The "I Hate Card Tricks"

Book of Card Tricks

Volume 1


by B. Robert Pulver



Jack B. Nimble

This effect was inspired by “The Stretcher” illusion, in which an assistant’s extremities are miraculously extended beyond the limits of any human being.

The Effect:

A Jack is placed into a tall “cabinet.”  The Jack’s “faces” are both visible through windows on the front.  The Jack is visibly stretched.  The card is then removed from the cabinet and shown to actually be twice its normal length.  The images on both sides of the card have been “stretched” as well.

The card is placed back into the cabinet and returned to its original state.  The card can then be handed out to the spectator.  It is completely normal.


Disclaimer: This effect requires a custom-printed gaff card. Instructions are provided for making a simple and inexpensive version. However, knowledge of and experience in card-splitting and/or other techniques for creating/printing custom-made gaff cards are recommended if a professional quality card is desired.
