Long Cards



A card revelation is pulled from your pocket to reveal the spectator’s chosen card.  However, it’s the right suit but not the correct value.  For example, the spectator has chosen the Eight of Clubs and the magician reveals the Three of Clubs.  The magician asks, “So your card was bigger?”  After they comply the magician pulls a very long card out of his pocket to reveal the Eight of Clubs that is seemingly stretched out.  This card gag revelation never fells to get gasps and laughs.

The only other Long Cards available are plastic and do not look like playing card material.  They also scratch easily and crack.  I love the gag but was not happy with the look of the prop which means I dropped it from my act years ago.  So I created three different versions:

– One with a standard playing card back on it.

-One that is double-sided with two different revelations so the effect can be immediately repeated if need be.

-Thirdly, one with a solid black back.  The black back was created with two intentions.  If there is backlight then the audience will not see a bleed through image, and it’s black on the back to match the inside lining of my jacket.  If someone close-up gets a peek inside my jacket, the black on black is camouflage, and the surprise of an appearing long card will not be spoiled.

Each card measures 9 x 2.5″.  It’s printed on a thick white stock so that card looks more realistic and is not flimsy.  Lastly, it’s coated with a laminate spray to give it durability.  However, it’s wise to keep the long card(s) in their envelope package to protect them when not in use, just like you’d keep your deck of cards in a box when not using them.  They are $10 each or all 3 for $25.  This is a classic for a reason.  If you can force a card, then you’re guaranteed to get big reactions with DJT’s Long Card.
