The Magician displays seven playing cards, each has a hole near the end. The cards are openly displayed. One of the cards is unusual as it has a different colored face and back. This unusual card is extended from the other cards. A wooden wicket is handed to a spectator and he is instructed to insert it into the hole in the cards. The Magician next asks the spectator to push the unusual card into the pack of cards- And to his surprise, the card seems to penetrate the wicket as if by magic. The cards are now fanned and exhibited, the unusual card seems to be attached, along with the other cards, to the wicket.
