This is easy to set up and leaves you spectator with an impossible object. It is simple and logical,
a clear improvement on the classic.

There's a reason Greg Wilson is a working pro - his effects are direct, well thought out and
commercial. I love Card Warp, but it doesn't really make any sense to turn a card inside out, then
rip it in half. Sleeveless in Seattle is organic and makes sense, using objects everyone accepts as
"normal". Greg covers all the bases, as usual. It's up to each of us to create our own storyline.
Mine deals with wondering why the corrugated surface is on the inside when it would work better on
the outside to provide a more secure grip. As Greg says, keep the story simple and brief. Let this
strong visual effect do the talking. Great stuff!

I go to Starbucks and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf all the time. Just love the idea. It's amazing trick
and EASY to do! Practicing is the key to make it look smooth!

When I bought this my first thought was, "What the, how the, what?!". After watching the how-to, I
was blown away! Greg goes into so much detail in just under 13 mins. I wish there was a much better
explanation on how to do it standing however, he does touch on it and the idea on the deception and
the misdirection while standing was phenomenal. The pre-work, easy. The performance, very minimal
slight of hand work. Didn't think I would do much coffee magic, till I made the right choice by
purchasing this. You will use this when you walk into a coffee shop... period!
Brings the card warp into the real world. Can be done impromptu, but shouldn't be a problem to carry
the gimmick & a couple of preped ones with you. If turning them inside out as instructed is a
problem, I've found you can separate it at the glue point, turn it, & reglue it. Prepared ahead of
time. Easier & it ends up flatter. If doing it in the coffee shop, then do as he instructed. You'll
Every day materials, every body recognizes Starbucks sleeves, adds an additional dimension to card
I love the magic that you do especially when you're walking around in the city and in Manhattan
where I work there Starbucks cups Stars everywhere and coffee sleeves where at anytime or any place
where I'm at and it doesn't even have to be Starbucks I can perform these tricks and I love them so
thank you as always ready to perform
My Starbucks Barista's were blown away! Great little illusion! Carry it with me everywhere!
They should seriously consider adding Greg's face to MT. RUSHMORE! He is one of nature's noblemen.
THE TIP ON HOW TO REVERSE THE BANDS ITSELF...was worth the price.
Practice and in
little time you will be a pro.
There is a reason there is a Starbucks on almost every corner, and that there is a place for Greg to
sit and create great magic.
He is not only a prolific creator but also great instructor.
He is a real world performer that has the opportunity to make many mistakes.
instructions include many tips to avoid making those mistakes , which is invaluable.
"Sleeveless" is Greg's latest in a long line of incredible, visual magic.
is "card warp" with coffee sleeves.
Ya know;One sleeve is placed in another , at right angles
,AND that inner sleeve turns inside out , several times ( or more) while the outer sleeve remains
The spectator is left with both sleeves one of which is permanently , inside out.
The spectator doesn't get burned hands , just a badly burned brain. :)
If you like this
then you'll love "Coffee House Conjuring".
Think of buying a Wilson creation as giving Da
Vinci a can of paint.
