Shuffle Sack
by Jim Gerrish

Shuffling Jumbo Cards can be messy. Cards can fly hither-thither, around the table, on the floor. Use my mesh-front, see-through Shuffle Sack and shuffle the cards as much as you want, faces front or back without losing one. What the audience doesn't know is that the Shuffle Sack can switch Cards or even whole decks of Jumbo Size Cards all while innocently shuffling away. The Sack is empty at the start and empty at the end, but the cards are now stacked or set up however you want and you did it right in front of their snoopy little noses. Spectators can also use it to shuffle Jumbo Cards without discovering its secrets. Make it yourself by sewing, or by iron-on webbing or fabric gluing.



See-Thru Box
by Jim Gerrish

This $10 transparent Ring Box can be used for a variety of different effects, from Linking Wedding Rings, to an Ambitious Jumbo Card Color-change Finale, and many more (included in the e-Book). Try this: The box has a Jumbo blue-back card folded and placed in it at the start. It sits on the table while you perform some Jumbo Card tricks with a red-back deck of cards. One of the tricks involves a free selection of a red-back Jumbo Card that is signed by the spectator. During the course of the trick, the red-back card disappears. The Transparent Box is opened and the Jumbo blue-back card it contains is unfolded. It is the spectator's chosen card SIGNED and TRANSFORMED into a blue-backed Jumbo Card.



Got Your Number
by Jim Gerrish

Three spectators choose a random single digit number from 0 to 9, which you write down for the audience to see. Let's say they pick "7, 2, 9" A fourth spectator removes the Zodiac Medallion from around your neck and shows the audience the numbers "7 2 9" that are ENGRAVED into the back of the metal medallion. The idea dates back to 1939 (Steward James), goes through improvements from Al Koran (1968) and Johnny Thompson, and finally my own version with real metal engraving of the chosen numbers on a decorated metal medallion you buy inexpensively, or make yourself (carved wood).
