Tricks
Paul Harris: Screwed Deck; Retail $45 For Sale $15
The magician "screws" two halves of a deck together like a pool cue, but oops...it's mis-matched!

He gives it another twist and the deck becomes an ordinary, examinable pack of cards!

Easy to Learn and Perform


Customer Reviews: Screwed Deck by Paul Harris!
S. Patrick Toman
This is not new. I have been performing Paul Harris's "Screwed Dack" on and off for over 14 years. Now, this is a killer effect!! It is a killer effect for three reasons. The first reason is that it is not just another card trick. This is something that actually has a cute story and a flashy ending. The next reason is that the cards (all but one) are ungimmicked. Which means the deck comes out of the case ready to perform any card miracle you want. The deck can be setup or stacked, or with any number of gimmicked cards in the ready posistion. The last reason is that once you buy the effect and have the gimmicked box, it is easy to replace if the box wears out on you. (and using it for two solid years twice a week will wear the box out). This is a very unique effect that has stood the test of time and is something out of the (mundane) ordinary. I hope you give it a try. S. Patrick

David Williamson: Aunt Marys Terrible Secret Retail $25 For Sale $15
A Professional Card Routine in Three Acts, created by David Williamson!
Every family has their secrets. The Williamson family has Aunt Mary. A respectable woman with a murky past, Aunt Mary has finally come clean. Revealed here for the first time as a professional card routine in three powerful acts, Aunt Mary's Terrible Secret is well within the reach of any performer. Two audience members are invited to play a simple color matching game for the chance to win fifty-two dollars. The cards are unprepared, the money is real and this incredible, easy-to-master routine builds to a devastating climax that will leave your audiences stunned. After Aunt Mary's Terrible Secret, you'll never look at little old ladies the same way again.
Here's what the experts are saying... "Aunt Mary's Terrible Secret is too good to share. I have used this routine in paid performances for many years. I am as sorry to have to share it with the fraternity as I have been sorry to have to share it with the originator himself. Perhaps by buying this book, I will obtain retroactive permission for my past performances." Michael Weber "Quite simply, this is a highly commercial routine. It combines money, gambling, audience participation, and uncanny control over the cards to produce a routine that audiences love and remember." Darwin Ortiz "David has given the serious performer a truly masterful three-act professional performance piece that will leave his unwitting participants completely entertained and at a total loss as to any explanation." Roger Klause
Please note: This is a 44 page manuscript professionally produced by David Williamson and illustrated by Earle Oakes. It does not use gimmicked cards or gaffs of any kind. It is a complete and powerful gambling routine, that is insanely easy to do!

Omega Ring Flite by Bob Solari - For Sale $10

Dice Through Mirror by Magic Makers; Retail $45 For Sale $20
The Effect:
The performer shows a wallet with a small square in the middle. A mirror, attached to a ribbon is passed around for inspection, then inserted into the wallet. A die (singular for dice) is also inspected. The die is placed in the square in the wallet, then, bit by bit, it very slowly sinks until it completely penetrates the mirror and drops to the floor. The die and mirror are once more passed round for examination.

Dj vu Deck by David Regal; Retail $20 For Sale $12
EFFECT: The spectator simply names any card that they like. The magician removes a deck of cards, and claims he will make the named selection vanish from the deck. Spreading out the deck, however all of the cards are seen to be missing the faces. Offering to try to make their card come back, one of the blank-faced cards is very cleanly shown and placed under a spectator's hand. When they lift their hand and turn over the card, they are amazed to see it is their named selection!
The Magic Happens In The Spectator's Hand
Instantly Resets and No Table Is Required, Perfect For Walk-Around
Himber Wallet (3 X 5 ) with booklet of 21 routines For Sale $4

Penultimate (with matching pen) by Collectors Workshop; Retail $55 For Sale $30
The performer borrows a dollar bill which is signed by the spectator then wrapped in a silk hank. The performer uses his pen as a magic wand and waves it over the hank which is then shaken out. The bill has vanished! The performer begins to write an IOU but something is wrong with his pen. He opens it only to find the spectator's signed bill inside the pen where the ink should be.
Very nice adaptation of the Bill Tube principle. Ready to work any time, any where. Comes with duplicate working pen. Great walk-around magic or something for the boys at the office.
Divination Boxes. For Sale $ 8
(Two brass? cylinders will hold a small item. Spectator puts item in one of the cylinders and magician always knows which one.)

Magic Mints / The Amazing Candy Trick; Retail $20 For Sale $7
VISUALLY link two Lifesavers WITHIN INCHES of your spectators eyes. Follow it up with THE FRESHEST FINISH IN MAGIC. Highly recommended!

The spot drawings in the Duffie book are from a Dover book of clip art sold in most major bookstores in the United States. The only person they MIGHT be inappropriate for is a 5 year old boy, and I didn't think they would be buying the book.

Oh great, Richard, now that's TWO books they're going to want to burn.

Hope they don't find out about Hodges' Sexy Magic.

Oops! Never mind...

What purpose do these drawings have in the Duffie book?

They're simply decorative. They were done in the 1920s and 1930s, I believe.

Here\'s a link to some commentary from Duffie about the illustrations and a few examples of them.

Can't speak for others, but I quite liked the little illustrations.

Gino,

You haven't received a reply to your latest e-mail due to a family emergency in the Kruse family.

If Gary said he mailed it, I guarantee 100% that it has been mailed. Be at ease. You will receive the items you paid for.

Gino,

I have sent you an email with a scan of the post office receipt showing that your package was sent on Jun 2nd. It was sent insured and the package ID is 0618 as you can see from the scan. Please check your home and make sure your family didn't set it aside someplace for you. (My family does this to me every once in a while so that they can surprise me on a relaxing Sunday with a book that I had ordered in the past.)
