Card in Ice Cube

Theodore Annemann describes a trick in which the corner of a selection vanishes and appears in an ice cube in The Jinx, No. 26, Nov. 1936, p. 161, titled “The Problem of the Ice Cube.” This is a precursor to Michael Ammar's “The Iceman Cometh,” in which the card, sans corner, is produced in a deck-sized block of ice. Ammar's trick was first published as “Frozen Deckery” in Apocalypse, Vol. 3 No. 4, Apr. 1980, p. 325, followed by his “Ice-O-Teric,” in which a folded card ends up in an ice cube which appears in the performer's hand.
