Maybe "Fat City" from John Bannon?

It is published in "Smoke and Mirrors" on page 35.

Hello Phillipe, Ray Kosby has also a version of this plot on his DVD “Impossible Card Magic”
It is called “Pac Jacks”

It seems like the whole deck between the sandwich cards was mostly treated as a gag or precursor - see Walton's Smiling Mule and variations thereof.

Bannon may have been the first to turn it into a core effect with the deck travelling to the sandwich cards at the denouement (and leaving the selection behind).

Thank you.

Let's say the gag in Walton's book That Certain Something (1976) is the premise which inspired Bannon.

Research go on !
