Bill Goldman – Monkey In The Middle
No moves?!? Yup. No moves.

So.. I’m floored. Where has this trick been all my life? This may be the most perfect card trick, certainly the most perfect sandwich trick. THEY sign a card. They put 2 jokers on top of the pack. You don’t move a MUSCLE. And instantly, their card is between the jokers. This trick is practical, easy to do, packs small, and plays big. The method is incredibly clever, yet simple enough to make you wonder why you didn’t think of it yourself. However, there is something you should know — the trailer description claims that there are “no moves” involved. That’s not exactly right; in order to perform this trick, you’ll need to accomplish a beginner level sleight. It’s a very easy move, but it is a move. Furthermore, if you wish to reset the trick in front of your spectator, you’ll need to perform another (equally easy) beginner level sleight. None of these moves make the trick look any less clean than what you see in the trailer. From the spectator’s point of view, their selected card goes in the middle of the deck, they place the Jokers on top of the pack, and then boom — with no funny moves, their card instantly materializes between the Jokers
