http://youtu.be/o9EZXrB9HSk This is another idea that was self discovered that ive been playing around with. The idea of having a card freely riffled down to and then out-jogged. Upon raising the deck for the selection to be seen, the card is then switched for the top card. The card is pulled out a little more before it is "reinserted" back into the "middle" of the deck. Palm is used to home-run the selection for that subtle convincer. And the riffle is for the observer looking for that "break", or action for control. Its ofcourse hard to believe that this idea is original, I just cant locate anything like this in my resourses. Names and resource anyone? Always Now, Robert out!

Looks like Frank Garcia's Topper move, published in the Phoenix No. 282.

Jay Sankey uses the move in quite a few of his older effects, but calls it "Topper-Tack."

Sankey's version was published in "Sankey Unleashed".
