The Eight in the Side Pocket by Dai Vernon

Postby Philippe Noël » July 11th, 2015, 7:35 am

In march 1941 (Vol.5, No.7,p.223), Dai Vernon published a trick named "The Eight in the Side Pocket". In this trick, a selected card sandwiched between two deuces transposes with an eight of clubs which was in the side pocket.
Vernon explains that Jacob Daley has also worked out a novel method which is very perplexing.
Do you know where this method is described?

Yet another gem from Vernon. Pure Vernon.

Hi Smerrill,
The affable aces by Jacob Daley(2012 Nov/Dec issue pp36-37) has nothing to do with Vernon's trick.

Hello,

Not familiar with the effect in discussion but a transposition that involves a sandwiched card and a pocket, it reminds me "The itinerant pasteboard" in Stars of Magic.
