A modern and stylized approach to a classic effect in card magic. Two cards are selected and lost in the deck. As the four aces are magically produced, the selections mysteriously appear between them. This is as visual as it gets!

Customer reviews for Collectors


This effect is a great opener for tricks that use four aces or an ending for any sandwich routine. It's easy to learn too. Once you watch the tutorial, you will be able to do it in a day with little practice as everything is covered clearly.



I just love this trick. It not only finds the selections, but produces the four Aces. I love to do this trick for groups of people. It's so easy and visual and I just love that.



Collectors is a simple trick but it's also a great trick for your audience! I've used Collectors for about one year now and always deceive people who see it.



If you like collectors you will love this. If you always liked the collectors plot but never found one that fits you personality, this might be the one for you. This is not for beginners and you do have to have some knowledge of cardistry but if you are intermediate or advanced this wont take long to learn.



This not some sort of grand-stage, 5 minute whopper of a trick that will leave your audience unsure of their mental state, but this trick has for certain an elegant appeal. It serves more as a proof of skill than a devious sleighful effect.

Now what I like about this trick is first of all the involvement of the spectators (two max.) because they make the selections. Secondly, the modern, even futuristic production of the four aces has great appeal and it even serves a purpose by finding the selections. Finally, I find that this is a great opener because it lets you have the four aces at your disposition so you can secretely arrange them for a trick like Deja-Vu, or you can openely go for Encore (taught on Andthensome) or the Queens (in this case the Aces).

So I recommend this openly without any backthoughts. The method is clever and trust me that you will not figure it out (I tried but never fully understood where the aces were popping out from). So get it now, the price is fair, the teaching is excellent.

Oh and by the way, you'll learn the top shot by Lennart Green of which I can't seem to find a decent tutorial on the net. So, it's even more worth it.



Collectors belongs to that kind of effects that you can learn quickly and master within a few minutes of practice, if you are not an absolute beginner. It's quick, visual, and leaves your audience baffled. You can add it to your repertoire as a great opening effect!
