This is the last magical
gem left to us by the great Lubor Fiedler.
credit card with a hole in one of its ends is shown inside a small transparent
plastic holder that also has a hole. The card is blocked in position
by a padlock. The magician removes the padlock, and shows everybody
that, without it, the card can easily slide backwards and forwards inside
the transparent holder.
a spectator is asked to slip the card inside the holder and then to
pull it out. Despite the fact that there is no padlock, mysteriously
the spectator is unable to pull out the card! Only in the hands of the
magician, and without any suspicious moves, the card easily slides in
and out of the holder.
an incredible climax, after having put back the card in the holder,
and having locked it in position with the padlock, the magician performs
an impossible escape… he will in fact be able to magically free
the card from padlock and pull it out of the holder!
Easy to do, but with a really ingenious method!
