Being one of very few female magicians, close up is my specialty, and I love this trick! It always gets a laugh and the folks think I have no idea what their card is until....suddenly there it is bigger than life. I recommend this trick to everyone from beginners to experts!

Purposely making a trick fail is the funnest thing you can do only to then pop this little bad boy out and show them you have insurance. Gets good laughs!

I started performing this trick in my teens (over 30 years ago). It was a staple for years because it packs light, is easy to do, and plays big. I literally wore several out. I was pleasantly surprised to see this gem still for sale here at Penguin. It is exactly how I remember it, down to the artwork, fonts, and gag "coverage" lines inside. The only thing missing is the plastic sleeve.
To avoid the perception of a “switch”, I often give this to an audience member early in the show to "hold onto, just in case”. I ask if there are any insurance agents in the house (or anyone that has insurance). A gentleman with a suit jacket or woman with a purse is best (they tuck it away where they quickly forget it).
A sleeve keeps it clean between performances and helps prevent the audience member from opening it up before I ask them later in the show when I "mess up" the card prediction.
Be sure to "fail" twice. I lead the audience into thinking I am going to get the prediction right, "Your card is a red card right? Two of hearts!” FAIL, ask for policy, read coverage and get another chance “Oh, of course, it's a face card, Jack of Diamonds!”, FAIL AGAIN, then ask audience to unfold to read the “fine print”. Always get an immediate laugh and then, wait, how'd he do that?
The sleeve is important to how I perform the trick so I am going to try to find and print on a correct sized envelope. Hey Penguin, I would happily pay 3-4x the current price if it came with a nice envelope with art that matched the policy.
