A card is selected, signed, then mixed back into the deck. Standing on one side of the window with the spectator, you ask them to push the cards up against the glass and mix them around in a jumble, holding them against the glass.
With the spectator holding the cards on the glass, you walk around to the other side.You pause. You know that the effort you put into showmanship here is going to pay off in a few moments. Confidence is like blood running through your veins.
Full OverviewCreator Sean Beard has happened upon a gem of visual magic that allows you to pull a card through glass with no setup.
You tap on the cold, hard glass to emphasize the impossible nature of what is going to take place. You lower your hands and seemingly begin to extract one card-- slowly-- from the scatter that the spectator is pressing against on the other side. To the spectators, it actually looks as if the card is sticking half way out of the glass... it takes genuine effort to pull it through.
There is a reason we call it Surgical Card Through Window. It looks like slow surgery on a plain slab of glass. The card is SLOWLY turned over-- it is in fact their signed, selected card on the other side of the window.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show. Because when you turn that card over you are going to be watching one.

I got this years ago and I still use it. My favourite CTW. Its got everything you need and it gets people every time.
This effect is insanely visual, and Garcia's teachings are absolutely flawless. He covers every angle, FROM every angle. It's an awesome effect that, with a little practice, will shatter the minds of anyone who sees you perform it. 5 stars all the way. The subtleties are what make this trick amazing. BUY IT.
This is a fun and easy trick to perform and Daniel's teaching is perfect as usual. It may be difficult to find good areas to perform this but it is great when done right.
