We just received our first case of Nick Diffatte’s first hardcover book that sold-out at the recent Magic Live convention where he also spoke and performed. Over the past few years, you have read what I think of Nick’s work, and I have offered you some of his releases before anyone else.
I asked Nick to autograph as many books as possible for us, or until he got tired.
Unfortunately, he got tired after ten books. So, the first ten purchasers with get autographed copies (if you prefer an un-autographed copy let me know when ordering).

I just received a healthy supply of Zoltar’s Opener that sold-out within an hour a few weeks ago when I introduced it to you. To read what I wrote about it go: HERE
This is a simple and direct routine that practically works itself.
You begin by showing a deck of cards with a picture of Zoltar the mind reader on the box asking you to think of a card (free choice). As you turn the box it asks you to name your card and then the writing on the other side of the box proclaims that Zoltar knew you were going to think of that card.
To prove Zoltar “the Svengali” knew what you were going to think of, the cards are removed from the deck, the named card is taken out and shown to be the only odd-backed card in the deck.

Another item that sold-out very fast was the larger sizes of the Gambler’s Ring. It is back in stock and if you want to read what I originally wrote about it go: HERE
This is a finger ring made of titanium steel that is brought to a high shine so it can be used as a mirror/shiner to see the cards as they are being dealt off the deck.
It also has a blister built in to use as a card punch so you can peg cards during play or while doing magic. Can also be used to mark, bills, envelopes or any such items.

►Impossible Tear Bills:
Over the years there have been many different formulations of paper that cannot be torn. This is perhaps the best.
You can use them as a gag or for magic tricks using money where you don’t want the paper bills to wear out. The designs of the bills were changed enough to keep you from getting arrested for counterfeiting, but still look like the real thing at a glance.
