The spectator peeks at a card. It immediately vanishes from the deck and is found in the magician's wallet.
The magician gathers up the cards and asks the spectator to peek at another card.
Again it immediately vanishes from the deck. The spectator picks up and opens the magician's wallet, inside is the selected card.
Hen Fetsch's 'Wallet Wallop' plays pretty much the way it reads. The handling is very straight forward. The cards are over hand shuffled until the spectator says stop, at which point the deck is cut, the top stock placed on the table, the magician lifting the top card of the bottom stock so the spectator can get a peek at it. The wallet is a simple leather ID wallet with a transparent compartment on each side. The cards are plainly seen in the wallet.
In fact the spectator can open the wallet each time and remove the card, although in the routine supplied the magician removes the card the first time, the spectator doing so the second time.
Hen Fetsch was something of a magical phenomenon during his lifetime, producing a significant body of work, much of which showed a deep appreciation for the integration of prop, gimmick and routine
|At the same time, Fetsch had a talent for maintaining simplicity of
presentation. Many contemporary magic creators could learn a thing or two from
Fetsch who generally avoided using a routine to disguise the inherent weakness
of a bad idea.
Wallet Wallop is an easy routine for the spectator to follow and the magician to work. Two innocuous gaffs are used, there is one action between the first and second revelation that must be done smoothly, overall the handling is remarkably straight forward making Wallet Wallop very performable.
Wallet Wallop comes with an attractive ID wallet in soft black leather, the necessary gaffs and detailed instructions which explain method, setup, presentation, handling and some of Fetsch's variations for use once the effect is mastered.
Fetsch takes a different approach to the card in wallet, eliminating much of the rigamarole by the simple expedient of having the effect happen twice in a row. Those looking for high impact and low maintenance should consider this well produced effect from Elmwood Magic.

The spectator examines a dictionary containing thousands of words plus a pair of un-gaffed dice. A word will be chosen by chance. The spectator rolls the dice to get a set of random numbers. Adding the numbers will give us page 5 and 4 will make it 54 or 45 or whatever the spectator wants it to be or rolls the dice again. The book is opened to that page and the first word is chosen. The magician either predicts the word or "reads the spectator's mind" to divine the chosen word . This is a book test that can be carried in your pocket, Book is real. We supply a book, pad and dice so there is nothing more to add than the showmanship. Price: $20.00
