We use the dual undercut to control the card back to the top so that it is the first card in the deck. Once we put it back in the box.

Will people be suspicious of this box?

Don’t worry about the people being suspicious about there being a hole at the back of the box.

In actuality, at the start of the trick leave the box face down right on the table in front of everyone. That makes it even more amazing since it was there right in front of them the whole time. So that they won’t suspect anything.

At the conclusion of the trick, simply take the card out together with the rest of the deck. And casually put the box away in your pocket.
