PS Really like the J. C. Wagner routine from The Commercial Magic of J. C. Wagner.
I agree, Paul. That is actually the handling I'm using. The story I tell is one I made up involving Thurston, and I use a Thurston throw out card along with a sand frame for the end of the story. Like I said though, I think it's the older, longer, European style cards that will make the story (for me, at least).
I actually have a set from Neil Lester. They just don't fit the story that I have for this one.
