Pickpocket (David Acer)
Just when you thought there was nothing new in packet tricks, along comes Pickpocket with a roar!
Four blank-faced cards are introduced, each with a picture of a quarter. The spectator is given a 5th card, blank-faced with no quarter. Here comes the magic – one by one, each of the quarters vanishes, each more magically than the last, leaving the magician with no money at all on his cards! However, when the spectator examines his own card, he discovers that all four quarters have now become imprinted on its face!
The magician picks up the the card in the hand of the spectator and shakes out the image of the coins and they become real coins and the cards are shown to have all images vanished.
Supplied with cards and illustrated booklet, plus additional ideas from Gary Ouellet and Jay Sankey.
