Dr. Daley's Last Trick is a classic plot in card magic in which the Red Aces change places with the Black Aces.

During the last months of Dr. Daley's life he evolved this card trick, which he demonstrated for Dai Vernon. Dai Vernon included this trick in his book The Dai Vernon Book of Magic (1957) as a tribute.
