Product Description

From the creative mind of Shin Lim: THE SWITCH is the cleanest way to switch a folded card for a spectators signed card.

Imagine placing a Mystery card on a table, in someone's hand, in a clear box, well... anywhere. This is done in full view of the audience. You then have a another spectator select a random card and sign it. On your command you cause their sign car to vanish completely from the deck. The spectator is asked to open her hands, the mystery card that the spectators has been holding the entire time is opened. It is the signed selection!

THE SWITCH is the cleanest way to switch a card because there are no boxes, no envelopes, etc. Words cannot describe how clean the switch actually is.
You have to see it to believe it...

A folded “mystery card” is placed on the table. An audience member selects a card and signs it. The selected card is replaced in the deck and the deck is riffled toward the folded card. The folded card is opened and it proves to be the signed selection. The performer’s hands are
otherwise empty.

Shin Lim is a very talented sleight-of-hand performer. The Switch is an exceptionally interesting maneuver wherein a folded card is exchanged for another right in front of everyone’s eyes. In fact, if you watch the video demonstration you will be, I think, quite amazed at what appears to be happening. I suspect that many purchasers will never perform this but instead, will buy it simply to find out how such an amazing thing is accomplished.

So…it is very good and it looks like magic.

There is an old adage in magic that goes, “Every miracle has its price.”

Let me briefly mention a few of the prices here — not to downplay the true cleverness of Shin Lim’s... [Read More]

Review of The Switch By Shin Lim

One DVD, $30 dollars and a DIY gimmick . . . is it gem or is it rubble?


This is an open prediction effect. A folded card is placed openly on the table and covered by the spectator. A card is chosen, signed and lost in the deck. A moment later, the spectator lifts her hand where the magician picks it up (very cleanly) and unfolds it showing that it is the signed card.


This uses a very clever gimmick that you have to build. The gimmick itself is pretty simple, but may take a little bit of work to build (especially if you have a hard time splitting cards). Everything you need to create the gimmick is supplied (except for tape/glue). If you don't have any troubles with card splitting, you'll be able to construct the gimmick in just 2 or 3 minutes.
