I was going through some of my late granddad's magic stuff today. I found some jumbo cards, but no instructions. I'll tell you what I have and perhaps someone can enlighten me as to what I have, or can help me create an effect.

I have one jumbo card sized manilla envelope with a large transparent window, three 7-diamonds, one double face 7-diamonds/ace-clubs, one ace-clubs with a back to match the manilla envelope.

I will put on my thinking cap, but would also like to here what others come up with. Thanks very much.

Matt, I don't remember what it's called but Dan Harlan had an effect at his lecture that sounds similar. Check out his web site if he has one.

I got that trick in a magic set back in the 70's. Take 3 sevens and an ace out of the envelope. The envelope now looks empty. Place the envelope face down on the table. The ace disappears and you show 4 sevens. Pull the ace out of the envelope. I have left out the details but you should be able to figure them out.

Thanks. Thats kind of what I was thinking of, but it didn't make much sense to me where the other 7 comes from. I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to count the four sevens as three. Thanks again. Now to try to make this into something.

The effect is called THE FLYING ACE and it was put out by Reiss Magic in the mid-seventies. I have a copy of the instructions and would be happy to Xerox them for you. Send me a private message with your address, if you are interested.

Hey Matt,
Like the others I bought this trick in the 70s and never used it. Here it is 30 years later and I busted it out and started using it with Dan Harlans routine. It's pretty cool
and you can find it on his new video Packs Small Plays Big.
Good Luck
