Every so often a trick comes along that leaves nothing left to the performer other than how he or
she may wish to present it, and Legacy is just that trick! For all practical purposes it is self
working and no sleights of any kind are needed....it is that EASY and clean to perform. The cards
have a nice aged look, and the photo is also the type of photograph that looks as though it were
taken many years ago. Of course it also includes a special wallet that is brown and looks as though
it may be old, but is not aged in any way. However, there really is no need for the wallet to have a
very aged look as it will not really come into play in the spectators mind and is somewhat
secondary, albeit a very integral part as to the workings of this great effect. Its very easy to
see that The Underground Collective went to a lot of pains to make this effect look as perfect as
It includes printed instructions instead of a DVD, but in all honesty there
really is no need whatsoever for a DVD with this particular effect. As a matter of fact, in my
opinion, its quite refreshing for a change to have printed instructions rather than a DVD for a
trick, and they are very detailed, easy to understand, and printed on heavy stock paper.
Unfortunately, the description of the effect that is given for Legacy does not really do it
justice. Yes, you can indeed handle it in such a way as described, but it is open to a plethora of
other possibilities and scenarios. Make no mistake about it, the effect described is great and is
indeed a killer, but you are by no means restricted to a story line about poker, or for that matter,
the man in the picture being a relative of yours. The instructions include several presentations for
this effect, but by no means the only way you can present this. Also included is something special
if you wish to have the possible ending be more of a magic effect rather than that of something
based as a mentalist effect. Actually, its all up to you as to how you may wish to handle it. No
matter how you wish to present it the ending can vary from performance to performance, but no matter
how it may end it is a guaranteed sure fire killer. Yes, I realize that there is no demo for it, but
you can see one variation of it being performed on You Tube. Please keep in mind that this
particular demo is only ONE of the possible ways it can be presented and only ONE of the possible
endings. As time goes on there are sure to be more people performing this on You Tube, and more
likely than not, being performed poorly although its pretty difficult to screw this effect up other
than rushing it, and or one not using their imagination as to the story. This packs small and one of
those tricks that youll always want to carry with you.
Bottom line....what more can one
ask for from such a strong effect that requires no skill whatsoever, and then lets you totally free
to then concentrate on how you may wish to present it! A MUST buy, and youll NOT be disappointed.

That's very clever idea for the 5 choices. But Since the back of the photos written in English, I
had to reproduce the photos and write back in Turkish. Maybe it is wise to left backs emty for the
