I'm looking for the origin of the sandwich effect in cards.

In Card Man Stuff (1953), Al Leech has "Ace Sandwich", which seems to be the basis for Lorayne's "One Eyed Jack Sandwich" - can anyone point me to anything earlier?

Thanks

It seems that anything earlier begins like this :

1917 - The Magic Wand - The Obedient Card - Christianer Louis
1920 - The Magician Monthly - The Twentieth Century Card Trick - Wray Hubert
1923 - Bagshawe's Magical Monthly - Invisible Transit - Baghshawe Edward
1927 - The Tarbell Course in Magic - Find the Burglar - Tarbell Harlan
1928 - And a Pack of Cards - The Royak Finders - Merlin Jack

Hey, Don!

I agree with you! How DOES he do that?

Easily, I read The Master Index to Magic in Print by Potter (Jack, not Harry)
