Through the magic of Google I was able to find the following from an eBay description:
PAUL CURRY PRESENTS " DIRTY TRICKS " Copyright 1976
EFFECT : The effect involves a story about a political election in a samll town where the Republicans hired four tought Republicans from another town to kidnap one of the Democrats. You demonstrate the story.
A spectator counts the cards. There are 10 Donkeys and 10 Elephants. This, you explain, is the situation before the voting starts. Then, the kidnapping takes place. You demonstrate this by sliding one of the Donkey cards to one side and burying it in with the kidnappers,( the extra 4 Elephant cards that are off to one side.) Continuing your story, you say that the Democrats quickly learned what had happened, but couldn't discover where the missing Democrat was being held. However, one of the Democrats was a magician who promised to work things out so that there would again be a tie vote, but stressed that he wouldn't tell anyone how he did it because magicians never reveal their secrets. At this point you assume the role of the magician in the story and direct the spectator. One by one you have him pair off the Elephant and Donkey cards. At the finish there is again a 10 to 10 tie vote despite the fact that the spectator controlled the cards throughout and did the counting.
The second climax comes when, as you continue the story, the baffled Republicans demand an explanation from the 4 kidnappers on why they failed to make off with 1 of the Democrats. The kidnappers insisted that they had done their job..but when the "5" cards that were placed aside ( 4 Elephants & 1 Donkey ) are examined it is discovered that the Donkey card has vanished ! You finish by admitting that even you are puzzled by what the magician accomplished !
This is typical Paul Curry GENIUS. Cards are brand new..Very detailed instruction booklet and a card wallet included.
It sold last April and can be found here: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... &rd=1&rd=1
You might send a note to the buyer and see if he's interested in selling.
