by Professor Spellbinder and Steve Dusheck*
This is an inexpensive (I found mine in a Dollar
Store) wallet that you gimmick yourself to perform several
mind-boggling effects. The mind boggling effects include Steve
Dusheck's Dollar Punch and Pad-I-Add Trix,
which he was kind enough to give me permission to fit to my
Wizard's Wallet. But the Wallet can also be used to good effect
with a signed Ambitious Card that jumps from the deck to
the Wallet, and a Mind Reading effect. Combining all of
the effects mentioned gives you a nice close-up routine that has
a surprising beginning, mystifying middle and an astounding end.
In case you can't find the correct kind of
wallet in a Dollar Store, I provide you with some on-line sources
which, while not a buck, are pretty inexpensive. No leather work
is involved in gimmicking the wallet, just simple additions
combined with easy to learn handling techniques. Steve gives you
the history of his Dollar Punch and how he gimmicks the
various styles for this effect.
Sandler just gave me permission to include a mention of his Illusion
of Fusion as a way to make it possible to borrow the dollar
bill needed for Steve Dusheck's Dollar Punch AND add one more
incredible miracle to the Wizard's Wallet routine. You'll still
have to contact Sam to learn the secret if you don't already know
it, but it's well worth the time and money. Details are in an
addendum to the e-Book.
* Steve Dusheck (1944 - 2019) Invented Dollar
Punch (1964), and Pad-I-Add (1970), as well as collaborating with
me on this Wizard's Wallet in 2011.. He will be greatly missed.
