A single card is placed into a wine glass and remains in full view for the entire effect. At no point, you explain, will you go near the glass.

A card is selected and signed. Once it has been thoroughly lost back into the pack (the spectator can shuffle the cards as much as they like), you draw attention back over to the glass.

“Wouldn’t it be remarkable”, you ask, “if that card was a perfect match to the one you selected?”

Of course, the audience agrees, but you continue, “What if I told you that not only is that card a perfect match, but it is in fact the exact card you signed?”

You may have had the audience's interest before, but you now have their UNDIVIDED ATTENTION.

You walk over to the glass, being careful never to obscure the card from view. Slowly and fairly you take it at your fingertips and turn it around. It is the SIGNED CARD!

“Card in Glass” is Ernesto Melero’s revolutionary handling of the Mystery Card plot. Everything is accomplished with sleight of hand. There are no gimmicks or duplicates involved.

You are going to learn an extraordinary card switch which is completely baffling, even to the most knowledgeable magicians. The “Card in Glass” presentation is ideal for parlour situations but as you can see in the trailer, it can also be applied to close-up settings.

The move is not easy but any card magician with a good grounding in basic sleights will have no trouble learning it. The video instructions walk you through the move in excellent detail and Ernesto shares a number of helpful tips which will expedite your learning process.

Running time: 10 minutes 42 seconds.


Customer reviews for Card in Glass



Holy motherforking shirtballs!!! The additional content provided offers an enlightening perspective. When witnessing the attention that Hector Mancha's card in glass has garnered, one can't help but compare it to the mesmerizing routines of Ernesto.

Ernesto displays an uncanny, almost magical prowess in his craft. It's as if he's channeling the skill of a seasoned wizard. Although I haven't personally ventured into trying it, the technique feels surprisingly attainable.



A superb illusion that has only three steps, but requires practice in order to achieve the appearance of a flawless miracle. The video is well shot and shows the exact position of the card, as well as the nuances of the palming technique. Highly recommended.



This is amazing. With a little bit of practise you will be able to preform this very clever and visually impressive change. I love the way the video explains this very clearly step by step. Highly recommended if you are prepared to do some practice







I spent 2 days for this one. I didn't even know there was such a palm technic. So clean! And I'm glad to learn this. Waiting for more tricks from Mr. Ernesto
