-The plot of the deck instantly reversing itself ​seems first to have appeared in a crude form courtesy of Bill Simon, whose "A Set of Surprises" ​was published in Rufus Steele'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​15157/​52+Amazing+Card+Tricks+Professional+Tricks+that+Anyone+Can+Do/​22-24|52 Amazing Card Tricks]]//, 1949, p. 21. Toni Koynini ​later introduced ​the modern ​version ​of the Inversion effect ​as part of his Ambitious Card sequence in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​20526/​Wizard/​81-82|The Wizard]]//, Vol. 5 No. 51, Sep. 1951, p. 81. Bruce Cervon also used the effect with his "​Kellie Displacement"​ in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​20049/​Epilogue/​53|Epilogue]]//,​ No. 6, July 1969, p. 43; reprinted in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​12760/​The+Cervon+File/​51|The Cervon File]]//, 1988, p. 50.+The plot of the deck instantly reversing itself appeared in //​[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​38442/​The+Sphinx/​8-9|The Sphinx]]//, Vol. 30 No. 7, Sep. 1931, p. 310, as "​Sympathy"​ by O. Meyer. ​Bill Simon later incorporated the idea as a side plot in his "A Set of Surprises" ​from Rufus Steele'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​15157/​52+Amazing+Card+Tricks+Professional+Tricks+that+Anyone+Can+Do/​22-24|52 Amazing Card Tricks]]//, 1949, p. 21. Toni Koynini ​included ​the now-modern ​approach ​of causing ​the deck reversal to occur with a visual, magical moment, describing it as part of his Ambitious Card sequence in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​20526/​Wizard/​81-82|The Wizard]]//, Vol. 5 No. 51, Sep. 1951, p. 81. Bruce Cervon also used the effect with his "​Kellie Displacement"​ in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​20049/​Epilogue/​53|Epilogue]]//,​ No. 6, July 1969, p. 43; reprinted in //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​12760/​The+Cervon+File/​51|The Cervon File]]//, 1988, p. 50.
  
 The Inversion plot was later popularized by James Lewis, who added the name and outjogged-card feature in Michael Ammar'​s //Encore II//, 1981, p. 25 (credited as "Jim Louis"​). Another oft-cited source is Richard Kaufman'​s "The World'​s Fastest Reverse"​ from //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​17425/​Cardmagic/​45|CardMagic]]//,​ 1979, p. 35, but he, too, was several decades late to the plot. The Inversion plot was later popularized by James Lewis, who added the name and outjogged-card feature in Michael Ammar'​s //Encore II//, 1981, p. 25 (credited as "Jim Louis"​).
