RISING CARDS – JUMBO as performed at 4th of July Festival in Redwood City, CA.

3 spectators command their card to rise up from the card box suspended from ribbon

The Rising Cards is a true classic of magic. You have three cards selected. Bring out a card box tied in the center of a long ribbon. The deck is shuffled and placed in the box. Your helper holds one end of the ribbon while you hold the other end. Each spectator is told to command their card to rise, speaking as if the cards are properly trained. Plenty of opportunity for comedy patter, or play it straight forward.

I first started building these in 1997 and sold hundreds to two magic dealers. Back in 2020, I came up with a new and improved design that works like a charm. The operation is smooth as silk.  Now you can own a classic of magic. Please note: this is NOT a Hathaway rising card system and thus I do not call it that. This is a new idea first created by Jim Steinmeyer in Conjuring Anthology. With kind permission from Jim, I am now offering them to you and with many options.
