aka Max Maven has GREAT card mentalism. The Mockingbird killed me when I saw it the first time, the second time, and the third time. Great videos he has.

Maven is the Man.

Other sources I'd recommend would be Lesley's Paramiracles, Annemann's The Jinx, and Osterlind's Breakthrough Card System.

Best of luck,
Neil

It's in stock. :) Ordered and shipped today. :) Ahhhhhhhhh.

I was so close to springing the $205 ($155USD) for it at my local. $57/piece. 10% discount if you buy the whole set. :evil:

Oh my god, the Osterlind Breakthrough card system is the absolute BEST! I've just watched his DVDs this weekend, and I have to say this is one of the best things I have ever seen. Amazing. Full reviews coming soon

Actually, I told this whole story in the into to the new book "Breakthrough Card System - 20th anniversary" and in "Magic Magazine."

Briefly, I was working in my father's tool and die shop and trying desperately to figure out the stack. I had worked for months. The deck I was using was covered with grease. I had given up for a few days and was standing at a Bridgeport milling machine. The final thought for the suit values hit me as I stood there and I grabbed the deck and tried it. When I got to the final card, with no repeats or having the system play out, and saw that the final card led back to the first, I was elated and mortified that I had done something wrong. I started over at the beginning and worked out every card again. When it came out right the second time, I felt like I just got my Daisy Red Ryder on Christmas morning!!! I immediately grabbed the deck and started having people pull out cards and other effects I already knew using stacked decks. I was flooring them all and constantly spreading the deck to show they "were all mixed up!" It was a great day in "greasedom"!

So that's how it was. I don't know if I have ever felt as accomplished as that day.

Richard
