Description


An astonishing rarity: a playing card signed by Prince William “WW” (for “William Wales”).

Signed by the Prince in 2005 as part of a magic trick at a London charity event.

Royal protocol forbids members of the royal family from signing autographs. As such, this is an extremely rare opportunity to own one of the most desirable signatures on the planet.

Full details of provenance: 

Consigned by renowned magician Ian Sav – www.headofmagic.co.uk 

His letter of authenticity reads, in part:

On 1st October 2005 I was invited to perform at a black and white themed party at Banqueting House, London. Lots of notables in attendance including George Martin (Beatles producer) and other celebrities. On the top table sat Prince William and Lady Melissa Percy.

I offered the Prince to choose a card. The 2 of Spades was chosen… I then asked the Prince to sign the card to which he happily obliged. I then turned to Lady Melissa Percy who also signed the card.

During the classic magic effect lots of various card manipulations took place until the crescendo where the card vanished from the deck.

I looked the Prince in the eye and explained it had appeared folded in quarters under his watch! Sure enough it was! In total shock the astounded Prince repeatedly pronounced “EXTRAORDINARY!!”

The light folds necessary to place the card under the Prince’s watch barely detract from the magnificence of this piece.

Ian Sav is donating a portion of the proceeds to the Mind charity.
