Publication Date1978

Based on an Fred Robinson's Ambitious Riser published in Pabular (Vol. 1), the main routine is having three signed cards which had been lost in the deck, rise individually as one hand holds the deck toward the audience. The third selection rises with its back toward audience, which then instantly and visibly turns around to be seen as the third signed selection.
