-====== Open Marked Deck ====== 
-While the idea of openly marking the values and suits on the backs of cards is generally attributed to Ted Lesley, who used white press-on lettering on the backs of the cards, Page Wright suggested using a typewriter on a blue-backed deck to do the same job. This is mentioned by Fred Braue in the //​[[http://​​display/​38697/​Hugard+s+Magic+Monthly/​48|Hugard'​s Magic Monthly]]//,​ Vol. 5, No. 6, Nov. 1947, p. 370. Braue begins the note with "Out of the Past", which may suggest Wright published this idea somewhere earlier.
