Fan Steal

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on. In fact, all magicians are interested (or should be) in the provenance of tricks, ideas, and related matters. This department will service these needs.

I am looking for a reference for the Fan Steal

I am told it is by John Cornelius. I know it

in his new book but I am looking for the early

reference. I am talking about a card inserted into

a fan, the fan closed and the card swings out to a

palm position......Mike

I remember this was in an old set of his lecture notes. Check with H&R, they may have this.
