The traditional Card in Bottle plot has a problem. The card can't be signed, the bottle has to be pre-loaded and the reveal is getting the spectator to 'discover' the card at the end of the routine. In short - it's a trick that misses the mark.

Laura London however, doesn't miss.

The incredible thinking behind this effect manages to tick every box for the ultimate on-the-spot performance. The card is signed. The magical moment is instant. The spectator is left with an impossible souvenir.

This is the effect that Laura uses to close every show - and it's the reason why she's booked solid for months in advance.

A card is selected and signed by the spectator. The spectator replaces the card anywhere in the deck and shuffles the deck themselves. The deck is spread on the table and the spectator verifies their card is still in the stack.

The deck is picked up and INSTANTLY smacked against the bottom of an empty bottle -- BAM! Their signed card has penetrated through the bottom of the bottle in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment. The card-in-bottle can now be given out as a souvenir.


  • Card is Signed by Spectator
  • Card is genuinely lost in the deck - No sleight of hand required
  • Spectator can shuffle the cards themselves
  • Spectator verifies the card is still in the deck
  • Card appears instantly - VISUALLY - in the bottle
  • Both Gimmicked and Ungimmicked versions taught.

Laura teaches two versions - gimmicked and non-gimmicked, as well as multiple presentation ideas. The gimmicked version makes practicing much easier and leaves the spectator with a clean, better looking, impossible souvenir.

Card in a bottle - Pretty Cool

I watched the video and although it was as I suspected, the details were the important part and were different than I expected. For the price, this is a bargin. I bought rhe special card(s) and am looking forward to giving it a try. In the past, I was very succesful in the past with bottle cap in a beer bottle and I expect this will even be better for wider audience. I am going to do this in about a week for magic club to try it out. I am confident that it will be a real winner. Thanks for the bargain price and the value.
