Collectors is the name given by Roy Walton to a now-classic plot in card magic wherein three selected cards are lost in the deck, then reappear interlaced (and face down) between the cards in a face-up four-of-a-kind (e.g., Aces, Kings, Queens).

An outgrowth of the Sandwich plot, it was in print prior to the publication of Walton's Collectors including "Ose's Addition to The Apex Ace," by Jay Ose, in Close-Up Card Magic (Lorayne, 1962).
