Between Your Palms is a card routine developed by Alex Elmsley. The basic plot is an unknown card being held by the spectator at the start of the routine, turns out to be a selected signed (after the prediction is shown) card.

A "prediction" card is placed between the spectator's palms PRIOR to having three cards selected (one of which is signed). The two unsigned cards are also placed in the spectator's palm. After trying to find the last signed card, it turns out to be the "prediction" card that had been in the spectator's hand the entire time.

It was published in Abracadabra, Vol. 13, No. 335, 28 June, 1952 and reprinted in The Collected Works of Alex Elmsley, Vol. 2, page 246 (1994) written by Stephen Minch.[1]
