If I remember right Vernon did publish a method of the rising cards. But as I said this looks like a posed publicity shot and nothing to do with the rising cards that Vernon published.
I find it interesting that there are three cups on the table for the cups and balls and not enough room to do the trick - unless they clear away a few things off the table.
As for the name calling in the word "wags"???
Not worth my time to respond!
