A David De-Val exclusive release


David De-Val's pocket trick with Houdini cards and a padlock

It’s a close up effect where the performer displays three cards about the size of normal playing cards. Two depict a very solid looked jail cell, the other a full colour photograph of Houdini himself, stripped, shackled and chained ready to perform one of his world famous jail cell escapes before your very eyes.

Each card has a punched hole at the bottom  where a padlock is inserted to secure the three cards. Then suddenly the Houdini card mysteriously escapes the padlock but how!!!

 

A remarkable item! The cell pictures were illustrated by Mavis Newby and the colour picture Card was from De-val. You can see the same picture in his Houdini postcards.

Sold for £8-50 in 1998
