I was looking at this trick only a few weeks ago and I cannot remember the name of it!! Help. Very old effect. Card stand. Performer makes a prediction of two cards puts them in the stand with backs facing audience. Spectator picks two cards. They are put into the stand. Stand turned and prediction matches. What is the name of it?? I hate getting old.
Paul Curry Touch (also published as Infallible Prediction in Greater Magic)/Uf Grant "Touch a Card" Prediction. Concurrent releases. Basic principle without use of stand and prediction is written on face of a card.
Morris Stein and RM Jamison took idea and instead of writing on cards, used blank cards on which to write the prediction. Stein's marketed as "Predicto".
Ultissimo - Maury Kain released through Merv Taylor. First use of the mechanical stand for key move.
Using double facers/backers and the stand is found in TA Waters Touche
Others have released versions including Marcello Contento called Time ahead (round spinning stand), Berg Duo Prediction Deck (have not confirmed this), and Sammy Smith's number card version with written prediction and stand called Radar vision.
Early concept credit: deland two card monte and hofsinzer.
The one I mentioned by Aldo is a regular stand, the (jumbo) prediction cards on the stand are gimmicked (well one of them), two (regular) cards selected by spectators are put on the stand and there is a switch done with the (jumbo) cards on the stand. The switch is a thing of beauty. I made one for myself and had forgotten about it. I'll have to look for it. Thanks Syd for reminding me...
