The Man Who Knows by Liam Montier, Matt Lingard and Kaymar Magic
A mystifying and fun prediction/mentalism effect that will astound your audience!
First, you bring out an envelope, which is handed to a spectator.
Next, five gorgeous full color mini-postcards are shown, each featuring a classic magician poster. They are all placed into regular envelopes, which are handed to another spectator. They shuffle and freely choose any one of them.
In the meantime, you show a shuffled deck of cards, and deal through them. The chosen envelope is placed into the pack by the spectator at any point. The card next to the envelope is removed.
The spectator's envelope is opened - they chose Alexander, The Man Who Knows!
You have them open the prediction envelope that has been visible from the beginning - and it's an Alexander poster! However, this one is slightly different - it features a crystal ball with a card inside... it's the Four of Clubs!
Turning over the chosen card from the pack, it is of course the Four of Clubs!

You bring out a mysterious red envelope which you leave in full view, and five gorgeous full-color postcards, which show five famous magicians from years gone by - there's Thurston, Kellar, Alexander, Vonarx and Houdini. Each one is in a black envelope, and a spectator freely mixes them together.
You also show a deck of cards (this can be borrowed) and your spectator freely chooses one of the envelopes, and one of the cards from the pack.
'The idea is that we'll do a trick in the style of the magician you chose, using the card you chose! Let's see what you got.'
Your spectator chose 'Alexander' and the Four of Clubs.
'Alexander was a mind-reader, or mentalist. He'd have read your mind, or made a prediction. A bit like this one, in this red envelope...'
You open up the red envelope, and remove an 'Alexander' poster!
'But how he knew your card, not even I could tell you that...'
You unfold the Alexander poster to reveal the Four of Clubs, revealed in the crystal ball!
Package includes the gorgeous postcards, five black envelopes, one red envelope, full-color A4 prediction poster, and two video links - one to the original instructions for the smaller version, and the other for a new video with an alternative handling for the postcard version.
Such a classic in mentalism self working yet brings out huge reactions the envolopes and the card are wonderfully made.
