"This has been the Finale of my Close-up Shows, and my Encore for Stage, for several years now. It is one of the three best trick I’ve ever come up with in my professional career of 33 years, and I’m releasing it now for the very first time with all the details that make this a miracle for any lay audience – and I’ve fooled some of the smartest and most knowledgeable magical minds with it in my performances at magic conventions around the world." -Roberto Giobbi

When Roberto Giobbi wants to predict someone’s card he doesn’t mess around with convoluted dealing processes or clumsy presentations. He goes directly for the heart of the effect with an incredibly direct and frankly impossible trick. This is the one that will make your audience believe you can see the future. This is The Prophecy by Roberto Giobbi.

Here’s what happens:

The magician shows their audience a wallet. It’s opened, and emptied. It contains a single envelope and nothing else. The envelope is placed back inside the wallet, and then the wallet is handed to the spectator for safekeeping. Then the audience freely selects a card from an imaginary deck. The spectator opens the wallet, and the magician opens the envelope. Inside is the exact prediction of what the audience chose.

The Prophecy is a master class in magic performance. In addition to an incredible instructional video from Roberto Giobbi, you receive the Prophecy wallet. This genuine leather wallet is beautifully constructed and allows you to perform incredibly strong magic. Perfect for close-up, parlor, and stage, this effect will deliver some of the strongest reactions you’ve ever gotten. This is The Prophecy by Roberto Giobbi.

Special thanks for inspiration goes to Kenton Knepper for his Off By One principle used in his effect Kolossal Killer.
