The Out to Lunch principle is an ingenious method of switching one card for another without detection under close scrutiny. Its origins go back 150 years. The traditional method has a rubber band around the cards that hide a half card. It is a beautiful principle that has many applications.
For those of us who occasionally work an upscale crowd, the rubber band seems very...well, inelegant, for lack of a better term.
So a few years ago, Greg Wilson came out with the Stockholder wallet. This was a beautiful leather item with a band that accomplished the same purpose as the rubber band. At first, this looked like a solution to the "elegance" question. But no one I know carries a wallet like this, gimmicked or not, for business cards. So it turned out to be a kind of "magic proppy" looking thing.
Well, Rocky Mountain Magic and Tim Andrews has devised a simple, but elegant, stainless steel clip that holds about 6 business cards. This doesn't look like a prop, it looks like what it is...a simple clip that holds a few business cards together. It is a totally innocent looking thing that accomplishes the out to lunch principle perfectly without looking "proppy".
