This effect by Phil Goldstein, in which a chosen card is removed from the deck while the deck is strung, by a hole through its center, onto a cord, then replaced reversed in the strung pack, was published in Goldstein's Mix '86, 1986, not paginated but sixth page. However, a remarkably similar effect by Walter B. Gibson was discovered by Goldstein in 2002. See “The Escaping Cards” in Gibson's Two Dozen Effective Practical Card Tricks, 1927, p. 41.
