Card to Money Clip by Richard Gerlitz(c. 2008) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
It’s been 2 years since the last Gerlitz item was released, Orb of Truth, and that was quite a mechanical marvel. Now he has released three effects under a Pocket Mentalism Series banner. This one is clearly my favorite. The effect is powerful! The prop looks ordinary enough to divert suspicion but, more importantly, it all works effortlessly so you can concentrate on presentation.
Richard continues the tradition he set when he started his line of magic: great effects, great apparatus, and all in very limited editions that he strictly adheres to. So, don’t wait and be disappointed when that “Sold Out” comes up on his site.
For those who love magical mechanical devices, this will not disappoint. I am glad Richard showed an image of the underlying brass mechanism on his site to fully appreciate what one is getting, as he sends the apparatus already prepared, as pictured, for immediate performance. This is definitely one that will entice you to carry and perform as it wouldn’t be one to display in your magic collection. As I said earlier, the effect packs the power to impress any spectator.
Effect: The Magician reads the Spectators mind to correctly name his card. But even more amazing is the Magician’s money clip, sitting in plain sight the whole time, has a folded playing card attached to it. When this card is removed and opened by the Spectator, it is found to match exactly!
Approx. Price: $695.00 (2008) ***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.
