In Roy Walton's The Complete Walton, Vol. Two, he has an effect entitled "Back Into Time," which is identical to the routine by Steve Freeman (Genii Vol. 45, No. 7, 1981, according to Giobbi).
The finesse of rotating the card counterclockwise brillantly sells this effect. I've seen it performed for 25 to 30 people, producing literal gasps. Kudos to whomever added that idea.
