Gaëtan Bloom's 3 Card Monte

I've been rummaging through my magic stuff, and came across Gaëtan Bloom's gimmicked 3-Card Monte card set that I bought well over 20 years ago. My problem...I no longer have the instructions. Can anyone recommend a source for getting the instructions after all these years?

Thanks,

Question about 1989 M.A.E.S Convention...

Looking for a needle in a haystack... I've already contacted the current M.A.E.S. historian, and he informed me that the M.A.E.S. archives don't reach back to 1989. I'm wondering if anyone here has a memory that reaches back that far. I participated in a close-up round robin at the 1989 M.A.E.S., an...

Hello, What is the name of the card principle where cards are counting one at a time to the table from 10 down to one, and when the number of the card coincides with the number in the count, the count is terminated and a new pile started?
