Finally available again! A playing card miracle done with just one hand.
"I have not been this fooled ever." Jon Armstrong
Produced and popularized by Card Shark, "Get Sharky" by Christopher Borer is an award-winning effect that allows a named card to disappear from a deck of cards and appear in your pocket. It has been a perennial besteller for over 10 years. It's long been unavailable, but is finally available again in both red and blue Phoenix decks with standard faces.
"Get Sharky" is in the arsenal of many professional magicians. The simplicity and safety of the method makes it a no-brainer. It's truly brilliant and has been performed around the world and on numerous television performances.
Here is how the core routine goes:
The magician offers to show a card magic trick that requires only one hand. They reach their hand into their pocket and then hold up a deck of playing cards in their other hand. The spectator is instructed to peek at a card.
With no suspicious moves or awkward moments, the deck of cards is casually handed to the spectator to handle freely. The magician then snaps their fingers and invites the spectator find their card in the deck. But they are unable to do so. They can even deal the cards to the table one at a time if they want. Their chosen card has vanished.
The magician then slowly removes their hand from their pocket to show they are holding the selected card.
"Get Sharky" is a true miracle-level effect that can be immediately repeated with a different outcome. It is practical enough for close up magic or street magic, while also being playing big enough for stage magic or parlor magic.
This super fair and clean effect is quite easy to perform. The special "Get Sharky" deck takes care of the hard work for you and can be freely handled by the spectator. You'll receive everything you need to start performing right away!
