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!
