    I'm a big fan of both pinball and card tricks, so I felt I had to share this. From my local barcade a few weeks ago:

    tl;dr: JR appears to throw a card through the glass on a Dr. Who at #Blairally in Eugene, Oregon.

    Wow! That's good!

    That was a great trick, and boy those are some drunk people!

    Neat trick but you can see were the card gets put in pocket and how signature (of accomplice ) is slightly different on the card in the pinball. Works great on drunks though.

    He also pulls the card from the bottom of the deck - fun trick

    I think it was already there before the trick began. Risky move, considering someone could've easily seen it and called him out before the trick was done.

    Had to check myself. Damn good copy.

    Yeah when I was trying to figure out how it was done I noticed the center heart had more white showing inthe center of the "R" ...Still a good trick though.

    It's safe to guess that the card was preloaded into Dr. Who. The question is how and when did he sign the dupe? It's certainly possible the guy paid his tab and JR copied his signature; but, how did he know exactly where he would sign the card?

    As was noted above, you need a plant. Note how he almost has the girl do it, then he switches to the random guy a second later.

    …a plant that has practiced writing his signature, or whatever that was, over and over and over again to get it just about perfect every time.

    I've signed my name hundreds of times over the last twenty years to any number of documents…never looks the same. Similar, yes. Identical, no way.

    Magic is very much a highly skilled craft. Well, good magic anyway.

    Or you do another trick earlier. Force the same card and do some kind of signature trick. Same person same sig.

    Notice how the guy's signature was sort of bizarre, not just loopy cursive or block letters. That pattern helps the writer remember how to do it the same way each time, and if it's not perfect, it helps the audience "believe" that it's the same signature since it's so unique. Pretty damn good, still. But what a a pain to have to open the glass just to get the damn card in and out!
