Mind’s Eye Deck by Phil Goldstein(c. 1976) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
I think this is a very ingenious effect: a spectator freely chooses any one of the cards in the deck – all with different shapes on – and you immediately can tell them your card without having to touch or riffle through the deck.
It works by a very clever use of a old card principle – that defies detection. I like this a lot!
Effect: One of the greatest mentalism effects available! You’ll love performing this one. The performer displays a deck of about 40 cards. They are blank on the backs (so they cannot be marked). On the face of each card is a different simple drawing.
A deck of 40 blank backed drawings are shuffled. The performer turns his back and a spectator is instructed to cut the pack, remove the card cut to and replace the rest of the cards in their box. The spectator concentrates on the drawing on the chosen card, then pockets it. Before the performer turns around, he begins to accurately describe (or draw) the selected image. No Force Involved!
Taking a pad of paper, the performer makes a sketch which proves to be an exact duplicate of the chosen design. A great combination from Phil Goldstein and Ton Onosaka.
