In the Hands Wild Card Review

Official Review

Tom Dobrowolski (pronounced “Dobrowolski”) has cobbled together an excellent, stand-up, in-the-hands version of Wild Card that makes use of the standard set, available at or through your local dealer (but not included with this DVD). After having a card “freely chosen” from a regular deck, he discards the pack, then reaches into another pocket and brings out his “card collection,” which consists of eight Jokers. The chosen card is brushed against, touched to, or waved over each of these Jokers, causing them to change, one after the other, into eight duplicates of the selection! The spectator is then directed to retrieve his selection, whereupon the remaining eight duplicates instantly revert to Jokers!

Tom’s routine is extremely magical, very visual, and highly interactive, making use of two spectators, one on either side of the magician, who are asked (and required) to hold their hands out like tables as he delivers cards onto their palms after each successive change. The end result is a Wild Card routine that is performed in mid-air, and loses nothing for having been elevated (both literally and figuratively) from the two-dimensional world of tabletops.

It’s a shame this DVD isn’t packaged with a Wild Card set, but regardless, if you do walkaround work, Tom’s routine is well worth your attention.

Manufacturer's Description:

"Have I ever shown you my card collection?"

So begins In The Hands Wild Card, one of the most visual and practical Wild Card Routines ever developed. Tom Dobrowolski has taken this classic routine and raised it off the table and put it into the magician's and spectator's hands making it a great routine for the walk around and table entertainer.

In The Hands Wild Card uses the standard Wild Card set of cards, a set of cards you probably already own or that is available through any magic dealer. This is a routine you will learn and use.

"I've always felt that 'Wild Card' was one of the greatest visual card tricks of all time. My good friend Tom Dobrowolski has made a great contribution to the magical fraternity by creating and sharing his special version that can be performed without the need for a table. I look forward to adding Tom's beautiful routine to my strolling repertoire." - Daryl the Magicians Magician

"Tom's handling of the classic powerhouse 'Wildcard' is totally professional, totally baffling, instantly resets and happens in the performers' and spectators' hands. In my book that's the conditions that make a routine totally professional." - Bob Kohler

"I thoroughly enjoyed the routine." - Bill Malone

"Great job Tom! Very visual and practical. I love that it's in the hands too. I'll be using this one." - Mike Powers

"Beyond belief. You have to teach me that one."
- Marshall Brodien
