Re: Legend by Thomas Baxter

Re: Legend by Thomas Baxter

In my mind the cheque and the cards are important and valuable objects in this effect. Hence the need for a safe container. My original thought was to use this for a television special -- to have the briefcase filled with actual money, rather than just a cheque. In that case the briefcase would be a...

Re: Legend by Thomas Baxter

Legend is a version of Any Card At Any Number that I have not yet released to the open market. The effect is that you hand someone a closed briefcase with the warning not to let it out of his possession until the performance is over. You explain that there are two things in the briefcase that will b...

Re: Rising Cards

My background understanding of this effect is that it was sold in a Toronto magic shop from some time in the 19-teens on, in a metal form, with a hook underneath that the fingers engaged to hold the houlette in place. In Toronto it was sold as The Upton Rising Cards. I've no idea whether Joe Whitlam...

Re: ...and now what is the best ACAAN ?

Patent Portent can be found:

Genii Magazine, Dec. 1999; Vol. 62, No. 12 (where the performer does touch the cards).

Also in CARD DUPERY, Hermetic Press, 2007 (where the performer does not touch the cards after the number is called).

All of the references I've found to the original set of Stars of Magic note that it came in a red binder. The set that I have is in a BLACK binder marked with the Stars of Magic logo on the front.

Re: Magician falls off stage

Jonathan:

The original opening for Spellbound had a reveal of the band on stage and then a black-art flash appearance of Doug in a Mephisto's Portal type of setup.

Spellbound was a very different show than The Magic Show, book-wise.
