Thanks Justin. I don't know the Sadowitz production, so I can't offer a comparison. Mine actually came from playing with a Victor Sendax move I read in the 1980s called "Rotary Revelation," which was a flourishy (at the time) method for apparently changing one card into another. "Lickety Flip" (the ace production in question, and in the clip above) was published in Apocalypse around 1990, then later in Natural Selections (1996).
And in case anyone is hunting for still more Ace productions, I also published two in Random Acts of Magic, one with a fair bit of audience interaction called "Lucky Day" (that's the one I do most often these days), and another eye-candy production using a variation of Looy Simonoff's Flippant wherein two Twos are produced, then split into four Aces. The core sleight for this is called Splittant, and can be seen in this clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-1JS8HGSSY
