APPEAR-8 is a brilliant, visual piece of magic guaranteed to draw shocked reactions from ANY audience. Your deck of cards has an EIGHTBALL printed across its face. In full view of your spectator's you can pluck the printed Eightball OFF the deck and hand out a real, regulation Eightball for inspection!

You are left with a plain Bicycle deck and the real Eightball!

Super simple to perform. Beautifully handcrafted gimmick does the work for you!

Comes with a handcrafted Red Bicycle Deck gimmick, a deck protector (to transport your gimmick around), a real 2" Eightball and downloadable video instructions.

You can use APPEAR-8 as a startling piece of eye-candy, or you can build it into a routine. It's (of course) the perfect way to start any routine that uses an Eightball... or you could force the 8 of Clubs or Eight of Spades and then use Appear-8 as both a prediction AND an eye-popping climax. ("Hey, I KNEW you'd pick a black eight-spot! Really, I did! Check out what I got printed on my deck...")

Here is how Steve Rowe uses Appear-8

  • Stash an 'Invisible Deck' in your Appear-8 case. Ask your spectator to name ANY card. Whatever they respond, you look disappointed and say -
  • "I was HOPING you'd name a black eight spot... you know the Eight Of Clubs or Spades. Then I could show you this really cool deck I have."
  • Pick the Appear-8 case up from the table and show the printed Eight Ball.
  • "Nevermind, I can fix this. First, let's get rid of this..."
  • Pluck the Eight Ball right off the front of your card box and drop it in their hand (or on the table). Then remove the invisible deck from the case and proceed to show them the card they named!
Appear-8 - shocking, visual magic at its best!

Easy, Quick, Visual Trick Report this review

I got this last week. I freaking love it. It is easy to perform. You have to mindful of the way you hold it...esp during close up. I'm adding it to my walk around and stage show. Like ASAP. I've already done it a dozen times. They don't see it coming and it is just fast, fun and easy. I already have a collection of funny productions in my stage show and this eight ball fits right in. I am so happy to add this and so dang happy for the visual punch moment. My nephew is coming this weekend and it is going to fry him.

Reactions for those I've done it for so far...eye pops...lots of eye pops and laughter. They grab the ball from me almost every time. Can't wait to perform it on the stage!



I had one girl grab the box and look at it and see nothing. I took it back without much care and handed her the eight ball. She was like WTF! I am not saying I want them to grab the deck every time...but it did happen and I didn't make a big deal of it.

I love this !!!!!

Good Visual Stuff Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 10th, 2017
It is a good visual Trick. I don't do it like Mr. Rowe his
version where he puts down on table is Great !! It does require good Audience management. If you do it as a Finish it is impressive. I do table Hopping and come from the same thinking as the Late Derek Dingle school of thought ...I don't like to put things down on a table. Derek was a trade show magician who spoke of working without putting stuff down on table at a booth so everybody could see him.
I don't like to invade the patrons space. I do have TWO and keep it in my close up case. For me it is a once or twice a night" opener" it is something people are not expecting. I open w/ "Do you know what my favorite sport is ? " and I Point to the card case and bam ! It gets a great response.

Doesnt work.. Report this review

I ordered the appearing 8 ft. straw but they sent me this by accident ,bit of a hassle to send it back so i kept it. I really like the idea but the gimmick itself doesnt work properly . I dont know how else to say it without exposing anything , i had to seriously tweek the thing to make it work and only because i happen to know the even better method (which i learned here at penguin) for the mechanics of the gimmick . I have a feeling alot of people will have a hard time with this.
