Imagine giving an astonishingly impossible card to someone important. Imagine the story he would tell!
“A piece was torn from a card with my signature. Then that piece was signed. And then... right in front of my eyes... the torn piece was reattached... BACKWARDS... to my signed card!”
It's an AMAZING thing to give away! And the handling is so easy you won’t believe how simple it is! An incredible optical illusion makes this one of the most amazing effects you’ll ever see with a deck of cards.
Each Albo Deck features Hannah Ammar’s Carinthian back design, which really highlights the look of the reversed portion of the card. Each deck contains 28 Albo cards with 28 regular cards that match. This way, the spectator can actually tear the piece from every card you’ll seem to alter by magic, without depleting your working deck with each performance. (After performing this hundreds of times I can tell you... it’s nice to have that regular card to match your Albo card!)
Why is it called the Albo Deck? The late Dr. Bob Albo once asked if I could find a method to reattach the final corner used to identify a restored card. But not in the normal way... he wondered if the corner could be reattached backwards! To make a long story short, playing with the idea revealed the amazing optical illusion that makes this so much fun to perform! You’d have to see it to believe it, but the spectators can look right at the RESTORED card while believing they’re looking at the TORN card! Which makes many wonderful things possible...
