On July 15 and July 30 Meir Yedid finalized the purchase of a major part of Ray and Lisa Piatt’s Magic Makers product line. The line included around 40 different routines which were created by Ray Piatt, Larry Becker, Joseph Dunninger, Mel Eisenberg, Maurice Fogel, Ted Lesley, Roy Miller, Bob Tripp and a few others.
Ray Piatt (pronounced pie-att) retained the rights to, and continues to manufacture his line of leather products, Gypboards and card products.
Ray Piatt has been called, “The Thayer of contemporary apparatus for mentalists,” by Larry Becker. In a 1984 issue of MAGIK, Bascom Jones wrote about Piatt’s products, “With a selected handful of Piatt’s devices and effects, the professional could make a reputation and a fortune.” This may be the first time that these closely held mentalism and magic secrets are made available to a wider magic audience.
The first product re-released under, Meir Yedid Magic, with new instructions and props is the Piatt Envelope which is described below. Already available on the website (www.mymagic.com/piatt.htm) is a limited supply of The Impossible Book Test, Alarmset, and the ESP Testing Tablet. Many of the other items will be added to the site as they are unpacked, assembled and in some cases re-packaged with new instructions. Once the limited inventory of these items is sold they will be taken off the market until they can be re-manufactured.
The Piatt Envelope
A Secret Weapon For Magicians & Mentalists
This is one of the most devious and ordinary looking props a magician and mentalist can use. The concept of multiple outs is a powerful weapon when used in a mental effect. Books have been written on the subject and hundreds of props have been invented to produce the desired results. The Piatt Envelope is among the best and fairest methods ever invented for this purpose.
The envelopes are standard looking coin and invitation envelopes. The handling of the envelopes is direct. There is no fumbling and no extra handling. Just open the flap and dump out the correct prediction. The envelopes are gaffed and are large enough to hold a playing card. They can also be used for multiple outs or even to switch a card or message. There are an unlimited number of uses possible.
Miracles can seemingly be accomplished with this device. Please use it for entertainment purposes and not to convince people you have supernatural powers — unless you do. Then again, you wouldn’t need this if you did, would you?Comes with two specially manufactured and assembled envelopes. One looks like a 4.25 x 2.5 inch Kraft coin envelope and the other a 5.25 x 3.5 inch white invitation envelope. Includes photo-illustrated instructions and ideas for many uses.
Suggested retail price: only US $10.00.
