Hand out a two foot ribbon for examination.

Invite your spectators to pull on it and to verify that the ribbon is absolutely ordinary.

Now show a deck of cards with a hole through the upper left corner. 52 cards, 52 holes.

Explain to your spectators that they will soon pass the ribbon through the 52 cards and will tie a knot so as to completely imprison the entire deck.

Have a spectator select a card and show it to the others.

The card is shuffled back into the deck.

As mentioned at the beginning of the trick, the spectator now passes the ribbon through the deck and ties a tight knot - even a double knot, if he wishes.

It is now totally impossible to change the order of the cards - a fact your spectators will willingly acknowledge.

Show everything from all sides to the spectators and hold the deck face up in front of them.

The deck is still there? The knot is securely tied? The chosen card is still in the deck?

During these three questions pass your hand rapidly in front of the deck and believe it or not, the spectator's card is now the face card of the deck.

Your spectators can immediate examine the whole setup!!

How is this possible?

How can the chosen card escape from the center and arrive at the face of the deck while the ribbon secures the cards?

The most scrupulous examination will reveal nothing - the mystery will only deepen.

Imagine the following...

As soon as the spectator has finished his examination of the deck, you pass your hand once again over the spectator's card.

And once again, the impossible happens.

The spectator's card is now free! Yes, the spectator's card is the only card to have escaped the knotted ribbon.

Give the card for examination. There's nothing to see - the hole remains intact.

A passage of solid through solid - an unfathomable mystery!

Ok, I didn't get this one from Penguin, don't think it was available here yet. It's as good as it looks in the demo, however, it's not as examinable as implied when the ad copy says "The most scrupulous examination will reveal nothing - the mystery will only deepen." Well... that examination CAN'T take place in the spectator's hands, or it will definitely reveal something. Maybe somebody should edit that out of the description?

I have to say this effect is one of my favorite card tricks. everything about it is great. the gimmick is clever. the routine is great. the illusion is great. it really blows their minds when they see their card jump in front of the deck with a wave of the hand even though the deck was tied down with a ribbon. get this effect you'll love it and your audience will love it.

This is seriously the perfect ambitious card...Card signed and lost, the deck is bound and unable to be manipulated, hands completely clean with a wave the top card visually changes into a signed card! Its pure genius... anyone who has complaints with this must have no ability with cards whatsoever... There is almost no sleight of hand involved to create a miracle, and everything is examinable. To clean up would be no problem and then you are 100% examinable... Either way.. this is the perfect ambitious card.
