Johann Nepomuk Hofzinser is the father of card magic. His magic has inspired countless magicians spanning nearly two centuries. One of his pet effects a simple, yet amazingly effective color change of a playing card. A card is held up to a light so that you can see through the card, seeing its identity. When the card is turned over, the card is completely different! It is just as baffling for laymen today as it was in the 1840’s.

Somethings a miss with the quality control at Hanrahan Gaff Company. Dreadful quality slipped past World Magic Shop too. Of course this will have a detrimental effect on these company's sales long run cutting corners always does.
