Effect

Transform a signed card into an impossible object-that your spectator gets to keep!

You display both sides of a small printed Instruction Card for "The World's Greatest Card Trick" which you just received in today's mail and offer to try it out with the spectator's help. As you read off each step, the spectator follows the instruction. The instructions guide the spectator to select a playing card from a shuffled deck, sign its face, replace it in the deck and finally wrap the deck up in rubber bands, "magician-proofing" the pack. The spectator's signed selection remains in full view the entire time until it's cleanly buried in the deck. The spectator wraps the deck herself and then drops it into your jacket pocket.

The final instruction is then read, but it simply says "magically produce the card." Undaunted, you make a magical gestured over the Instruction Card-which you've been holding in plain view since the very beginning of the trick and when you turn it around, the other side is shown to have magically changed into the spectator's selected card, complete with their signature!

The Instruction Card is immediately given to the spectator to keep as a souvenir. It's an "impossible object" which she'll keep forever, a personalized memento of the time she witnessed "The World's Greatest Card Trick."

Memorable, humorous and totally baffling,
Easy to do (only one sleight required!),
Leaves the spectator with a permanent, personalized, impossible object
Side-Swiped comes with a detailed, 29-page booklet, fully illustrated by Tony Dunn which includes Simon's professional presentation and additional comments and variations along with enough cards specially printed by the US Playing Card Co. for 12 performances.

This effect is very visual, and very simple to do. There is really only one card move you'll need to do and it does leave a little discrepancy as it's executed, but your spectator will never notice. The instructions are written for a table, but it is possible to adapt this to walkaround if you use a spectator's hand as a temporary table. You'll also need a jacket or breast pocket in your shirt (if you don't wear a jacket) to make this look as presented. You can use your jeans pocket if they aren't too tight. Refills are available and you'll probably need them as you only get 12 to start out with.

The nice thing about this is that the gimmicks come 6 of one kind and 6 of another so you can repeat this at a close group and have a different card chosen.
