Card on Ceiling or Wall is a classic Card Revelation plot where a (usually signed) card is returned to the pack and tossed at the ceiling or a wall. All the cards come down except for the signed card still stuck to it.

Some versions have no apparent reason for the cards to "stick", others use a thumbtack.

This is typically an effect done as a closer.

Karl Norman at the Forks Hotel originated the handling popularized by Michael Ammar with the box of Sucrets.
