The Ambitious Card routine is one of the best card tricks that use an ordinary deck of cards.
The spectator selects a random card and can even sign it. The card then magically jumps to the top of the pack over and over again. The card is placed face up into the centre of the pack and after a magical gesture it melts to the top of the pack again. The performer even gets the spectator to push the card into the pack only to find it is in the magicians mouth. Finally, the card is folded in half and with a snap of the fingers, you visually see the card rise to the top of the pack. The signed card is then given to the spectator for a souvenir.
