While most knew him from various acting roles, Ricky Jay was easily the best sleight of hand magician of our era. Seeing him perform closeup was, well, magical.

I was about 13 the first time I saw him throwing cards on TV. He showed his grip and gave an explanation of how to throw cards. I must have spent the next three or four weeks throwing and chasing cards around the house, until the only deck I had was completely ruined with bent edges. I still get the urge to throw a card across the room whenever I get a deck in hand . . . and sometimes still do. RIP Ricky Jay.
