The performer hands a small pay envelope to someone to hold, commenting that, "inside the envelope is a prediction of the exact card you will select."
A card is then selected from the pack and the magician removes a sheet of clear acetate from the envelope. But printed on the acetate is not one, but instead NINE different cards. Admitting that he didn't commit to his prediction quite as much as he might have, he asks the spectator if she sees the card she is thinking of among the nine cards printed on the acetate. She says, "Yes."
Then while the spectator holds the clear sheet between the palms of her own hands, the image of her card disappears. And when the pack is examined, her selected card has also disappeared!
This powerful two-climax effect is precisely the kind of magic and mentalism combination that HITS PEOPLE HARD on many levels!
You can have the selected card completely disappear OR even have just the face of the card vanish, leaving the card BLANK! It's your choice (depending upon your magic style) and everything you need is included with the DVD!
This very fresh combination of magic and mentalism is also beautifully self-contained. Everything fits inside a single small envelope! It's a classic example of 'packing flat and playing BIG!'
The Disappearance rocks when performed 1-on-1, but between selecting the card, holding the cards, and holding the clear sheet you can also get SEVERAL people directly involved in THE IMPOSSIBLE EVENT!
Along with many different handlings you will also learn devious full deck and small packet card forces, switches and false counts!
As an ADDED BONUS Jay also teaches the Allerton Switch and the Topper Palm (two of his favorite 'underground sleights') in rare detail.
