You may steal two chosen cards to the top of the deck and load both into the break when out-jogging the packet. When pressure is released, both cards will remain out-jogged, perfectly aligned. Apparently strip the card out and table it face down. Actually, push the face card of the pair back into the deck and table the second chosen card. Ask for the identity of the second card and apparently change the first selection to the second.
I like to work this as a sucker effect following an effect in which the Joker is used. The Joker is simply dropped on top of the pack at the conclusion of the previous trick and, thus, appears instead of the selected card. I ask the spectator holding the packet to give me the selected card so I can do something else with it as I apparently strip the Joker out of the deck and toss it on the table. Of course, the selected card is not to be found in the packet or in the deck. When the Joker is found, we all know where to look for the selection. This is excellent for those situations where you are asked, "Show that 'Card Cannonball Trick' to Fred, he'll love it!"
