I had two of Lee's wallets. Allen Okawa's Eelskin wallets are really better. They take a slightly larger envelope. Lee's required that you use a 6 1/4 envelope. Allen's use a standart #6 envelope.

Thank you Bill. I was not aware of Allen Okawa's wallets. I will try to research them. Are they still available?

I don't know. I got two from Joe Stevens and picked up a used one from someone on the Café.

My favorite card to wallet is the Mark Leveridge card to wallet.

The method is a non-standard no palm card to wallet. So if you have a routine now it might have to be modified. I does come with a useable routine, I would develop my own.

It looks like a big mans wallet. But not so big it looks like a clown prop. ( I have seen some card-to-wallet props that do look like clown props. “And in side this small suitcase… ahh I mean my wallet”) For many years I carried it as my regular wallet.

The card ends up in a zippered compartment, which I think is necessary for full impact.

I have used his wallet for close up and stage since 1991 to great impact.

Thanks Chris,

I really appreciate the response. I am researching everything I can. What is meant by "no-palm" method. I mean, I understand the term, I just don't know how it could be done effectively that way. Can you have a card signed with the no-palm method, or is it a dup? I only know of the "palm" method.

Thanks,

Regan

Hello Regan,
Do a search at the Café for this fabulous no palm signed card to wallet. "The Phantom Of The Wallet"
There is a demo video at Hocus Pocus. I guarantee you will be amazed when you see it!

I don't think you can go wrong with the Mullica wallet. It's a great purchase.

Mister Mystery to answer your questions:
Can you have a card signed with the no-palm method?
Yes. The Mark Leveridge card to wallet and the Mullica wallet both use a no-palm method, as well as some others. If you don’t have the card/bill signed then the effect is totally different, much weaker in my opinion. Also both wallets mentioned in this post have the monkey business done long before reveling the card, this is also very important, as funny business done at the time of the revelation will weaken the effect.

Is it a dup?
No.

What is meant by "no-palm" method.
No-palm means you sneak the card into the wallet with out palming. This can be done in a cleaver way, like in the wallets mentioned in my post, or in not so cleaver ways.

As a side note, both palm and no-palm methods can be done very deceptively. I use the wallet I do because I often work with out a jacket. If you are familiar with palm methods you will see why this would be a problem.

I think you forgot to precede this with IMO. Having used Lee Noble's version of the LePaul Wallet for nearly thirty years and then giving Alan Okawa's a shot when it came out, I still stand by my assessment. Give me a Lee Noble anytime. I recently sold my Okawa wallet to a well-known pro who promptly asked me if he could return it.

The only one that I think comes even close to Lee Noble's is the so-called Larry Jennings Wallet, released by Jeff Busby and Matt Corin in the 70's. Unfortunately, it's not available any more either.

I do think Vernet (of thumbtip fame,) presently makes one which is not too bad and not too pricey. I will end this by taking my own advice. This entire post is completely IMO.
