One of the greatest tricks ever invented. The performer shows two red queens face to face. These change to two black queens. The performer says "May be you think I use four cards - well you are right!" So saying he spreads out the cards on the table and sure enough there are FOUR CARDS BUT THEY ARE THE FOUR ACES. The routine can now be carried further if desired by producing the four queens from the pocket and two queens and two aces are placed on the table with the remaining pair being placed in the pocket. But then the cards on the table are shown to be all queens and the cards in the pocket are all aces. (We do not supply the cards for the last part of the routine, but they can be obtained by purchasing a red and a blue bicycle deck from us Price £4.50 plus £1.00 postage.) The cards can be examined at the end of the FULL routine. Personally we prefer to just present the first part of the routine since the finale is an ABSOLUTE KNOCKOUT. Very highly recommended.

WILL THE CARDS MATCH
The performer shows 10 E.S.P. cards and one card which has the message "WILL THE CARDS MATCH?" on it. He explains that first he will have the 10 cards cut time and time again until the audience is satisfied that they are well mixed. Then the cards are split into two heaps. The audience will decide which heap will be used every time. The selected heap is picked up and cards are dealt under each other to spell the word "WILL". The audience may stop the performer whilst he is spelling and make him transfer to the other heap. When the word has been spelled the top cards of each of the two heaps are placed to one side. This is repeated with the words "The Cards Match". The audience control which heap is used and may make the performer transfer to the other heap during the spelling of each word. It therefore seems impossible for the cards to be matched as everything is so fair and above board. But when the pairs of cards are turned over one by one it is seen that EVERY ONE OF THE FIVE PAIRS OF E.S.P. CARDS MATCH EACH OTHER. This is an absolute miracle - every demonstration leads to a sale. NO SLEIGHT OF HAND WHATSOEVER. No moves of any kind. The trick is in fact a cleverly disguised mathematical principle which defies detection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A sheet of perspex in a metallic-plastic frame is handed for examination. A playing card is placed on each side of the perspex. A metal rod or pencil can now be pushed through the card, through the perspex and out through the card on the other side!! To emphasize the penetration a ribbon can be pushed through the hole and pulled back and forth. Finally the ribbon and cards are removed but there is NO HOLE in the perspex!! The frame can again be examined minutely. This is the largest selling penetration of all time. Nicely made apparatus.

A profusely illustrated booklet covering in great detail this famous Broken and Restored Thread routine. The effect is - The performer pulls a long length of cotton from a spool and breaks it into seven or eight pieces. These are rolled into a ball and attached to another short length of thread that was not rolled up like the others. Taking this short piece of thread by both ends the performer pulls them and slowly the thread unravels. COMPLETELY RESTORED!! Anyone may examine the restored thread but they will find nothing. A most effective close-up trick using the sort of things that are in every day use.

Your prediction comes true! With this occult board in your possession, you can become a super mind reader. Although the gimmick in this beautiful piece of apparatus does the work for you, you will have your audience believing you really can predict thoughts. Let a spectator mentally select any object such as a make of car, an animal, a musical instrument - anything. You make a prediction and write it on the upper section of the board and close the lid hiding it from view. The spectator then writes down the object he thought of on the lower section of the board. You continue with your predictions twice more. For instance you ask the spectator to think of a letter of the alphabet or a suit in a deck of cards. You always your prediction before he writes his thoughts. Unbelievably, when the lids are opened all your predictions are correct. This is a pocket size version of the "Mental Epic" made of plastic. (Dimensions: 5" X 4")

MIRACLE FLOATING MATCH
This has to be one of the most incredible close-up items ever produced. Three playing cards are dropped onto the table. A spectator is allowed to choose a card. The card is picked up and held back upwards in one hand. A borrowed matchstick is placed onto the card and the performer makes a mystic pass around the match with one of the other cards. Suddenly the match is seen to be floating about 1" above the card with no visible means of support. The performer now passes another card right underneath the floating match to prove that there is nothing whatsoever supporting the floating match. The match floats back down onto the back of the card and is removed. Now a rubber band is placed on the card and this floats also. Again a card is passed right under the floating rubber band. Next a cigarette is placed on the card and this floats too. MAKE NO MISTAKE THIS IS MIRACLE STUFF DONE UNDER THE NOSES OF THE AUDIENCE. In fact you can hold the card right under a spectator’s nose whilst the match is floating and he will see ABSOLUTELY NOTHING of how the levitation is achieved.

A wooden blade is
removed from the simple wooden stock and freely shown. The blade in replaced in
the stock and a spectator is asked to place a finger through the opening in the
stock, just below the blades edge. Quick as a wink, the solid wooden blade
is plunged downward, through the spectators finger!
There’s a pause as the impossibility sinks in, then the stock is split open and
removed from around the blade. The solid wooden blade is left wrapped around
the spectator’s finger - a startling example of matter through
matter! Impossible penetration never fails to fool the pants off
anyone who has ever seen it. Even today, knowledgeable magicians who have
not seen this system are fooled. Pure, visual magic,
plain and simple.
