The only props you need to perform this outstanding effect are twenty-five (25) blank cards. I usually purchase mine from a printer. They are referred to as Campaign Cards, have rounded corners and measure 3-5/8" x 2-3/16". However, any blank white cards will do, including blank (both sides) playing cards. To prepare, hold the cards HORIZONTALLY and write the names HARRY BLACKSTONE...HARRY HOUDINI...and HOWARD THURSTON across three of the cards. One name to each card. Try to make the handwriting on each look different...as if written by three different people. Use a BLACK felt tipped marker to sign the cards. That's all the advance preparation required except for stacking the packet of 25 cards. To do so, simply place the BLACKSTONE card (name side down) seventh from the top of the pack. Place the HOUDINI card (name side down) twelfth from the top of the pack. Finally, place the THURSTON card (name side down) eighteenth from the top of the pack. Now, put a light pencil mark anywhere on the top card of the pack to prevent accidentally holding the packet, wrong side up. Snap a rubber band around the pack and you're all set to go. If you decide to embellish the sEance bit, have a lit candle in the center of the table. You'll also need a red felt tipped marker in your inside jacket pocket.
