The performer displays a small wooden box with a lid on top. He then opens the lid, shows the box entirely empty, and clearly places a prediction (a folded card) inside. The lid is replaced and the box is set in full view on the table. A card is then freely chosen, signed and returned to the deck by a spectator. The performer now offers to find the chosen card without even looking at the cards. After a few failed attempts, he absolutely hopes that at least his prediction is somehow correct. The performer then points to a wooden box that has been in plain sight all along and lifts the lid to clearly show a folded card that was previously put inside. A folded card is now removed by the spectator. Once unfolded, the spectator is amazed to find that the prediction not only matches her freely chosen card but also has her signature that she just signed a moment ago!
The spectator has an absolutely free choice of any card!
The prediction can be removed by the spectator!
The box remains in full view the entire time!
The prediction was indeed placed inside the box before the card was ever even signed!
This exquisite little box can be used with a bank note, a piece of paper or a borrowed & signed coin, etc. There are many routines and variations are possible!
