Topic: Effects in your wallet
Message: Posted by: elimagic (Nov 13, 2013 04:12PM)
Just curious as to what effects at a gig or just casually you all cary in your wallet(magic or regular wallet)?

I personally carry business cards (for billets), extended stay, extreme burn, and powerball 60.

How about you all?

The only thing I carry in my wallet is Greedy by Daniel Garcia. Also, my Card to wallet IS my every day wallet and I never leave the house without a deck and a sharpie.

Don't have much. A double backer, $5 to $500, a packet of cards for a quick Kiss Trick in the mouth transpo, business cards. This is in my everyday wallet.

I think this is the route I'm going to have, I'm going to switch over all my stuff into my Real Man's wallet so I can have an all in one.

I have yet to make a "Greed" gimmick, it's one of those things I've just overlooked. I've had the DVD sitting in my car for about a year now.

I use my normal tri-fold wallet and I carry business cards, a paper clip, Extreme burn, Dollar to credit card(This is an absolute must in my opinion. It's visual and it gets amazing reactions), A bill through bill effect, a tiny bit of flash paper, and some sticky notes for a prediction trick that I came up with. Basically all of this stuff takes up very little space in my wallet but it allows me to do a lot of amazing things. I pretty much have an entire routine in my wallet which I carry with me everywhere I go.

I love this thread! I maintain an ever growing list of effects to keep in my wallet, should I ever be without cards or coins. With that being said,some of the things I currently carry do need a deck of cards at minimum handy.

My current wallet contains:

- Pocket Space Plus by Anthony Miller
- Magicard by Mark Jerset (MagicSmith)
- Big Four Poker by Tom Droblowski
- Wallet Size Insurance Policy by MagicMakers
- Business Card Trick from 24/7 Wallet by Magic Apple
- 1089 photograph from 24/7 Wallet by Magic Apple
- Time Stands Still by Jeff Peace (which I go back and forth switching out with In Your Wallet, also by Jeff Peace)

In the past years, I've had any of the 3 "Wallet Wonder Series" by Josh Jay (Vegas Visit,Extra Credit, and Transporter) plus various card to wallets over the years as well. Now I usually keep a D'b'er for that purpose. I'd count fire wallets as well. There are many, many other effects out there that can be kept in your wallet.

Someday, I hope to have a whole act I keep in my wallet.

I carry nothing. I don't want to be a magician outside of doing it professionally, nor do I want anyone thinking that I'm a guy that carries around tricks.

Any time I do impromptu magic, I do it with impromptu items.

I'm not saying it's the best way or the correct way. It's just what I decided was best for me.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned here is Torn Corner Machine (1.0 or 2.0) by Juan Pablo Ibañez ($35.00). This is a gimmick that I use on my business cards that I carry inside my wallet. It allows for a "mother of all" torn corner routine in which there is no switch of the corner, it really is burned, and is really found in an impossible location. You can virtually make infinite gimmicks with the TCM or TCE. I usually (if I can't place the piece anywhere beforehand), have it appear inside an "empty" napkin someone has been holding onto the entire time.

I don't do it, but I'd eventually like to have a photograph using one of those "my grandfather always knew which card you'd pick" type of effects, maybe even have a "1089" printed on the back as an encore.

BTW, I had no idea how many people use Powerball 60!

I carry the promystic essential wallet and in it is, “Will to read”, Bwave,wonderland dollar, and a 1950’s silver certificate bill, I use with the turner watch routine, biz cards for peeking or center tear and Peter Turner’ credit card, and last, a second free will prediction that uses 3 borrowed coins. I do have a nice card to wallet that I’ve never used, I don’t do cards and I’m trying to learn how to do a card to wallet, I have several but it looks to me like the easiest is the FPS wallet. Most days I do also have a Sven pad in my back pocket. Like most of you, I have several. And use it constantly.

I have my bank cards and some money.

If someone wants to see some magic they won't mine getting me a pen, some index cards and a deck of cards.

I'm certainly not wasting my own money performing for free.
