You say, "I would like you to think of any playing card you like — not necessarily the first one to come to mind, any card — and I will name it!"
A card is thought of by your victim — "Have you done that? — I name your card FRED!" you say, and depending on the reaction to this you ask gently whtit it is and continue by spreading the cards you hold face up disclosing an envelope with the words FRED'S CARD written on it.
Turning the pack and the envelope over you show that there is a card in the envelope which has a different colour back to the rest of the pack and it is the card that has just been named!
The mechanics for this effect already exist in Pabular Volume 4 Number 1 pages 460-464, Sept. 1977. All I have done is written FRED'S name on the envelope! Of course you can write the name of your favourite innovator too!
