Where can one obtain those eye chart cards...or just a DIY thing ? It IS a funny ending I admit. Would love to experiment with it.

Someone had a few of them for sale awhile back. He also had a reserve of Color Monte. I check my pm's but couldn't find my pm's to him...... I want to say it was docbarnes for some reason but I could be wrong.

I can answer you... it’s ‘Eye Exam’ by Danny Archer, a real favourite of mine. A few dealers should have it as may Danny Archer himself. I often don’t do the final phase (selected card reveal). I often just stop where the cards have all turned into eye charts, especially if I don’t have much time. Danny himself demos another phase with a joke eyeball as well.

Eye Exam is definitely a good one. I really like the old Magic Geek Chris Ballinger patter for this. When it comes to fun packet tricks that aren't really about the cards, one of my new favorite is a version of Richard Sanders Stickman 4.

Eight ball by Emerson/West.

Nick Trost's "Bigfoot" uses a similar method, and I've had a lot of fun with it.

BTW, a lot of the suggestions in this thread seem to ignore the criteria given by the original poster: "these cannot be tricks involving poker or bridge type cards (No Ace through King tricks)."

I think my favorite is The Homing Card as performed by Fred Kaps.

It's been said already, but it looks like it needs to be said again:

In other words, the intent of this thread is to ONLY deal with packet effects with completely non-standard cards.

Effects using playing cards with pictures of monkeys or rabbits or birthday cakes ARE eligible.
Effects using playing cards with hearts/diamonds/spades/clubs (gimmicked or not) are NOT eligible.

The thing with Homing Card is you can use your monkeys, rabbits, or birthday cakes on cards. If you wanted to, you could use MtG cards or Pokémon cards. If you so desired, you could use pictures of celebrities. It is not an effect that lends itself to only poker or bridge type cards with the pips and royals.
If my thoughts of this being a packet effect that could lend itself to your criteria has offended you, I am sorry, it was not my intention.
