i dont think he knows how he does it (even thought he has said he is not a card guy)
but he is got to pretend he does to mantain his ¨magic mantra¨

another solution..
(im not saying that´s how he does it but it could work)
just put a little bea wax in your nail when you put it back smear the wax in the card.. that way you mark it..
there´s plenty of solutions for this card trick

why do you want to know?
do you wanna perform the trick or is it just curiosity?
sometimes the sense of wonder is way better..

Winston,
Craig's right, there's no need to discuss how card tricks are done. I used to dabble with cards myself and although I know most of the methods involved that doesn't mean some pieces of magic can be replicated by even the best. Case in point - the greatest card magician alive is Ricky Jay (at least in my humble opinion.)
Watch this short video of the master of card manipulation doing one of his best (search youtube for "Ricky Jay" for more if you'd like)

Okay, I'm going back into hiding now... :-)

derrida I've used a wide range of blindfold systems including one that is based more on what the great Kuddha Bux did vs. Glenn's various masks... though I did speak with Frances at one point, about the style Glenn was using in his latter years... he will certainly be missed. :(

Now days I believe that less is more; there are too many half-wit magicians that THINK they are "Mentalists" running around with steel masks, duct tape and a wide variety of other extremes to prove, beyond a shadow of doubt, that they cannot possibly see a thing. Psychic's on the other hand, just pick up a couple of napkins or handkerchiefs and make up a blindfold on the spot... some just have a person behind them with their hands over the his/her eyes... simple & direct makes things far more valid in the mind of the laity; when you start proving everything to be perfect, ungimmicked, etc. you are proving that a trick is involved... or so says the reason of experience. ;)

... and it's not fair, placing footage of two card gods in the thread vs. an aspiring wannabe :lol:

you are right
i never understood the osterlind metal blindfold..
screams gimmick to me..
coicidently.. in the lennart green clip.. he puts own a blindfold in the end of the routine.. with aluminum paper and tape.. is hilarious and deceptive... he tip off the method on the EMC, not sure if you bought it.. but it was pretty cool

Yes, yes, Lennart is quite a master himself.
Bottom line point I'd like to make is to watch and appreciate their talents as an artist. One doesn't need to try to figure out how it's done, just appreciate the beauty in the performance if you can.
