For me, it was a trick with the aces where you put them in different piles, cut a few times, and they appear in one stack. I'm not sure what it's called...I just call it the 4 Aces. I still use that trick...and it gets a lot of people suprisingly.

Deland's 2 Card Monte which was in a magic set I received as a child on Christmas many moons ago in the last millenium...

A jumbo card trick similar to "FOOLED/FOOLED AGAIN" from a Christmas present magic set I received in the 1950s.

First store bought card trick: A Svengali Deck......I still have it 50+ years later.

Do As I Do ...

And I still do it, albeit modified to delay the punch thus making it harder. As much as the principle behind this effect has been abused and exposed, somehow, it STILL amazes.

Ahimsa,
Vlad

Sometimes we'd do it over and over again just to watch it come out right... Man, I was a dumb kid.

The first trick I ever learned was doing a Triumph of sorts, except the move was done behind your back, and there was no "mixing" of the cards, so it was really easy, lol.

Do as I Do.

It was also the first card trick that I was able to adapt to my style of speaking.
In my own very unschooled and naive way, I "made it my own" all those many years ago.

And in such seemingly innocent moments, a life-time of passion is born.

I'm not even sure my first card trick has a name.. or was even a card trick. Someone picked a card.. then the magician put the cards behind his back, and flipped over the bottom card, and rotated the deck. The spec put the card back, magician went behind his back and returned it to normal.. to show he found the spectators card behind his back and turned it face up in the deck o.O

Mine was Sam the Bellhop and Reformation. I started the wrong way and had to work backwards to the simpler stuff. But that's ok, I guess. It was like running with weights on.

Keep running.
We have all prematurely embraced foolhardy yet utterly worthy challenges like these!
Onwards, MrBadGuy!

Cheers, panlives! This was years and years ago. So I'm all caught up now, haha. But yeah, I was the kid who could perform Sam and Reformation flawlessly but you could still have fooled me with a DL or a stripper deck at that time. Good times!

My Uncle taught me my first trick which had something in it where the spec got to pick whether the magician would slap, chop or pound his chosen card through the table. When asking the question the demonstration of the slap was used to secretly put another on top of the chosen.

That's funny nlokers. My Grade 11 Chemistry teacher did the same effect and we all had no clue.

My oldest brother showed me a trick that involved the Plunger Principle. I still remember it to this day (but do not perform it)

Man, did nobody else learn the Key Card trick as a child? That's one of the first tricks I learnt, and I quickly developed it into a number of different reveals to hide the fact that I was constantly using the same method to perform "different tricks". From putting three cards into three piles and Magician Forcing their selected card on them, to flipping the key card and spreading it so that it would count backwards to their selected card, and so on.

Mine was either this one, or the one where one thumbed through the deck asking the spectator to say "when" to stop and show the card at the break, then controlling the card (badly) to the bottom of the deck. The thumbing through the deck was repeated and when the spectator said to stop again the bottom card was pulled with the top packet to reveal that they had stopped at the same card.
