Description

Signed by Elon Musk at a PayPal reunion for a magic trick by the 'Millionaire's Mentalist'


Exceptional Ace of Clubs playing card from a special deck created for PayPal's 20th-anniversary party, signed in black felt tip by Elon Musk as part of a magic trick performed by Dan Chan on August 27, 2022, at the reunion/party celebrating PayPal's IPO. In fine condition, with a central vertical and horizontal creases from use in the magic trick. Encapsulated in a PSA/DNA authentication holder. Accompanied by a copy of the selfie that Chan took with Musk and the card, a full deck of the special PayPal 20th anniversary playing cards, and two 'riddle' booklets that define puzzles involving the cards: when put into specific orders, a captcha can be read along the deck's edges to solve the puzzles.

Dan Chan's trick begins with the mark—in this case, Elon Musk—signing his name on a single card, which Chan then produces in a variety of ways—within the deck, and finally folded up in his wallet. The effect that Musk witnessed is similar to that seen in a video on Dan Chan's YouTube channel. Dubbed the 'magician to billionaires' by Business Insider, Dan Chan 'The Millionaire's Mentalist,' and the 'Sage of Silicon Valley,' Dan Chan worked with Elon Musk at PayPal in 1999 for 13 months before leaving to perform magic full time. He has been featured in Business Insider, WSJ, CNBC, and Buzzfeed.
