Hey everybody!

I see a lot of impressing torn and restord cards out there, like when the card is ripped up into four pieces and then get restored piece by piece..
Im very curious where to come across different handlings and explanations to this effect. Anyone? :)

Guy Hollingsworth's The Reformation does exactly what you are asking for. The card is signed as well.

Also Daniel Garcia's Torn does this. It only shows the back during the restoration, but the back is signed.

One more vote for Torched and Restored by Brent Braun. Easy and practical.

I also vote for Torched and Restored. I use it in my show all the time now and gets a great response.

Man, I have to say, I love, love love Hollingsworth's torn and restored. But my go to is always Cardboard Contortionist by Jay Sankey. Ungimmicked, can be performed naked, any cards, signed or not.
The sleight, honestly, took me months before I was comfortable performing it. It's not hard but you need to be rock solid.
Definitely worth the investment of time.

Maybe your discomfort was due to being naked.

Good one there..

I feel like Cardboard contortionists is one that has been lost over time, and is very underrated. Sankey did this on TV on one of those magic specials years ago, and I remember getting it on an old VHS tape. Once you've got it down, it's very bold, and you can do it right under the spectators nose. It's very good.

I like John Lovick’s “Reperation.” Card is signed, you tear it up and restore it piece by piece. Not difficult to to, but does require practice to be good at it

Penguin will run specials on it...seen it as low as $4.95 in cool box special

Lovick's Reparation is also in one of the Regal books too. Among a lot of other great material.
