A very popular classic card effect that is long off the market!
Sand Frames just aren't made anymore, and the GOOD vintage ones are really hard to find.
This trick is pretty clever!
First, display this frame.
It looks like a regular frame, but it's empty- the middle part is black.
What happens next depends on how you want to present the routine.
You can have the spectator select a card from a deck, for example.
Briefly place a cloth over the frame, and when the cloth is whisked away---
A DUPLICATE OF THE CHOSEN CARD IS INSIDE THE FRAME!
You can make any flat item appear inside the frame.
A photo, a written message, a ticket stub- whatever you want to make appear.
Of course, the frame does all the work- no skill.
You may need skill to force the card, or force the choice of whatever you are using.
But when it comes to making the item appear, the frame does the work for you.
CONDITION: very good.
Please note that NO HANDKERCHIEF comes with this trick.
You will need a cloth to cover the frame briefly during the routine.
Any cloth that you can't see through will do the trick (pun intended).
