The performer removes a paperclipped and folded card from his pocket and sets it in full view of the audience. A card is then freely selected, signed and returned to the deck. And yet, when the performer unclips the folded card and slowly unfolds it...it is found to be the signed card! This is a truly mind-blowing impossibility.
