Pocket This - Christopher Congreave and Gary Jones
GJ 6 Cards to Pocket (Gary Jones' signature routine) - Many magicians have been trying to get Gary to release this routine for years. Now he's finally sharing it with the magic community. The cards, a signed ace to six, all vanish individually and appear in order in the magician's pocket. Gary Jones has been using this routine for many years, but this is arguably the best version of this classic. It can be performed close up, cabaret and parlor.
CC Cards to Pocket - The signed ace to four vanish one at a time. The first three appear in the magician's pockets, the final card vanishes from inside the spectator's hand and appears inside the magician's wallet (which has been on the table all along!) Highly Commercial.
CC Cards to Pocket - Alternative Ending
GJ Pocket to Pocket (incorporating Gary's Ambitious Card) - A fantastic sequence that is stunning on its own or you can add to any ambitious card routine, your spectators won't believe their eyes!!!
GJ Repeat Signed Cards to Pocket - 3 cards are selected and signed. One at a time they appear in different pockets, then as quick as a flash they instantly jump straight back to the pockets. Excellent!
Top Con Control - A new, easy and deceptive way to control a card to the top of the pack.
John Carey's inspired by Lance (performed by Christopher Congreave) - 4 kings are placed onto the table and a signed card placed in between them. The signed card vanishes from between the kings and appears in your pocket. Again, you show the cards but this time the cards are isolated in the spectator's hand. BOOM!! Under these impossible conditions the signed card again vanishes, and makes it appearance back to your pocket. Commercial magic at its best.
Bonus: GJ's No Sleep Plus - A brilliant transposition routine. I don't want to spoil the surprise!
Time Approximately 2hr 07min
Pseudo Pickpocket - This is a brilliant and commercial plot that Chris Congreave and Gary Jones have been performing at their gigs to fantastic spectator reactions. Imagine being able to get a signed, or a merely thought of card, into a spectators wallet. For the professional there is also a method of getting your contact details into a spectators wallet! Pure gold to the working pro.
CC Pickpocket - A card is signed and lost in the pack. Two aces are placed in to the spectators wallet, and you tell them you will pick their pocket. The wallet is placed where you cant possibly reach it .or can you? The aces are visibly produced. Then the spectator removes their wallet thinking the aces will be there wrong, its the signed card!
GJ Signed Card to Card box - Dr. Daleys last trick meets signed card to card box! The best bit is NO PALMING!
CC Thought of Card, GJ KickBack Pick Pack Pocket, Cash Credit Card Pickpocket, Wallet Transpo, John Careys Signature Transpo.

Card To Wallet (World's Greatest Magic)
The card-to-impossible-place plot is almost as old as card conjuring itself with the earliest ancestor of the trick we now call the Card To Wallet appearing as The Card in the Pocketbook in early magic literature. Over the next two centuries, magicians devised a myriad of ways to create the effect of a selected playing card appearing mysteriously in the performers wallet and in this collection, youll find an amazing variety of methods for all skill levels. John Mendoza begins with two selections appearing in the zippered compartment of a wallet that was in plain sight throughout the routine and theres no palming involved. Likewise, Alexander deCova has devised a way of recreating the famous LePaul effect of a signed playing card appearing inside an envelope and, once again, there is no palming involved. Michael Ammar is next with an extremely logical approach to the effect as a torn playing card visibly changes into a credit card while, naturally, the playing card is found restored in the performers wallet in the space previously occupied by the credit card. Then, Eddie Tullock, the king of trade show performers, demonstrates how to turn a basic card-to-wallet effect into a powerful promotional tool. Dan Fleshman offers his take on the classic Red Hot Momma effect with a socko wallet finish while Alex Elmsley demonstrates a card-to-wallet effect that uses no gimmicked wallets and is virtually always ready to perform. Finally, Eric DeCamps presents his card in wallet routine with three selections that can play in a stand-up as well as close-up situation.
The discovery of a chosen and oftentimes signed playing card in the magicians wallet is a centuries-old crowd pleaser and if youre looking to add this all-time audience favorite to your repertoire, you wont find a better starting point than this collection.

One of card magics most direct and dramatic tricks!
Since the early 1700s, magicians have been dazzling their audiences by finding selected playing cards with knives. In the intervening years, legendary magicians such as Charles Bertram, Nate Leipzig, Karl Germain, Max Malini, and countless others have used this effect to astound onlookers and forge reputations.
On this DVD, youll be treated to seven different interpretations of the Card Stab. Johnny Thompson begins with Max Malinis legendary version as he stabs three selections from cards scattered across a table while blindfolded. Michael Ammar contributes another legends take on the Card Stab this time Nate Leipzig as two cards are located by a knife thrust into the center of a pack of cards thats been wrapped in a napkin. In a similar vein, Frank Garcia enables a spectator to stab their own signed selection in a wrapped-up pack while also providing a lovely bonus card production from a card case. Daryl finds a selected card by stabbing through a newspaper that covers cards that are spread across a tabletop while Jeff Sheridan expands on a Milbourne Christopher concept and stabs a card from a shuffled deck while its suspended in a bag fashioned from a paper napkin. Steve Dacri demonstrates how to make the Card Stab play big as he stabs two selections right out of the air and Paul Potassy shows off the trick he used as an encore when he performed on some of the worlds most prestigious stages.

Close-Up Magic #1 (World's Greatest Magic)
Magicians who specialize in close-up magic are constantly in search of material that doesn't use playing cards. Easily seventy-five percent of the magic that's been published over the last 50 or 60 years has been card magic of one kind or another so quality non-card material is a relatively scarce commodity in the literature.
On this DVD, you'll meet seven different performers presenting and teaching powerful close-up routines that will wow any audience and there's not a playing card in sight! The legendary Bruce Cervon starts off with a beautifully routined piece of magic where a borrowed handkerchief is clearly seen to be burned, magically repaired and then used for a stunning production. Glen Falkenstein, of the famed mentalism team of Falkenstein & Willard, combines two simple and well-known dealer items to create a beautiful hybrid of magic while Michael Ammar gives you all of the work on Stefan Schutzer's wonderful animated bill effect. Bob Read is next with a hilarious routine that will make you sorry you laughed so hard because you will be badly fooled by the trick's end. Mark Leveridge offers an elegant and very magical coin box routine while Flip brings the mystery of the classic linking rings to a few safety pins. Finally, Bill Malone performs and teaches a wonderful (and wonderfully portable!) Cups and Balls routine that will charm young and old alike.
been said that even the world's largest and most spectacular stage illusion cannot
create the impact that feeling of pure astonishment of a good, well-performed
piece of close-up magic and on this DVD, you'll find seven compelling pieces of
evidence to that effect.

Thumb Tips (World's Greatest Magic)
The thumb tip is one of the most utilized and valuable gimmicks in magic but it also wins the title of perhaps its most badly used. However, the thumb tip, despite repeated exposures, can still create miracles when used properly and judiciously.
On this DVD, youll see ways to use a thumb tip that youve never dreamed of. Michael Ammar presents a poignant story with just a few coins that your audience will always remember. Richard Osterlind tears open a signed packet of sugar substitute and miraculously restores it while Roger Klause conjures silver coins from thin air with just a borrowed dollar bill. If you think you know the traditional vanishing handkerchief, youre about to be badly fooled by Alexander de Cova and Paul Wilson. Jeff Sheridan offers his versions of two classic thumb tip pieces while Ted Lesley and Dan Harlan demonstrate effects suitable for a stand-up performance. Larger stage tricks like 20th Century Silks and Blendo are turned into powerful close-up effects by Fernando Keops and Steve Dacri and Al Schneider performs a quaint mystery with nothing more than a borrowed dime. Rounding out this set is Paul Diamond with a post-graduate course in thumb tip work with finesses that will vastly improve your own handling of this marvelous tool.
Dont be misled by those who dismiss the thumb tip as old school. There are a dozen performers and 14 performances and explanations here that provide conclusive evidence that theres still a lot of magical life left in this wonderful utility gimmick.

Not only will you get to see how everything looks in performance, youll also learn the real inside work, the fine points and psychology of metal bending. These are secrets which have have been very tightly guarded...until now.
"This is the best metal-bending tape Ive seen. It deals with the psychological touches and misdirection needed to make this effect really work. Too many performers approach it as a magic trick and look for novelties and clever gaffsbut this is the real stuff, discussed and considered in rewarding detail. Certainly of immense interest to the professional as well as the novice. Excellent work, and congratulations." - Derren Brown
