Fan Steal

A place where beginners can participate, ask questions, and post their views. However, beginners typically ask a lot of questions about sources, tricks, books, and so on.

I am looking for a reference for the Fan Steal

I am told it is by John Cornelius. I know it

in his new book but I am looking for the early

reference. I am talking about a card inserted into

a fan, the fan closed and the card swings out to a

palm position......Mike

I remember this was in an old set of his lecture notes. Check with H&R, they may have this.
