Small-Packet All-Backs

This packet trick—done (apparently) with three cards—combines J. N. Hofzinser's “Everywhere and Nowhere” plot with the All Backs effect. The original version, “Hofzinser All-Backed”, by Harry Riser (miscredited to John Thompson) was published in Epilogue, No. 12, Jul. 1971, p. 91. Tricks by Al Saal and Milton Kort were later identified as inspirational to Riser's trick; see Saal's “Three Card Trick” and Kort's “All Backs Finish” in Epilogue, No. 13, Nov. 1971, p. 99 and 100.
