"This has been the Finale of my Close-up Shows, and my Encore for Stage, for several years now. It is one of the three best trick I’ve ever come up with in my professional career of 33 years, and I’m releasing it now for the very first time with all the details that make this a miracle for any lay audience – and I’ve fooled some of the smartest and most knowledgeable magical minds with it in my performances at magic conventions around the world." -Roberto Giobbi

When Roberto Giobbi wants to predict someone’s card he doesn’t mess around with convoluted dealing processes or clumsy presentations. He goes directly for the heart of the effect with an incredibly direct and frankly impossible trick. This is the one that will make your audience believe you can see the future. This is The Prophecy by Roberto Giobbi.

Here’s what happens:

The magician shows their audience a wallet. It’s opened, and emptied. It contains a single envelope and nothing else. The envelope is placed back inside the wallet, and then the wallet is handed to the spectator for safekeeping. Then the audience freely selects a card from an imaginary deck. The spectator opens the wallet, and the magician opens the envelope. Inside is the exact prediction of what the audience chose.

The Prophecy is a master class in magic performance. In addition to an incredible instructional video from Roberto Giobbi, you receive the Prophecy wallet. This wallet is beautifully constructed and allows you to perform incredibly strong magic. Perfect for close-up, parlor, and stage, this effect will deliver some of the strongest reactions you’ve ever gotten. This is The Prophecy by Roberto Giobbi.

Special thanks for inspiration goes to Kenton Knepper for his Off By One principle used in his effect Kolossal Killer.

Weak effect and cheapo props. Could work as $10 for just the instructions or more if it were a decent wallet. Worth neither the price nor Giobbi's name.

An impossible trick + a versatile prop + a mini-magic course, all wrapped into one Report this review

This really is the complete package:

1. AN IMPOSSIBLE TRICK: The idea of a thought-of card appearing in a wallet in your spectator's pocket is quite astounding. Giving the wallet up front to your spectator to hold on to also strengthens the impossibility. Having your spectator shuffle an imaginary deck also makes for some fun byplay, but it also creates an outcome that seems all the more baffling and astounding. And despite what some might think, the method doesn't rely on multiple layers of equivoque, and aside from the colour, it really is a genuinely free choice on the part of your spectator.

2. A VERSATILE PROP: The wallet has the potential for being used as a tool in the rest of your magic. Especially if you don't yet own a Himber Wallet, or have always wanted to get your hands on the older style like the one included here, this is a great opportunity.

3. A MINI MAGIC COURSE. The teaching is superb, and is much more than just an explanation of how to do this trick. At times aspects of it become a mini-course in improving your card magic and performance. Giobbi covers all the aspects of the handling, and while equivoque isn't at the heart of the routine, there are numerous "outs" that you're working with, in order to make things seem truly impossible for your spectator, and by the time you've watched the video you'll know exactly what to do.

What it does, it does superbly, because it is a highly polished work of art. I highly recommend it.

Predict the unseen... cool! Report this review

Personality plays a large role... making an event out of what could be a very quick trick is so easy. One can use his/her own character around the suggested banter and actions quite nicely. The result I get from spectators is one of awe. I mean, predicting a card that is invisible... it’s like predicting a card the spectator has only thought of—wait, that’s another trick.

The Prophecy Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 18th, 2022
I was really impressed with this routine and of course Roberto’s lecture that gives so much more insight to presentation and routining that makes the effect an absolute miracle
However, I was not pleased with the Himber wallet with the clip lock that is provided . Somehow when it is opened from the left to the right, the left top corner curls inward because of the tension of the ************. This makes it looks suspicious. I have another Himber wallets (without clip lock) that does not do that. However, it is too small for the purpose of this effect by Roberto.
Can you recommend any similar wallet for me with a clip lock. I would be happy to pay for it.
