This is a John Bannon packet trick from before he went all fractal [smile]

Great job, Paul!

It is still available, marketed through Meir Yedid. Always got good reactions. Of course I recommend lots of good packet tricks in my packet trick books.

John Bannon has also approached the wildcard plot with ungaffed cards, see "Return of The Magnificent Seven" in his book "Smoke and Mirrors" (1992) and the much later approach "Mag-7" in his book "Mega 'Wave" (2010).

William P. Miesel is another that had some ungaffed approaches to 'wild card', see his book (if you can find it) "The Creative Card Magic of William P. Miesel" (1980).

I saw John B perform this on one of his videos and, knowing the Counts, I did recreate it. It is a beatifully constructed routine but I haven't performed it in years.
This thread made me look it up again. After all , it's Bannon!

Bob King has a nice handling of this effect by Bannon, not sure if it's in print.
