Card Tricks

The Pothole Trick.
            As seen done by Michael Close, watch as a hole is punched into a card and then is moved from place to place until
            it is completly removed from the card and 'placed' onto the card the spectator is holding. A mind blowing illusion!

Invisible Deck
You are asked to take an invisible deck into hands and shuffle the invisible cards. An invisible card is selected and remembered. The invisible cards are returned to their box. A real deck is presented and the spectator tells their selected card. The chosen card is found face down in the deck where all other cards are face up.
Color Monte
Son, Let me show you a card trick ! Three cards are shown, Two Red Diamonds and One Blue Diamond, yet I can never find the Blue Diamond. Even with a double or nothing chance, I discover a surprise before I ever find Two Red Diamonds and One Blue Diamond ever again.
Flustered
Sure I see the Four Red Two's and the One Black Spot, Yet take away the Black Spot and One Red card and watch the Black Spot Card disappear before your very eyes.
Himber Vanishing Card.
A black wallet is presented completely empty, wrapped in a rubber band and placed on the table. A deck of cards is presented and a card is allowed to be picked freely. Returned to the box, the cards are again presented only to find the selected card gone. Where you ask ? Of course, the rubber band is removed from the wallet and the selected card is found inside
Rising Card
A card is selected freely and returned to the deck and into the box. Mysteriously, as if by Magic, the selected card rises from the box.
The Princess Cards
Five Cards are shown and one card is simply thought of by someone. The cards are squared and one is selected and put aside. When cards returned and shown the thought of card has disappeared. (This is a one on one illusion )
DOTS Amazing
A card is freely selected and placed face down. The remaining cards are shown to all have the same colored dots. The selected card is presented and has the only "odd" color. But wait, the cards are returned and the opposite color is placed face down only to show that the remaining cards are now all the same but opposite color again. The really odd part is, the cards contain many different colored dots. Now dots amazing !
Smiling Assassin
Wow, not for the faint of heart. A deck of cards are shown all to have Smiley Faces on their backs. A card is freely selected and buried back into the pack. The selector of the card is loaned a small cap gun and asked to fire upon the deck of cards. After a quick inspection, the selected card is found without a smile and a gun shot wound.
Wild Card Trick
10 cards are all shown to be of the Five of Spades and placed face down. A card is freely selected from a deck of cards. The selected card is then used to change all the face down Five of Spades to the face of the selected card
Say it again Sam
I didn't have much to do the other night so I spent some time putting names on the backs of all my playing cards. Yeah, really bored ! Anyway, I was thinking of a card that you would pick if I asked you and I wrote the name "Sam" on the back of it. If you could tell me the name of any card, we can see if I was write. I am !
B-Wave.
Four cards are shown face down. A queen is selected at random. The queen selected is found face up in the stack AND the queen that is face up is also from a different colored deck !

Abbott 10

Money / Coin Triks

Watch that dollar bill.
          Watch closely as a borrowed dollar bill is miraculously changed into a   $100.00 bill and then returned again, only to
          show both hands empty, except for the $1.00 bill

Penetrating Coins.
A small glass is presented upon which a small square of rubberized material rests with a nickel and a penny on top. A free selection causes one to be removed while the other is clearly and visibly pushed through the material into the glass. There is absolutely no hole left in the cover. These are removed as two half dollars are displayed as well as two plastic drink cups and a playing card. The card is placed between the two glasses and the two coins are dropped into the top glass and the two become one and one passes through the glass and the card into the glass below.
Silver, Copper, Brass.
Three coins are shown. A Copper Mexican Centavo, a Brass Chinese coin and an American half dollar. What as the Copper & Brass turn into the Half dollar. Now the half dollar becomes the Copper & Brass Coins. A true miracle to watch !
Interlude.. Ante Up !
A small yellow poker chip is shown yellow on both sides only to be turned red with a pass of the hand. As it is show red on both sides it quickly becomes yellow again on both sides. This continues until it is shown that what has existed all along are actually 1 half dollar on one yellow poker chip

Metaphysical - Penetrations & Abstractions !

The pen is visibly pushed through the bill, you can see it hanging and through the other side. The pen is ripped from the bill only to provide the bill returned unharmed.
Misled (Coperfield Version)
You've seen this one on TV. A pencil is openly displayed and a dollar is borrowed. Before your eyes you will see the pencil penetrate the bill only to be ripped out and the bill is just fine. Again the pencil is cradled in the dollar and is then passed through the fold only again to show that no harm has come to the dollar.
Psychic Key Case
You are asked to initial a dollar bill with a 3 digit number and fold it in half. Then it is folded in half again and placed in a small envelope. The Psychic Keys are presented and several an attempts to divine the number and fail. You are asked to get the bill out of the envelop to check the number and find it gone ! Oh where oh where has it gone ? Only the Physic Key knows for sure

A Rhapsody in Rope Illusion:

They are tied together and slid to the end, untied and a short and long rope are again presented A long red rope is produced as well as a frustrated magician. He clearly shows one long rope and claims he just cant remember if this trick is with one or two ropes and behold he now displays two ropes only to have them return to one and then three different lengths which are transmuted into three ropes the same length only to return back to one ! Realizing the audience is on to him he believes they think it is the colors of his ropes so he proceeds to bring out three ropes of different length only to be displayed visibly as three ropes the same length. The three are returned to three different lengths and tossed into the audience. Next a Long piece of rope is presented only to be cut in half by a you. The two ropes are restores to new with a twist !
Multiplying Red Balls (Vanish & Produce)
A single red ball is shown and placed in hand. But where did it go ? Now there's two but one disappears only to reappear in the other hand, but wait, now there's three, no. now there's four. But wait, four turns to three, three turns to two and two turns to one until all the red balls are gone.
