Gary Ouellet's handling of the Goshman Card to Purse is in Close-Up Illusions. I'm not familiar enough with Goshman's original to know how Gary's version differs. I can tell you that it requires lapping, but that the spectator can remove the card from the purse, which can be examined.
In many ways Richard Sanders' version is a stand-up handling of Gary's version.
A couple of weeks ago I had an idea for a new handling of this trick. It is doable and seems to me to have some promise, but to determine if it is really deceptive would require some work in front of real audiences. Since I'm an amateur I just don't perform enough to stress-test this idea. So here it is -- anybody who wants to try it out is welcome to.
You start by showing what looks like a cups and balls cup, with a cover over the open end. You remove the cover and take out a shot glass.
The shot glass is placed on the table and the cup is inverted over it.
After the card is signed, etc., you remove the cup, revealing a folded card in the shot glass. This is handed to the spectator who unfolds it to reveal their signed selection.
The method is very simple. A folded duplicate card is in the cup. It stays in the cup when the shot glass is removed. When the cup is inverted over the shot glass the duplicate falls into the glass.
With the folded selection palmed in the left hand, the right hand lifts the cup to reveal that there's a card in the shot glass., and you put the cup down mouth up just behind the glass.
Now when you do the standard shuttle-pass action, you dump the duplicate past your left hand and it disappears into the mouth-up cup. (Obviously the cup needs felt or similar inside to kill the sound). You can now put the shot glass down on the table and hand the card out for unfolding, etc.
In the mirror this works pretty well, but that doesn't mean too much in the real world. But there's a very pleasing simplicity to it all. Plus after the trick, you put the shot glass back into the cup, put on the cover, and you are reset. Finally the cover cup acts as a carrying case, protecting the glass.
Anybody wants to try this out, I'd love to hear how it works.
