Johnny Thompsons Nemo 1500 from his personal close up collection

Winning Bid: $280.00

This was part of the Johnny Thompson sale with Potter and Potter. You can see it pictured in the catalogue.  It was part of Lot 494 in the Saturday, May 2 2020 sale.

It is Johnny’s signature trick Nemo 1500. He made a living out of performing this at trade shows.  It is an amazing effect.  If you do not know I will list the description below.

I do not know if Johnny performed this or not but I do know he had handled it.  I know because this is not the original deck that came with this ( a newer) version of the effect. The new version came with a small stack within the deck that you had to hit. Johnny performed the deck without that worry by using the entire deck so it does not matter where the spectator actually stopped. No worries and never a miss.  The deck that was with this effect has been completely gimmicked likely by Johnny.  It is ready to go just as he would have performed it.

We are including one of Johnny’s trade show giveaways with this auction.

Estimate $200-300

Created by one of magic’s top professionals for trade show work, private parties and any close-up venue! If you’ve seen Johnny perform this miracle, you fully understand the huge impact you receive, when a spectator’s freely chosen card is, beforehand, predicted and a $20.00 bill or a $100.00 bill is offered to the spectator IF the prediction is wrong! Of course, it is NOT wrong and the performer comes out on top each time. The spectator takes the deck of blue-backed cards and deals them down one at a time onto the table until they decide to stop. It is their decision alone! It is a completely free choice! The performer shows a small wallet which has a $100 bill and one face down red-backed card inside. To win the money, all the spectator has to do is to select any of the 51 cards that do not match the red-backed card in the wallet. When the card in the wallet is revealed, it matches the card chosen by the spectator…But not only that, when the wallet is turned over, the name of that very chosen card is embossed in gold in the leather.” Oh so clever! Comes complete with everything you need. A professional routine for professionals. No sleights required. The effect works itself and you can spend your time with the entertainment part of the effect.
