Instead of mentally projecting your mentalism thoughts, type them here.

Corindas book 13 steps to mentalism, contained a prediction effect with a slate. Out of 52 alphabet cards, 10 were selected and inserted ( with backs to the audience) at the top of the slate. When the slate is turned around the cards match the prediction written on the slate by the performer....I N C R E D I B L E.
Does anybody know if this effect has, or preferably is currently being manufactured and sold by anyone? Thank you.

There are a number of variations of this effect on the market. One that uses a similar method is Magic, Inc.'s "Dr. Rhine Outdone".

I don't know if it's the same method. At Best Magic in Anaheim, we have a trick called "Spelling Bee." Your description sounds like that.

I'm not working there the next week or so, so can't give you more details, but if you called the shop, anyone there could.

Impropriety is the soul of wit.

For a more impromptu-looking presentation, you might also want to check out "Khan Artist" on Max Maven's Videomind.

Try contacting Oz Pearlma, he came up with something very similiar using a dry erase board, its a fantastic effect and a super sneaky method. Plus it is super easy to do. The only problem is he isnt marketing it as of yet, but maybe he will make one for you.

Spellin Bee is very similar....without the kicker of having also written down the ( the predicted word) on the board ala Corinda
