FREE SHIPPING TO UNITED STATES. This product qualifies for PENGUIN FLAT-PACK (World-wide free shipping)
Out of stock.
The performer removes a paperclipped and folded card from his pocket and sets it in full view of the audience. A card is then freely selected, signed and returned to the deck. And yet, when the performer unclips the folded card and slowly unfolds it...it is found to be the signed card! This is a truly mind-blowing impossibility.
What You Get
Now, for the very first time, Jay's astonishing "card in paperclip" is fully explained, along with his other killer effects, "Bank Night," Mental Photography," "Card in Egg," and "Torn and Restored Business Card" routines, presentational suggestions, psychological fine points and the all-important "touches" only gained from years of performing experience are all fully covered. This unique video also includes Jay's tips on using the switch with bills, matchbooks, nail writers, cocktail napkins and much more!

Sankey should hire someone to do his videos Report this review

The explanation is good but Jay Sankey's side comments are just plain weird. He appears to just babble and any strange thing that comes into his mind comes out of his mouth regardless of whether it is appropriate or not. I don't believe I will ever buy another of his products unless I can see that the video is performed by someone else.

Absolutely phenomenal effect. Jay has never failed to disappoint, but this is my absolute favorite of his. A fair warning, pick up about 5 decks of cards to practice with, you will go through them before you're ready to perform. But it's a very easy trick to do, and gets amazing reactions. I never leave home without a deck of cards and a paperclip now.

I've never been a fan of card magic, but I knew I had to put something in my routine, so I ordered this trick. I didn't put another thought in it, and when it arrived at my door I had completely forgotten about it. It sat on my counter for 2 days, then finally I figured "what the hell" and put it in the dvd player. The shock I felt when I realized how powerful this trick was was unreal. This can be performed by any deck of cards on a moments notice, the sleight of hand is genius and can be performed with people at any angle, and with practice you could master this trick in two hours and 4-5 decks. Huge respect and compliments to Jay, I never leave my house without a deck of cards and a paperclip in my pocket now.

I love to smile and laugh as most of us do. I was able to do lots of both watching Jay Sankey.
This isn't brand new but it holds it's own with the very best of the very best illusions being released today.
Brilliant minds sometimes go in several directions at once.
Mr. Sankey does that but always manages to bring everything together to make brilliant memorable points as he walks you slowy and carefully step by step through his illustion so nothing will be hard to grasp.
I'm still a beginner and the effect takes practice. For me, at least 4 hours to feel comfortable showing it, but it is oh so worth it!
I was feeling a bit down last night so I popped in Mr. Sankey and was laughing out loud again...WHILE LEARNING
If you aren't such a big fan of silly humor, don't let that stop you from learning a genius method from a genius.
1. The effect is easy to understand thanks to the teacher. medium difficulty (for a beginner) to achieve,
2 I would rate it 9.2 on the Awesomeness scale of 10 as far as impact on your audience.
3. AND, this is an effect that can be done anytime anywhere at a moments notice with a 2 second reset.
4. You won't have to repurchase anything! You just will need an ordinary everyday paperclip and some cards.
I am so happy with this purchase. :)
I was wrong Report this review

My first impression of the basic technique and the way it was used in routines, was that it was "too magical". In other words, you didn't leave room for the spectator to come to any other conclusion, other than the fact you must've pulled off a very deceptive switch.
So my fear was that instead of getting a "How did you do that?" reaction, I'd get a "When did you switch it?" reaction. As it turns out, I was completely wrong. Maybe because the finish is so disorienting, the spectator simply can't process it right away. Maybe the next day they're able to deconstruct it, but by then, I'm long gone.
So yes, I'd recommend this very highly. Aside from the great reactions, it's really very easy to do. And whether you're laughing with him or at him, Jay's tutoring is always fun to watch.
Sankey at His Best Report this review

This is one of my favorite Jay Sankey effects out there. The only preparation you need is to fold a card and put a paperclip on it. The rest is impromptu. You can let the spectator choose any card they want. They can even name a card and take it. There is no force that you need. The card is then even signed. There is a bit of slight of hand involved but nothing too difficult. For a great trick that is good to do under all circumstances pick this up.

Hi. This is your official PenguinMagic reviewer, B_Magic.
Now THIS is worth a purchase! BUY IT RIGHT NOW! You can't seriously still be reading this without having it added to your cart! ADD IT!
Jay Sankey is a genius. Now I will warn you, he can be a little bit of a character sometimes, which for me can get annoying. When I'm in magic mode, I get tired of all the DVDs with pointless babble and overtalk right in the middle of learning the trick, which does happen here.
However this is a great trick and you will be stunning audiences for a long time with this one, as long as you put the proper work into its presentation. This effect is not very difficult at all to do, which is why extra work must be put into the presentation to make it killer.
You gotta get this one.
The best card trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
If i were in a life or death situation and someone said to perform a trick i would do this. It had a great plot with an unbeleivable finish. I have performed this trick hundreds of times and the best part is you can hide the card wherever you want beforhand.

I really cannot recommend this DVD enough. This DVD not only teaches a post-modern classic I perform anywhere and everywhere, but it blows people away! The moves used in the trick are explained over and over so you do not have to rewind. Jay is also quite funny while teaching this stuff. I learned this trick in two decks and thirty minutes after watching this DVD because of how well it is taught. I have been introduced to the principles before, but when he taught them like this it clicked! This is my favourite trick now! The move is always going to fool people and it comes with a host of other uses on the DVD! Anyone could take the principle and apply it to at least a dozen different tricks right of the bat! That wasn't only the best part! An equally funny and well taught part comes at the end, with the five bonus routines. Mating Season, taught on this is now a definite part of my working repitore, hitting hard and so simple! It also helped me to create many routines. I cannot stress this enough, so help me, Penguinmagic, and Jay Sankey by putting this in your cart now!
Worth suffering through the DVD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 13th, 2007
Sitting through Jay Sankey's instructional footage is one of the most agonizing experiences of my life. Not only does his cameraman swing around and zoom in and out for no apparent reason, but Jay's juvenile attempts at humor (mostly pointless references to nudity and underwear) take about as much time as the actual instruction. The whole thing could have been half as long. If you're 11 years old, you may find him hilarious. Just my honest personal reaction.
Now, with that said, please note how many stars I gave it. The only reason I gave it 5 stars is because I couldn't give it 10! This is far-and-away THE BEST card trick I've ever encountered. Jay Sankey is not the first genius to be somewhat eccentric. You can choose to concentrate on how annoying he is, or you can learn from him.
Be prepared for a different kind of reaction to this one! People will very often not clap or cheer; they won't say "wow" or "what the bleep"; They just sit there in silence as their brain unravels!
Whenever you do Paperclipped, use it as your closer. DON'T DO ANOTHER EFFECT AFTER THIS ONE. Finish the trick and don't say anything else. Just spread the cards for them to examine and walk away.
The DVD would be worth the 30 bucks if this were the only trick on it! But you get several more, along with some other good hints and tips on your magic performance. So just relax and listen to the genius.
