a position in the deck that corresponds to the spectators’ birthday. The spectator also manages to find three aces by randomly dealing and cutting. To finish the chosen card changes to the fourth ace.
Between your Palms is a masterpiece whereby a card is placed sight unseen on the palm of a spectator – BEFORE the trick begins. Two cards are chosen and one is thought of. The two chosen cards are found. The Thought of card ends up being the card that was originally placed in the spectators’ palm. Then there is Mental Wild Card. A card is placed face down on the table. A spectator is asked to name a card. The card on the table is the very card the spectator names.
This is just three of seven fantastic pieces of card magic -professional material of a first class nature The routines offered here are – as in all my publications – very strong. They are for experienced magicians. They are mostly Mr McCoy's own invention. Any beginner magicians may have a go at learning these routines as my video instruction will be a great help. All my publications have video links to performance and explanation. Material like this would be selling at very high prices. So here is I believe the best deal in magic. This is top draw material from a man who has been practicing the arts of magic and mentalism for over forty years, twenty five of them as a professional on both sides of the Atlantic.
