Soft Shoe Monte uses just three jumbo cards (with the requisite Bicycle backs, thank you very much) to pull the proverbial wool over the eyes of your spectators. Through three phases, though it seems as if everything has been explained clearly and that the rules couldn't be any easier to follow, the money card is never where they expect it. Even when you use one hand and two cards, the spectators are completely flummoxed.
This is a trick that plays huge, packs small and packs a punch.
Masterfully deceptive, ingeniously clever and devilishly entertaining, Jim Steinmeyer's Soft Shoe Monte isn't just cheating, it's a complete stand-up routine that makes dishonesty a sure thing.
ANY card is selected from a regular deck. The card is returned, you show the top card say 4C, they state that this is NOT their card. Give them this card to hold. A second card is shown say KH and placed on to the face of the deck, this is also NOT their card (not your day). Visually the KH changes into a card with the words LOOK IN YOUR HAND printed on it. They now look in their hand to see they hold the SELECTED card!
Card visually changes to read Look In Your Hand Spectator is shocked to see they are holding selected card!
A card is selected by the spectator and signed. The selection is placed face down on to the face-up pack, and the card is magically dissected into two pieces - without any cover or funny moves! One half slides one way, and the other stays in place. The card is pushed back together, turned over and handed back to the spectator to keep as a souvenir.
Two cards are freely chosen. The performer claims the card on the table is his prediction of both free selections.
The prediction however has two backs and no faces! The performer splits this prediction card in two.
The prediction card becomes both selected cards! These cards can even be signed.
Without hesitation or odd moves, the two cards are then squeezed back into one all backs card but that's STILL not all!
A snap of the fingers and the card turns inside out, making a double face card of the two chosen cards!
Straight to the effects, with no funny sleights. Weird, visual magic that is truly different.
Note: The rest of the deck is entirely examinable.NO PALMING
Simple, basic sleights and common fundamentals required only, along with the special card enclosed. If you can use a key card or control two cards to the bottom of the deck, you can do this trick immediately.THE SPECIAL CARD MAKES THE CRAZY EFFECTS POSSIBLE.
Audiences can't believe what they are seeing! All the changes are quick and clean.
It's now easier than you would ever imagine!

Great amount of fun! Perfect for a fortune telling reading routine!
The magician explains that in every deck of cards, there is one card that is more lethal than the rest. He spreads through the cards and removes the King of Clubs, pointing out the King's razor sharp sword.
The Magician then has the spectator select another card (let's say the two of hearts) explaining that this card is going to act as the unwilling volunteer. The two cards are placed face to face for only a few seconds.
When they are separated, jaws will drop as the two of hearts is now missing its pips. When the King is turned over, impaled on the King's sword are the two missing hearts from the selected card!
"Stabbed in the Pack," comes with custom cards printed by the US Playing Card Company on Bicycle card stock, simply add your own deck of Bicycle Cards.
It also comes complete with photographic instructions and as an added bonus, an additional routine using the cards included!
Everyone, except the magician and the assistant, see the card and remember it. Let's say that the selection is Seven of Diamonds. The spectator puts the card back in the middle of deck. Magician explains that riffling deck makes the card information rise to the top of deck. He riffles the deck, and then gives the top card to the assistant. Let's say that the top card is King of Clubs. The assistant receives the King of Clubs and looks at it carefully. When magician asks the assistant about the spectator's card, the assistant reveals it correctly - the answer is Seven of Diamonds. You may not realize its true value on the video... Just get one, and you will be surprised!
A card is turned face up on back of deck of cards and is displayed towards the audience. Suddenly the card starts floating out towards the audience away from the deck. It just looks like it is FLOATING in space, but its just the static-charge! The cards then slowly floats back onto the deck. Very Strong Magic! NO Threads!
Fantastic Walk Around Magic! Instructional DVD Included.The Stickman Jumps from Card to Card!
ANY card is freely selected and signed on the face. Visibly draw a large stickman on the back of any card, YOU REALLY DRAW THE STICKMAN.
The stickman jumps off the back of the card onto another card several times. The stickman is cut into the center of the deck only to jump back up to the top!

Eventually you say, it became apparent that all four cards could be Jokers! However, when you show the cards, they are all the same, but they are all blank! You definitely wanted to buy the trick, but you are too late, because now you instantly show all four previously blank cards have "SOLD" signs on them!!! Magically a "SOLD" sign vanishes from one of the cards. That is the card you bought! "Let's see if the magic acard works," you say, as you wave the card over the cut deck. The spectator turns over the card he cut to - say the Jack of Spades. BINGO! When you pass the MAGIC CARD through your han, the Jack of Spades appears printed on it! You hand it to the spectator who wil be STUND!
A blank unfolded card box visibly prints itself, then is folded into the shape of a box, and a regulation deck of cards is magically produced from it.
