Card Rising Box (Oak) by Nick de Palma(c. 1946,1995) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
According to Claude Klingsor in his stunning book, The Big Book of Rising Cards, this method of the Rising Cards was first introduced by Jack Hughes and his Card Rising Box c. 1946. What distinguishes this method from, for example, Thayer’s Card Rising Box Unique (# 607, c. 1930) is that Jack Hughes’ version uses no threads. It was clearly a popular approach because many dealers and manufacturers have since created their own versions.
Here is Nick de Palma’s version which works well and looks good.
Effect: A neat oak box is freely shown all round. A pack of ordinary cards (they may be BORROWED) is introduced …. SEVERAL cards are FREELY selected (No Force). The selected cards may be marked for future identification. Cards are returned to the pack and all placed into the box. Box is placed on the palm of the hand, and the other hand waved over it to show the absence of any external connections.
Soon the LID of the box is SEEN to SPOOKILY OPEN . . THEN . . the first selected card rises, peeking out of the box. Magician removes this card and hands it direct to spectator, to confirm his initials. The lid of the box is closed, and the remaining cards rise from the box in the same manner!
