|-||====== Tosheroon ======|
|-||Tosheroon was invented by Bob Driebek and marketed by Harry Stanley, who later published it in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/3016/Gen+Vol+23/250|The Gen]]//, Vol. 23 No. 11, Mar. 1968, p. 250. An additional handling by John F. Pooley is also detailed. The original effect was that of placing a coin on a face-up packet, then covering it with the other portion of the deck. When the packets were next separated, the card beneath the coin had changed. The gimmick was a card with a hole in it.|
|-||Edward Marlo published an "open" version with a face-up deck in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/12843/Pallbearers+Review+Vol+1+2/51|Pallbearers Review]]//, Vol. 1 No. 10, Aug. 1966, p. 49, that used a flat palm steal, titled "Card Flight." An overview of the many subsequent versions appears under "Tosheroon Two" by Herb Zarrow in //Kabbala//, Vol. 2 No. 8, Aug. 1973, p. 63. See also Frank Garcia's "Razzle Dazzle" in //[[http://askalexander.org/display/20227/Million+Dollar+Card+Secrets/42|Million Dollar Card Secrets]]//, 1972, p. 40, "Snaparoon" in Don England's //Technical Knock-outs //, 1981, p. Hearts 12, for a rubber banded version, and the "Zaney Gimmick" versions by Mike Rogers and Jon Racherbaumer in //Kabbala//, Vol. 1 No. 12, Dec. 1972, p. 93, and //The Complete Mike Rogers//, 1975, p. 139.|
