Top 10 Greatest Card Tricks of All Time

Card tricks were once described by the great magician Hofzinser as the "poetry of magic". Yes, they can also be horrible with your kid brother asking you to count 21 cards three times but they can also be sublime, that's the breadth of card poetry. This list of the greatest card tricks ever highlights 10 of what we believe are the greatest classics of the genre. Enjoy...

There are a plethora of wonderful magic card tricks and this list contains some of our favorites. If you would like to learn more card tricks, we recommend you grab yourself a copy of Joshua Jay's extensive modern card magic. It's an excellent resource to not only learn the basics but advanced methods as well. If you're looking for something way advanced for your card magic, we suggest the Card College 5 volume set by Roberto Giobbi. It is an amazing achievement of everything you wanted to know about card tricks but were afraid to ask. We wish you much success and enjoyment in magic!
