Magician Eric Price tags the metro with playing cards. He calls his signature trick -- in which he tosses a deck of cards in the air and the middle card sticks to the ceiling -- "the perfect closer." Here's how it works: An audience member picks a card and signs it. The card is placed in the center of a deck, which Price binds with a rubber band and throws in the air. When the deck strikes the ceiling, the middle card pops out and sticks to the ceiling. The other 51 cards fall, still bound together, and audience members are left wondering how he did it. The 33-year-old Price sounds like a historian when he talks about the trick. For instance, he says, a decade ago, the man who popularized the trick, Michael Ammar, was arrested for throwing a card at the ceiling at KCI. For his part, Price tossed his highest cards 60 feet at the River Market Brewing Co. Now, he regularly chucks cards 25 feet at Waldo Pizza and at Johnny's. The cards serve as free advertising because customers wonder why the ace of spades is stuck to the ceiling, he says. Price is definitely leaving his mark.
