I think it might be the original where at the end all card are the same face up.

JP Vallarino has a killer "Ultimate Wild Card". Especially if you can find the music that has the "boom" after each reveal.😁

I think Tommy Wonder has one of the best overall presentations. There are other versions with more elegant changes (like Vallarino's), but Wonder's is motivated (a rarity among WC versions) and quite entertaining.

You can see it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvURE6ueeEk

Actually, I think Card Shark bought the rights and sells their version with Phoenix deck with matching gaffs and teaching video.

You could try John Racherbaumer's Wild Card Kit, available as an ebook from Lybrary.com. He discusses lots of variations.

I third that.Hands down my favorite version. Not easy to master but the routine is well thought out....and the music he uses is perfect.

I spent a fair amount of time on this version,and very happy with the results. Artistic Smile

This is another vote for this dvd from Gerry Griffin, who has a little magic shop (featuring magic shows with dinner) in Martinez California. Like ejohn says, there are several variations on the basic plot that come with this dvd. Have fun. (and to refresh the OP'S memory, the basic plot is when several cards are introduced to a 'wild card', they are later changed to that wild card). But....many many variations. Explore them all.). Lynn

Julie, do you recommend Garcia's book? I'm curious how advanced it is -- e. g., what kinds of sleights are required. You may (or may not) remember that I've been studying magiic for a year and a half or so. My double lift is finally coming in, but I have yet to learn any false counts, though I'd like to because I like the idea of performing packet tricks. II tend to like small things (smallest thing of its kind, like tiny pumpkins on Halloween). I've been practicing the small packet double lift for color monte. I have yet to perform much.



Thanks,


Bob

If I am not mistaken - Stand Up Monte is a wild card effect presented as a 3 card monte demonstration.

I would also recommend World's Greatest Magic dvd/download dedicated solely to Wild Card routines.. I know Tommy Wonder has a routine there .. I bought it specifically because of his inclusion..

I really like a derivation of Wild Card by Wesley James called Watch the Wild Ace!
