The Real Mans Wallet- Card to Wallet should be a staple in any walkaround performer’s repertoire. It’s one of the strongest things you can do with a signed card and always gets a strong reaction.
The problem? Almost all of the gimmicked wallets available look like crap.
However, we surveyed some of the top performing close-up magicians we know and asked them what Card to Wallet they used the most. It was no surprise to us that the majority of performers used Steve Draun’s Real Man’s Wallet.
Unlike most gimmicked wallets, this one looks pretty normal. It isn’t stupidly big and isn’t made from cheap leather. It’s the kind of wallet that you would use every day (and many of our friends do just that), yet has a secret gimmick that allows you to perform one of the most impossible effects in card magic.
Fobulous by Steve Shifton-
How would it be possible for two carefully examined, common objects to switch places in the SPECTATOR’S HANDS?
Especially after having examined the performer’s hands as well!
Perform this pocket-sized miracle, and you can be certain the results will be Fobulous!
Effect: The spectator examines both of two key fobs and finds them to be exactly as they in fact are: common and ordinary in every way. The two fobs are of different design, so it is easy to tell them apart. The spectator retains the fobs as she examines your hands, and finds them to also be exactly as they are: empty.
The fobs are now positioned, one in each of the participant’s hands. She clasps her hands tightly around them – yet with a gesture and snap of your fingers, they trade places. Yes! They trade places! How does the spectator react to the transposition that has just taken place as she is holding the fobs? Most often, the spectator screams or yells!
All can be examined again, including your hands, and on to the next demonstration as it instantly resets. Bold, visual, tactile and astonishing, yet surprisingly simple!
This wonderful effect ticks every box:
- Not cards or coins
- Common objects almost everyone has in one form or another
- Can be thoroughly examined before, during and after
- Performer’s hands can be examined too
- Magic happens in the spectator’s hands
- Instant reset
- Perfect for walk-around and restaurant work
- Can be performed surrounded
- Easy to do
- No pocket work
- No shells
- No clothing requirements
- High quality, attractive props
- Built to last
- Stunning! You will make the participant scream!
Fobulous is the PERFECT type of effect all professionals look for. It is a real WORKER in any environment. Whether you are working at a table, doing walk around, trade shows or even platform magic, here is an effect that will deliver satisfaction in performance every time. Clever, deceptive and audience pleasing, the well-made props are built to last. This one is not going in the “drawer!” It is professional magic you will use over and over again for years to come. Using no more pocket space than your keys, because you can use the prop with your own keys! You will truly never leave home without it!
There are few effects you can feel so comfortable to leave to such close scrutiny in your spectator’s hands, but there is truly nothing to find! The stunned reaction you get will make you smile each time – that is, if you enjoy being devious and deceptive…
Fobulous comes ready to perform, with two specially designed key fobs, the personally hand-made and tested “special something,” and even two key blanks to use for practice and performance. The special “gimmick” employed was carefully designed and each one is hand made and tested, to assure a perfect execution, each and every time you perform this bewildering effect.
I literally searched the world over to find the absolutely perfect key fobs. And, as you know, these are not inexpensive no matter where you find them. The fobs I had manufactured were custom designed and precision made, with the closest attention paid to every detail – you will receive the perfect, high quality fobs.
An informative and equally high-quality booklet teaches you every subtle aspect of performing this simple effect with maximum impact. Full color photos are included to lead you step-by-step, to make learning and performing this effect as simple as possible. As you are sure to see, Fobulous lends itself perfectly to every performance style, and every type of presentation you could create! It will fit you and your environment no matter where you are, and the props will be a proud addition, worthy of your top-drawer clients, yet playable to anyone who understands these very basic “belongings.”
Finally, it is all carefully packaged in a jewelry-style box, with the utmost care and consideration going into every aspect, not to mention love!
