-====== Magnetized Cards ====== 
-This effect appeared as "Gravity Defied" in August Roterberg's //[[|New Era Card Tricks]]// (1897, p. 97). 
-Postdating methods with pins, Burling Hull invented the method in which a half-circle tab concealed in the back design of a prepared card is used to suspend a circle of loose cards under the palm-down hand. He published this in //[[|Sleights]]//, 1914, p. 7, where he says he "invented and Copyrighted" the gimmick in 1907.
