Yes John,Max is so prolific but if an effect of his is too good I don't believe they will put it in a magazine.They are going to market it for 15 or 20 bucks.
I'm pretty sure that I've seen several of Max' items that have been published in magazines, items that a few years later have been marketed. There are several published things of his that comes to mind that I guess might become marketed in the future.
For example, there was an absolutely delightful and funny packet trick in Magic magazine a few years ago with Hummer-inspired smile/frown faces. I have not seen anyone perform it, but I'm quite sure that if it will be marketed, many magicians will start to perform it. The same is true with many of Max' items in Genii.
