A packet card trick, from the prolific mind of Ian Adair.
Effect : The Magician shows 5 cards with pictures of five popular grocery items - BREAD, BEANS, BUTTER, SOAP POWDER AND SUGAR.
On the reverse of the cards, there is a barcode, but all these barcodes are identical.
The cards are mixed, and a spectator asked to pick any card, while the magician looks away. There is no force of any type. Yet the performer is immediately able to identify the selected card.
This can be repeated as often as you like, and there is no secret marking on the cards. The spectators can examine the cards as much as they wish.
A very simple effect when you "know how", but one that is quite baffling to the uninitiated spectator or magician.
We supply the five cards with Ian's own instructions, at a very affordable price.
