    Two Vernon Classics & Revisiting the Overhand Lift Shuffle by Gerald Edmundson

    Some aficionados consider Dai Vernon's "Out of Sight-Out of Mind" from More Inner Secrets of Card Magic the best mindreading trick with an ordinary deck of cards. They may be right. Since the spectator does not remove a card from the deck but only thinks of a card, it makes a terrific mindreading trick. Erdnase explores the principle in "A Mindreading Trick" in Expert at the Card Table. Vernon used the principle to construct his trick.

    Gerald keeps the exact effect of Vernon's original trick. In "Only in Your Mind", he uses adaptations of the Overhand Lift Shuffle and constructs a completely different handling of the trick. In keeping with the "Sleight-of-Hand for the Real World" approach, he adapts the sleights and procedures for "real world" performances under demanding conditions. Some handlings of the Lift Shuffle and its uses differ from those described in Royal Road to Card Magic. Gerald includes an explanation of his treatment of the sleight and some of its uses.

    Vernon based his "The Fingerprint Card Trick" on the "Dick Tracy Card Trick" by Clyde F. Cairy from the fine book, My Best. Vernon's patter theme makes the trick hard to resist. Inspired by Vernon's trick, Gerald's friend Lonnie Chevrie had an excellent idea for handing out a souvenir card to a spectator. Using the idea, Gerald worked out his version explained in the "Souvenir Fingerprint Card Trick". It became one of Gerald's favorite card tricks for the laity.
