Under Wraps by Mark Mason
"I set myself a task last year, to make a changing card case that is fully examinable, with no switch etc. It had to be the same box that changed. After many methods and many hours of development work, 'Under Wraps' is my final answer." -Mark Mason
Show a card case to the audience; under the cellophane, on the card case, there is a face down card and a face up 3 of Diamonds. You explain the reason for the 3 of Diamonds being on every box, is that this is the card that most spectators select.
A regular deck is removed from the box and the joker is given to the spectator. They slide the joker into the deck, anywhere they like. The card next to the joker will be the selected card. This will be the 3 of Diamonds and will prove why there is a picture of it on the box.
The selected card is revealed ---- it's the 10 of Hearts. They picked the wrong card. The deck is shown, the cards are still in new deck order, the only one missing is the 10 of Hearts. You now instruct the spectator to flip over the box. The card UNDER THE CELLOPHANE is now the 10 OF HEARTS, matching their chosen card.
This is a great piece of close up magic, it resets in seconds, is so easy to do, it's great.
You could actually give the box to the spectator as a souvenir. The deck can be used as your regular deck for any other tricks you love to do.
