Torn and restored... as simple and direct as that!

A card is freely selected from your deck. You invite a spectator to sign the card.

You take the card between your thumb and index finger and tear off a corner in front of your spectator.

No optical illusion or the like: the corner of the card is genuinely torn, as your spectator can clearly see.

Everything is completely clean! So far, so good...

Now you take the torn corner and throw it towards the card.

At that very moment, it seems to reattach itself in full view and the card is now perfectly intact.

Not the slightest trace of a tear remains! You let your spectator keep it as a souvenir!


  • No force
  • Very easy -- NO manipulation
  • The card is GENUINELY torn and IMMEDIATELY restored!
  • HIGHLY visual, yet there's nothing to see!
  • IMMEDIATE reset
Once you see your spectator's shocked reaction, you'll perform FLASHBACK all the time!

A creation of Mickael Chatelain

New Take on Torn & Restored Card Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 18th, 2017
I am a huge fan of Mickael Chatelain's work and his ideas are very clever and he has that think outside the box mentality which makes his gimmicked magic quite visual and usually quite easily learned. Flashback is a new gimmicked card that allows you to give the impression that you are tearing a corner out of a selected card and then visually restoring it right before the spectator's eyes. The method is really clever and there is only one sleight used. If you can do a double lift, you are golden. There is a bit of acting involved when you tear the corner off the card (you don't really tear anything off, you mime the action). This is the only thing that makes me give this 4 out of 5 stars, because you have to sell the tearing of the card. Other than this, if you are a fan of Mickael's gimmicks, you will love this.
