Comments (KochMagic): From the Introduction: "The magician picks a card from his packet. The spectator then picks a card from his pack. Magician and spectator exchange cards. Spectator places the magician’s card in his own packet. He shuffles and cuts the packet to his own satisfaction. Spectator then takes his packet to the phone and calls the medium. He reads off the card in his packet and reads them off in any order. This packet contains the magician’s card but not the spectators. The medium has no idea of the identity of either card. After the spectator reads off the cards in his packet, the medium reveals both of the chosen cards. Remember, borrowed shuffled deck, no code or gimmicks. Magician picks his card first. Spectator has an absolutely free choice of any card in his own packet. Magician never knows the name of the spectator’s card and never touches the spectator’s packet."
