Your Card – Bob Solari

A card is selected. The magician states he has the volunteer’s card in a small wallet.

Then a mirror is removed and held next to the spectator’s card and the magician says, “See I did have your card in the wallet.” But it is just a reflection of the chosen card, another gag.
