 This face-up, face-down shuffle ploy of Sid Lorraine'​s was published as "The S. L. Reversed Card" in John Braun and Stewart Judah'​s //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​18579/​Subtle+Problems+You+Will+Do/​36|Subtle Problems You Will Do]]//, 1937, p. 34. This face-up, face-down shuffle ploy of Sid Lorraine'​s was published as "The S.

-Kent Arthur later added a legitimate version of the mixing procedure to end in a topsy-turvy position, using it alongside ​Lorraine'​s ​false handlingHis "'​Never Idle' ​Cards" ​appeared ​in //[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​12764/Jinx+No+051+100/190|The Jinx]]//, No. 81n.d(cFeb. 1940)p. 526.+Braun and Judah noted in their introduction to Lorraine'​s ​trick: "The reversed card trick we present here was originated by Sid some years ago, and one or two variations of the principle employed have appeared since then." ​This discreet mention seems directed toward R. W. Hull's "Topsy Turvy Cards" in his booklet ​//[[https://​askalexander.org/​display/​14536/The%20Complete%20Eye%20Openers/29|Eye-Openers]]//, 1932p10Hull's face-up-face-down shuffle differs in its outward actions from Lorraine'​s but delivers the same result of the deck consisting of back-to-back halvesHull preceded this shuffle with a demonstration of a legitimatesimilar-looking mix, after which he openly righted the cards before doing his false topsy-turvy shuffle.
  
-Another notable variant is Jerry Andrus'​s “Drunken False Shuffle” from //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​14191/​Andrus+Deals+You+In/​94|Andrus Deals You In]]//, 1956, p. 91. This topsy-turvy false shuffle leaves all the card but one facing the same way.+Another notable variant, published years after Lorraine'​s shuffle and Hull's variant, ​is Jerry Andrus'​s “Drunken False Shuffle” from //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​14191/​Andrus+Deals+You+In/​94|Andrus Deals You In]]//, 1956, p. 91.
