SOLD! Out Of Body Larry White
Out of Body EFFECT: Take out and display a deck of normal cards cutting and shuffling as you like. Turn them face up to show them being all ordinary and different, as you cut and mix also. Tell them that in a moment that you will turn your back and while your back is turned that you will want someone to cut the cards like this (you demonstrate by giving the cards a straight cut and by repeating it. You now choose a person, and have them cut the cards for you as you've just shown them, so you know for certain that they will do it correctly. That done, turn your back to the person, tell them to cut the cards as they did before. Now have them take the top card, and look at it. Once this is done have them hide the card, like between their hands, or perhaps in a shirt pocket. That being done you turn around explaining what has just happened. Now pick up the deck and put it in it's case (while keeping the deck face down the whole time) as you do so. Pocket the deck. Now slowly read the mind of the spectator. Once that’s done take back their card and put it back it it's case along with the others as you are now done.
