Mystery Box (Exotic Inlaid Wood) by John Kennedy(c. 1997) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
If you have ever followed my website you’ll know that I really love John Kennedy’s Mystery Box. I have purchased every version he has produced and until a few weeks ago had never seen this beautiful version. It is more practical than the Dave Powell version because it is the same size as the original box, but still looks very striking.
Although there have been many, many versions of this effect to me the early versions released by John Kennedy are still the best. And this is easily the most beautiful version from that era.
Effect: Magician brings out a small wooden box and places it on the table. A playing card is freely chosen and signed by a spectator. Card is shuffled back into the deck. Magician asks: “Do you think that I can find your card in less than 10 seconds without even looking at the cards?” He holds the deck behind his back for several seconds, brings it back out, announces “I’ve found it!.” He points to the wooden box. But, no way! No one has been any where near the box! Magician asks the spectator to lift the lid of the box and see what is in there. It is a folded card.
The magician picks up the box with his empty hand and tips out the card onto his open hand. The box is clearly empty and there is one folded card in the magician’s hand – with no moves or covers he asks the spectator to open the card. The spectator unfolds the card. It’s his card with his signature!
