"The spirits are an age-old theme, a story from darkest history, and therefore a presentational anchor that can be used with many different magic tricks." - Eugene Burger
New Limited Edition [Harry Anderson/Gordon Bean/Lary Jennings]
Back in 1995, Gordon Bean released Limited Edition in conjunction with Larry Jennings. Spurred by a prime-time performance by Harry Anderson, it quickly became a best-seller. Eugene Burger and Dr. John Hamman were among those who worked out their own versions, and the effect went on to become a modern classic. After the spectator thinks of one card among six, that card alone goes blank! Noticing that occasionally some spectators would ask if he could bring their card back, Gordon went to work on a new version to make this possible. Until now a closely guarded secret, the end result is nothing less than a miracle: A spectator thinks of one card among six, and is asked to mentally tear a corner off the card, then make the rest of their mind blank. Without the selection being revealed, the cards are spread face down, and one card is seen to be missing its corner! When the faces are shown, the spectator confirms that the card missing its corner is what remains of their card. For the climax, the spectator mentally sends the torn corner back to the box, where it makes a magical appearance! Still completely Self-Working, the New Limited Edition contains the original cards and routine, along with the extra cards necessary for the new climax. All of the cards were specially printed by the U.S. Playing Card Company on Bicycle stock and no refills are needed. As a bonus a card is included for another addition to the original effect - before going blank, the back of the mental selection starts to visually fade away! The new instructions also include Eugene Burger's description of his routine for the original Limited Edition, as well as ideas from Max Maven for both the original and new versions of the effect. New Limited Edition comes complete with all the necessary cards on Bicycle stock and 10 pages of fully-illustrated instructions. Please Note: The older trick called "Limited Edition is no longer available, however the old routine can be performed with the new version.
