Improved Final Card by Milson-Worth(c. 1939,1979) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Variations of the Final Card effect have been around at least as early as 1930. I found an advert from the Gamages Catalog for Final Selection c. 1930. Abbott’s released The Last Card devised by Roydon c. 1945 and Jack Hughes produced his improvement c. 1946. This method/refinement for this version was invented by the prolific English inventor and creator Eric C. Lewis c. 1947. It is described starting on page 227 in Eric’s wonderful book A Continuation of Miracles. Until now, the most common modern release using Eric’s method was from Milson-Worth.
Effect: The improved Milson/Worth version of this amazing card prediction effect is in two parts: a folding stand and a 10-inch (25.4-cm) diameter, 4-color disc.
A card is predicted by the magician and the deck of cards shuffled by a spectator. 16 cards are counted out and placed under clips on the disc. 15 cards are then eliminated at the spectator’s direction. When the final card is turned over it proves to be the predicted card. So subtle and effective it will fool other magicians.
Approx. Price: $175.00 (2002) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
