..for anyone who is looking for a modern no-palm card to wallet that does not require a lot of fiddling around...I suggest this would prove to be a practical and worthwhile version to own **** - Mark Leveridge, Magicseen
The transfer of the card to the wallet, in one quick and easy motion, is undetectable...the method makes the trick just about perfect.- Matthew Field, The Magic Circular
We are extremely proud of this new principle for Signed Card to Hip Wallet, as it is A NEW WAY TO LOAD A CARD INTO THE INNER POCKET OF A WALLET WITHOUT ANY KIND OF PALMING!
As far as the audience is concerned - magicians and laymen alike - the deck itself never touches the wallet, because the full deck with the signed card is in the closed card case all the time!
The spectator picks any card from any deck, signs it and puts it back. YOU IMMEDIATELY PLACE THE FULL DECK – WITH THE CHOSEN CARD – INTO THE CARD CASE.
You then introduce a modern hip wallet (you could use it as your regular wallet) to the audience and take out a $20-bill or any other bill with the explanation that the spectator may keep the money if the trick fails! In saying that, you stress the fact that the signed card is now somewhere in the deck inside the locked card case.
BUT WHEN YOU PUT THE $20-BILL ON THE TABLE IN FRONT OF THE SPECTATOR THE CARD IS ALREADY IN THE WALLET!!!
Thanks to the special gimmick the dirty work is done the very same moment you touch the card case – not the deck itself – to the wallet for a few seconds only!
It is so clean and easy to do. Perform it surrounded. No magnets, threads or complicated mechanics. No electronics. Again: this is an ENTIRELY NEW PRINCIPLE (it took El Duco one year of trial and error to develop it).
You will play around with it as your favorite toy when you receive it, and when you INVISIBLY load the card from somewhere in the card case into the wallet for the first time, you will probably scream of joy!
El Duco’s Signed Card to Hip Wallet is hand made by a Swedish craftsman from finest calf leather. The size of the wallet is 125 x 90 mm (5 x 3,5 inches). Comes complete with wallet, deck and DVD instructions.
BONUS!!!!! From 2009 Gay Ljungberg's Cut & Restored Credit Card Routine is included, in which a spectators credit card is placed into a signed envelope, cut in two and NOT restored. When the performer suggests that the spectator mend the card with cellotape it is discovered that the destroyed card is the performers own card. The spectators credit card is, of course, found unharmed inside the wallet.
