Effect: The performer places the four aces face down on the table in a row. He holds four black spot cards and places one onto the "leader" Ace. He takes one of the other aces into his hand. The Ace vanishes from the packet and appears with the leader Ace. This is repeated with the other two aces.
Peter also used to perform this effect with 2 jumbo cards that had been cut into quarters (to help hide one of the inconsistencies in the trick).
