One thing is clear. Mark Calabrese performs this trick A LOT. And why wouldn't he, with those reactions. A FREELY selected, SIGNED card ends up inside the sharpie marker they signed it with. Surreal, and impossible, and people FREAK OUT.

It's called "Card in Sharpie" and it's a worker. Perfect for working pros, table hoppers or just casual performers who want to freak out their friends.

It is instantly reset and ready to go again for your next audience so there's no fiddly setup time.

What you get is a bullet-proof routine that Mark has been perfecting in his act, and an extremely detailed instructional video that you'll only get from a pro who's clearly been working a trick daily.

This is a really good video - Mark goes through each component of the trick in detail, and it's all easy to follow. He demonstrates each of the moves as well as referencing where they can be learned elsewhere, and has alternative handlings for newer magicians to get started with.

Great teaching! Experienced magicians will have fun with it, but thanks to the great teaching by Mark it is also good for beginners.

Excellent, however... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 15th, 2018
This is a beautiful routine with a very surprising finish. The routine is move intensive and I would not suggest this to a beginning magi. Even though none of the separate components are all that difficult to perform, a good working knowledge of basic palming technique and card control will serve you well. You will learn a lot after studying Mark's use of misdirection here. This is an excellent purchase for anyone willing to put in some quality practice time....

C.I.S. - Review Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 20th, 2018
I have been looking for something like this for a while. I've been considering CIM (Card in Marker) and Bliss for a while and discussing it with other magicians I know. I attended a lecture by Mike Kaminskas who has yet another unique method (which was amazing), and all of them are different methods. After reviewing all of them, I think I like this one the best so far (IMHO). While they all have merit, this one fit my set better. I'm happy with the routine, and it flows well and was well thought out. It will easily fit into any set.

Card in Sharpie (C.I.S.) by Mark Calabrese Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 15th, 2019
This is another winner from Mark!
It's not one for the beginner or hobbyist, as you must have experience "handling" your audience, awareness of angles, and timing.This being said, you must practice loading something, as well as switching something out, so timing, angles, patter, and misdirection is CRUCIAL!
As a working pro, I've already spent some time with the loading, and I'm now confident that my 40 years of experience with patter, timing, and misdirection will absolutely enable me to pull this off; I'm not terribly worried about that all-important switch either, as the effect is built around a natural misdirection at that point! Furthermore, I'll make it "mine", in other words, I'll have it suit my presentation-style. It's a keeper (as far as I'm concerned) and what we call a "worker", (a staple in all of my close-up shows)but it will have to pass first my wife's all-important critical "eye" and her almost-cruel honesty! I'll keep you posted, but I definitely fooled her with Mark's "Red Medicine", so that's also a keeper in my close-up shows!
I recommend this effect for intermediate and certainly EXPERIENCED magicians, as the previously-mentioned "work" is not for the faint-of-heart.

Awesomeness Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 22nd, 2018
It’s a very ingenious method, when you see it it’s like I could’ve thought it myself but I’m not as I clever as Mark Calabrese the only reason it’s not 5 stars it’s that there’s always room for improvement

Really great effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 26th, 2018
Mark goes into detail on two different handlings for this effect, and each are really strong. If you like performing sleight of hand and love that feeling of misdirection, this is just a really fun effect. Highly recommended, I will be doing this daily.
