World's Greatest Magic - MacDonald's Aces
DVD or download by Various ($11.40 - normally $19.95)
There are many who would argue that the Ace assembly trick that has come to be known as MacDonald's Aces is the strongest card trick you can do for a layman. Though you may have a different opinion, you just may be tempted to change your mind after witnessing the six world-class performances on this volume.

Leading off, Michael Ammar presents an easy-to-master, yet extremely effective, version of MacDonald's Aces, while Johnny Thompson offers a take that intimately involves the spectators. John Mendoza is next with the approach of a classicist, while Alexander de Cova embellishes his interpretation with an amazing - and amazingly simple - four Ace production. Rising card star John Guastaferro offers up two versions. The first features complete vanishes of the Aces rather than a transposition and also supplies a strong presentational hook, while the second is the perfect solution for performing this extremely strong card effect for a much larger audience. Lastly, Martin Nash dons his "Charming Cheat" persona and removes the Aces one at a time right from under a spectator's hand.
Once again, MacDonald's Aces is one of card magic's rare feats - a genuine jaw-dropping miracle - and on this volume, you'll find seven of the finest treatises ever created.
Please note: the gimmicks are only included with the DVD and not with the download.
