The magician asserts that there is a fascinating and inexplicable mathematical oddity that takes place when a deck of cards is thoroughly shuffled and divided into two packets. When each packet is cut to a random card, both cards will always be the same suit, and the first card will always be HALF the value of the second. However, when this claim is demonstrated, the second randomly cut card proves to be the seven of spades. It appears obvious that the magician's claim is untrue because in order for it to be successful, the first cut card would have to be a three and a half.

As impossible as it seems, the first randomly cut card is revealed and audience discovers that it is actually a very strange looking three and a half of spades!

**Mathematical Oddity** comes complete with two specially printed poker size red Bicycle Rider backed cards (a 3 1/2 of spades and a matching fourteen of hearts for repeat and different performances) plus detailed instructions written by Daryl - The Magician's Magician.

These superb quality cards are specially printed for us by the U.S. Playing Card Company.
