The Travelling Hole by Tom Minnich, Paul Diamond(c. 1977) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
This effect was basically re-invented by Howie and Bob and called Nomadic Void c. 2002.
Effect: You show two thin plastic cards (about the size of bridge size playing cards) — one is red with a hole running thorough the center, and one is black and solid. The two cards are aligned and then pushed through the fist. The hole is now in the black card and the red card is solid. Cards can be freely and convincingly handled (but not examined).
Another possible effect is similar to that achieved in the Emerson and West packet effect “The Whole Thing” — by placing the red hole card on the black whole card, it looks like there is a black spot on the red card. You then show that the red hole card is now a whole card with a black spot. “Of course, if we got a black spot from the whole card, it must now have a hole!” The black card is now seen to have a hole through it.
Approx. Price: $5.00 (2005) ***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: qualitymagic.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
