Mosers miracle monte come to mind. It uses one of the gimmicks, and enda with the ending by (?) Harry Andersson.

You ruin one gaff for each performance but refills are available.

Do a Google search for mosers miracle monte and you will find it.

Thank you very much Mikael.
Nice. Especially I appreciate he is only using one gaff.
I was asking as these might be the most known gaffs.
Best regards

Known as Michael Skinner’s Ultimate 3 Card Monte, written up by Mike Maxwell (1990), this effect in regular sized gaffed playing cards was based on an Eddie Taytelbaum routine called “Find the Ace” found in Dai Vernon’s Ultimate Secrets of Card Magic, compiled by Lewis Ganson (1967). Michael Skinner worked out cleaner handling for using the same Taytelbaum gaffed cards.

That said (so we know what we are talking about) here are some variations from The Magic Nook: a Jumbo Card version - https://www.magicnook.com/WizJ17/wizj17-07.htm

Ace Chaser is Qua-Fiki's variation of "Chase the Ace," usually attributed to Ken Brooke but actually invented by Eddy Taytelbaum in the late 1940's under the name "Find the Ace." https://www.magicnook.com/WizJ21/wizj21-06AceChaser.htm

Qua-Fiki also made a new version of his Ace Chaser that uses gimmicks to allow the cards to be shown full face: https://www.magicnook.com/WIZJ33/wizj33-05NewAceChaser.htm

Thnak you very much for the info. Very interesting.
I am afraid I am just an amateur so jumbo cards are not my cup of tea.
Best regards

You could probably do some sort of oil and water with a couple of sets of cards-all the displays would be pretty clean.

I purchased the jumbo version from the magic nook many years ago. It works beautifully. Just print out on normal paper, glue it to some cardbord and Bob's your uncle!
I haven't tried the plastic stand or Qua Fikis idea with the envelopes (they are not necessary in my routine) but the info is sound and easy to follow.

Why not make them up with animal pictures (corner pips too) and it would play well for younger kids.

Now that's an idea. I'd better dig up the pdf and go to work...
