What kind of sleeve change ?

The one where you brush a card on your sleeve and it changes ?

The one where you put a card inside your sleeve then it changes ?

Or another one I don't know ?

Could you explain the procedure, please.

If the change is also visual, this sleight named the Snap-Over Change was attributed to Paul LePaul.
See page 197 in The Card Magic of LePaul (1949)

But the first who used two cards back to back for a visual change was Jean-Eugne Robert-Houdin (1868).

There is a tip on this move in one of the Tommy Wonder books: rub the card on top of your sleeve, then rub it underneath, and do the change then. Try it.

Wait a minute, who invented the sleeve change where you rub a card on your sleeve and the sleeve changes? Now that's what I'd like to see.
