Card in the Wallet - The fairest looking version of this timeless classic - ever! A signed card travels into the confines of the performer's wallet, which is retrieved from the pocket with absolutely empty hands.
Laser Card - A high-tech card discovery! A laser pointer burns a hole in a selected card even though it's in the middle of a cased pack.
Coin Through Sheer Silk - Simple and elegant. A large coin visibly penetrates the center of a sheer scarf.
Woo-Doo Card - A selected card is bent by a spectator and one at a time, its three mates in the deck are found bent as if in sympathy.
Trapdoor Card in Glass - A signed card, secured in a rubber-banded case, escapes in a most mysterious fashion.
Ring on the Rose - A borrowed finger ring is vanished in a flash of fire and reappears in another flash on the stem of a rose.
Bang Card - A card revelation is combined with a classic comedy gag to produce a solid piece of magical entertainment.
Ace on the Edge - The image of a selected card appears magically inscribed on the edges of a beveled deck.
Credit Card in the Wallet - A borrowed credit card, shredded to pieces, is found restored in a zippered compartment in the performer's wallet.
Likes Attract - It begins as a silly experiment as a jumbo card is selected from a normal sized deck. Things get serious, however, as the jumbo card is freely inserted back into the deck and ends up next to its match.
Quickest Color-Changing Card - After a series of serious and not-so-serious shuffles, the indifferent face card changes into the spectator's selection instantaneously.
Vanishing Banknote - A borrowed bill visibly disappears at the performer's fingertips.
Vanishing Queen - A spectator selects a Queen and the performer causes it to vanish. The card is still there - just the Queen disappears and ends up in the performer's pocket.
