-Invented by Tommy Tuckerusing a glide for the false count. He first published it in Eastman'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​18519/​Expert+Manipulative+Magic/​19|Expert Manipulative Magic]]//, 1933, p. 18. See Pull-Down reference ​above for notes on the use of that sleight by John Booth as a subsequent sleight-of-hand method for this trick. ​The buckle count was also applied to the trick during its early days. The first published suggestion of using bills instead of cards seems to be by C. Brustia in //The Sphinx//, Vol. 36No. 1, March 1937, p. 8. Brustia featured only the idea of using bills instead of cards, while writing, "Use your favorite method."​ Brustia preceded Tom Bowyer and his "​Repeat Bill Trick" in print by nine months. Bowyer contributed his version to the December 1937 issue of //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​36560/​Genii/​6|Genii]]//,​ Vol. 2No. 4, p. 110. Sid Lorraine credits Baffles Brush with the card-envelope method, in the late 1930s (see //Tops//, Vol. 18No. 5, May 1953, p. 19). He writes, "The method, however, was first introduced to us years 'n years ago by the late Baffles Brush. It was during John Ramsay'​s first trip to America, which should date it. Baffles disclosed the method to John and yours truly in deep secrecy. Several inventors have claimed the method since//.//" Bowyer used envelope bills in his 1937 "​Repeat Bill Trick"Since Bowyer was Canadian, he was likely ​in Lorraine'​s circle and privy to this information. This first trip by Ramsay to America seems to have been in 1934, when he performed at the IBM convention in Batavia (see //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​37579/​Linking+Ring/​37|The Linking Ring]]//, Vol. 14No. 4, June 1934, p. 275). Sam Berland came up with the idea of using rubber cement on the edges of the cards to hold packets of three together ​(//The Tarbell Course in Magic, Vol. 6//, 1954, p. 75).+Tommy Tucker ​published this plot -- using a glide for the false count -- in Chas Eastman'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​18519/​Expert+Manipulative+Magic/​19|Expert Manipulative Magic]]//, 1933, p. 18. (See [[cards:​pull-down]] ​reference for citations ​on the use of that sleight by John Booth as a subsequent sleight-of-hand method for this trick.
