This was not traditional corner-shorted ​card, but one with a one-sided stripper cut. Vernon published the idea again (with a traditional corner-shorted card) without attribution ​in Ganson'​s //Dai Vernon'​s Ultimate Secrets of Card Magic//, 1967, p. 150. It was explained in more detail in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​13100/​The+Lost+Inner+Secrets/​31|The Vernon Chronicles, Vol. 1]]//, 1987, p. 2, in which Vernon said he had learned the idea from a gambler in San Francisco.+J. G. Thompson, Jr. published the idea of tapping the deck on one corner to cause a corner-shorted card to jog from the edge as a method of locating a reversed card in “A Super Strip Deck”, a deck in which one corner of all cards is cut short (see also [[cards:​corner-shorted_cards_and_deck|Corner-Shorted Deck]]). It is the sixth method of locating the card in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​37595/​Linking+Ring/​46|The Linking Ring]]//, Vol. 23 No. 8, Oct. 1943, p. 46.
