X-Ray Vision Box (Mento Mystery) by Michael Baker

(c. 1914,2009) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)

This is a remake of a Floyd Thayer item called Mento Mystery c. 1914

Effect:  You ask for any pack of cards and have them shuffled and cut as often as desired. You then ask a spectator to place the deck into this wonderful little card case and close the lid. With a mere glance at the box, you at once name the first card of the deck which is then removed. Then you call another-and another-and so on through the deck if so’desired. Each time the cards may be shuffled and cut, and are never once handled by the performer. Furthermore, the card case may be subjected to the most critical examination at all times.

    Clever box with unique peek mechanism, but a bit pricey!

    So Michael Baker makes some great magic and this item is no exception. However, I do think it is a bit pricey for what it is. I guess it was just a small run of them and that is where the price came from.

    The box allows you to very cleanly divine what card has been placed into it. There is actually a clever idea that allows you to divine the card even when it is placed in the middle of a deck and the deck itself is placed in the box.

    I have not seen another item quite like this, but I believe it is very similar to an old Thayer effect called Mento Mystery. If you just want to work with a deck of cards this is perfect, but if you wanted something a bit more versatile I’d probably spring for the Mikame X-Ray Box.
