From the collection of an amateur magician who took very good care of his props!
This legendary card effect has been off the market for many years.
It is very hard to find- especially in UNOPENED condition.
Plus, this is the ORIGINAL edition, marketed during Bro. Hamman's lifetime, by the man himself.
Brother John Charles Hamman S.M. (September 3, 1927 – December 5, 2000) was a close-up magician and Marianist Brother.
The tricks he invented are still an integral part of many close-up magician's repertoire.
As he recuperated from polio as a child, he spent hours learning, practicing and inventing card tricks and other magic involving sleight-of-hand.
In many cases, he "reinvented" classic maneuvers or streamlined them.
He created more than 100 card magic tricks throughout his career.
He is best known for the Hamman Count, a sleight-of-hand move in which cards are falsely counted to give the impression that the magician holds more, or less, than he actually does.
FINAL ACE ROUTINE was one of the most well-received effects ever brought to market under the Hamman name.
FROM THE INSTRUCTIONS:
This is anot a single 4 Ace trick, but a routine that builds and builds as it progresses until there is absolutely no explanation for the movements of the Aces.
It appears like real magic to magicians and laymen alike.
There are no phony moves as the magician repeats the effect again and again, each time being more open and fair than the last.
At the finish, the spectator is forced to admit that he has seen magic as a real magician would do it- right before his very eyes!
You'll get the set of gaffed Poker size Bicycle cards you need, and the instruction booklet.
The booklet and cards are still sealed in the original envelope.
