IMHO the trick ( minus some easily managed script issues ) is just fine. The wallet is what it is, a place to keep your bet and a card that ... just happens to be the one they could not cut to no matter how many times they tried ;)

I agree with Mr. Doomo (Tony): it's a wee bit too proppy to get past spekkies. Nevertheless, it's from Dave Solomon, and we all know, the man don't deal with crap.
Now, if I could muster the same effect with my Real Man's Wallet . . . Tony, I've been using your Steve Draun creation as my everyday wallet for years now. When they see their card end up between my driver's license and blood donor card, I couldn't ask for better audience interest and reaction.
Gotta get me a couple of Doomo's Real Man's Coin Purses. The rising card in the ziploc bag looks like a killer, too.

But saying that this is not a wallet is a bit like saying that a Maple is not a tree because it doesn't look like a Blue Spruce. It is a wallet, it's just not one that you like. Nothin' wrong with that. Viva la difference.

Perhaps the vast majority of the audience understood that what was on the screen was not James Earl Jones claiming to be Mark Hamills father.
