Offering a safer way to illustrate how Houdini used to escape from shackles and chains, the magician handcuffs a spectator's finger to a deck of cards with a mini pair of handcuffs. The spectator then peeks at any card in the deck. This card INSTANTLY vanishes, having "escaped" from the deck! The spectator may search through the deck himself, to no avail. The card may then be revealed in the spectator's pocket or any other impossible location. Requires no sleight of hand, no table necessary--perform it surrounded. Instantly repeatable, even with different a different card and different location!
