The producer requests all dealers who resell this product to ADVERTISE it for AT LEAST the full Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Any dealer using the ad copy, images, and/or trailer from Murphy’s Magic Supplies, Inc. website, or who is purchasing this product from Murphy’s Magic Supplies, Inc. for resale purposes, is implicitly agreeing to advertise the product for at least the MSRP. Dealers not in compliance with this request or not choosing to abide by it are NOT authorized to use the ad copy, images, and/or trailers for this item and will NOT be provided units. Furthermore, any dealer who refuses to comply with this request and listing the item puts their ongoing dealer relationship with Murphy’s Magic Supplies, Inc. in jeopardy. Advertising includes any written and electronic media including but not limited to web sites, e-mails, magazine ads, auctions, flyers, catalogs, postcards, or other medium that is distributed outside of the retail location of the dealer or is designed or intended to be removed from the dealer location by the customer.
No advertising of any kind may state or otherwise indicate that the customer may “call for a price”, or “e-mail for a price”, or use phrases such as “lowest price possible”. This also includes any special offers that effectively lower the MSRP of this product (i.e. member discounts, two for one sales, etc.). The product may not be used as a giveaway. This advertising policy pertains ONLY to this item. This advertising policy is in no way designed to restrict dealers’ ability to establish their own resale prices in person to person negotiations. For those that elect to purchase this item and/or advertise it, you are acknowledging and agreeing with this request to maintain the full MSRP in your ADVERTISING as outlined above (or equivalent currency conversion NOT including taxes). Failure to abide by this or failure to immediately correct any infractions of this would mean that Murphy's Magic Supplies, Inc. would not be able to sell you units of this product per the request of the producer.

A prediction envelope is shown in full view of the audience.
'The Boss' is called to the stage to find The Apprentice.
A shuffled pack of cards are shown and are placed into The Boss's pocket.
The entire audience of "Apprentices" stand up and The Boss starts to fire them in amusing ways:
"...if your name starts with an R.. your fired!"
The rejects sit back down, and eventually one person is left standing....The Apprentice!
The Apprentice's first decision is to call out any number between 1 and 52.
The Boss removes the pack of cards, and counts to that chosen number in the pack.
The card at that chosen number is removed, and placed aside, while the rest of the cards are shown again to be all different.
The Apprentice reveals the prediction, and the chosen card is then shown to show be a perfect match.
No sleight of hand!
Spectator counts the cards!
Spectator reveals the prediction!
