Are you looking for the perfect "Any Card Called For" effect? How about the perfect "Any Card to Wallet" effect? Maybe the perfect "Invisible Deck" effect? Are you looking for the perfect "You Name It" effect? Are you looking for the perfect "Thought-Of Card to Impossible Location" effect? Then the dirty Work Station by Jansenson Magic is the answer you've been looking for all these years.
We had the pleasure of Jansenson, one of Argentina's most famous and prestigious magicians, visit us in our shop, and when he performed all of the effects described above, our jaws literally dropped and our minds soared with the possibilities this item has! Just imagine:
The performer leaves an unprepared envelope upon his close-up pad. He states that inside is a single unprepared card. He then asks two volunteers to think of a card number and a card suit. Let us say that the first volunteer mentions the number "8" and the second volunteer names "clubs" (it is a truly free choice among the spectators). Showing his hands completely empty, with the sleeves rolled up, the performer picks up the envelope, opens it or tears it apart, and reaches inside, pulling out a single card. Incredibly, it is the 8 of Clubs! The envelope can be completely examined as well as the card. This can be repeated immediately with another envelope and another free selection!
But that's not all! Oh, NO! The performer spreads a deck of blank-faced cards upon his close-up pad. With the exception of the missing faces, the cards are normal and can be checked and shuffled by a spectator. The performer asks the spectator to merely think of any card number and any suit. The performer drops the cards face-up and begins to mix them up on the pad and asks the spectator to name their selection. Let us say that the selection called for is the 3 of hearts. The performer gathers the cards and asks the spectator to imagine that their selected card begins to materialize within the blank-faced cards themselves. And it does, for as the spectator mixes the cards and spreads them out upon the pad, their freely-selected card is seen amongst the blank-faced deck. INCREDIBLE!
Wait! There's so much more!
A regular blue-backed deck of cards is shuffled freely and inspected by the spectator. There is no funny stuff at all! An unprepared wooden box, card box, whatever container you would like to use is introduced and examined by the spectator. The cards are then assembled and placed within the box as the performer asks the spectator to think of a number of a card and a card's suit. The spectator freely names the 5 of diamonds. With empty hands and rolled-up sleeves, the performer opens the box and dumps out the cards, ribbon spreading them about the close-up pad. There is one, and only one red-backed card in the middle of the spread. This in itself is a surprise as the cards were examined earlier, but the spectator takes the red-back card and turns it over herself -- it is the 5 of diamonds!
