Effect: A racquetball is tossed into the audience to select a volunteer with a valuable finger ring. After racquetball is returned to magician, it is vanished. Magician comments that volunteer’s ring is filthy, and offers to clean it with a “jeweler’s hammer” to knock off the dirt. Ring is smashed to bits.
Throughout the routine, a beautiful cherry wood box has been sitting onstage. It contains a “lovely parting gift.” Opening the box, an inner box/cage is seen inside. The volunteer opens the cage, and removes another, smaller wooden box, covered in elastic bands. Upon opening the smallest cherry wood box, the volunteer finds what she lost only a few minutes earlier � the racquetball used to bring her onstage!
The volunteer picks up an ordinary knife from the table and hands it to the magician. He saws the racquetball in half. Inside the ball is the spectator’s ring, which she takes back to her seat, along with both halves of the racquetball. The volunteer, and the magician, humbly accept their enthusiastic applause.
