Herbie the Mod Duck by Magic Inc.(c. 1972) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
There have been many versions of the Card Duck over the years. It was invented by Laurie Ireland and marketed by him as Otto, The Automaton Duck. Of course Ireland Magic Company became Magic Inc. when they moved from downtown Chicago, North to Lincoln Avenue.
Effect: Herbie is both beautiful in colorful plastic appearance, and also in operation. One simple movement causes him to select cards from a deck put in his feed box, so that he can find cards selected and marked by the audience. No sleight of hand is required. A booklet of instructions and routines is included, so that you can build the card duck into a complete act with many laughs.
Excellent for close up use. Shows up well on the stage. A great trick for kids. A beautiful prop for adult shows, bar use, close up magic – the perfect finish for a group of card tricks. In the booklet you will find excellent ideas for creating good magic and huge laughs with Herbie. Takes no skill and no manipulation of cards.
Approx. Price: $150.00 (2012) ***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.
