This sounds very much like "Sealed Surprise" by George Schindler. I think Pete is right.

This may be why it isn't being marketed yet.

Hi Everyone,

I haven't been able to log on to the Café for awhile so I appologize for not answering some of these questions for all of you.

First, this is my original idea and not the same as George Schindler's. I loved "sealed surprise" but it is not even close in method.

I will be releasing "Signed, Sealed and Delivered" regardless of the outcome of FISM 2006. I will however wait until after the contest.

I have seen a tape from Japan of Cyril Takiama (sp?) doing my effect. I have known him for years and I am disappointed. My version appeared on Japanese TV just a week before as part of the NHK coverage of FISM. It's sad to see a talented performer resorting to this type of behavior. I thought he would have learned after the flack he got over Brett Daniels levitation?

My original version of the effect was with the card in reverse in a different colored deck. I did this variation for some time but it appeared to the audience as a tricky effect as opposed to a time travel effect.

Having the effect take place in the spectators hands and giving them the cards and box as a souvenir is, to me, the perfect scenario.

At the World Magic Seminar I did not tip this effect. I did explain a deck switch that I use and offered several great routines using an Omni Deck and a Blank deck. All of this is discussed in my lecture CD-Rom, BedJumpers.

If you have other questions I will try to help.

I leave on Saturday to rejoin my cruise ship for another year.

Cheers,

Shawn


Thanks to all of you for your interest in my magic.

That is Steve Bewell's ReBoxed. An awesome effect but not even similar to mine. I own Steve's and it is great. So are all of his effect for that matter.

Cheers,

Shawn

Almost finished the Matrix DVD. I came up with so many extra effects I had to spend more time. I have wanted to have the time to do the routines for real people here on the ship to make sure I wasn't just offering "pipe dreams" but real world material.

Thanks for asking ....

MatriXtreme the DVD soon...really
