Leather Impact was one of the most popular items in Howie Schwarzman’s Limited Editions line. So popular that they have had it remade, and it’s even better than the original!
Leather Impact is based on Roy Walton’s brilliant card effect, Impact, which first appeared over 40 years ago in the book, The Devil’s Playthings. Frank Garcia came up with the idea of replacing the paper envelopes with leather wallets and the rest, as they say, is history.
Effect: Show four small wallets, each containing a face down playing card. There’s a hole in each wallet so you can see what’s inside. Push the four cards out of the wallets and face down on the table. Ask a spectator to turn the cards face up. Each card is an Ace, one of each suit. Now, ask the spectator to name her favorite suit. Let’s say she names Diamonds. Return the cards face down into the wallets, showing that each wallet is just large enough to hold one card. Explain that you will try and make the wallet containing the selected suit reverse itself within the other three. Tap the wallets on the back of your hand, then spread the wallets to show one of them is now face down! Set the face down wallet on the table. While you have been successful in causing one wallet to turn over, you are not yet sure if it is the correct one! Before removing the card to check, offer to repeat the effect! Pick up all of the wallets and turn them with the holes face-up. Show all fours wallets, each card is seen face down. This time, instead of causing one of the wallets to turn face down, you give a little tap, and the card inside the wallet actually turns face up! And, it’s the selected suit!
A fabulous close-up routine with a very strong finish! Comes complete with four genuine leather wallets and the complete routine.
