 Orville Meyer contributed his synthesis, using a Tele-matic forcing deck, to //​Mental-wise//,​ Vol. 2 No. 8, Mar. 1956, p. 2. Instead of showing a fan of three cards for confirmation,​ Meyer called off the names of three cards and had the three persons raise their hands if they had heard their card. This is likely where David Hoy got the idea. Curiously, the strength of this trick wasn't widely recognized until Hoy published it in his //​[[http://​askalexander.org/​display/​20672/​The+Bold+and+Subtle+Miracles+of+Dr+Faust/​27|Bold and Subtle Methods of Dr. Faust]]//, 1963, p. 25. He gave no history of the trick and his only change was to ask the three persons to affirm verbally that he had named their card, rather than having them raise their hands. Yet, the trick was for quite a time almost invariably identified as "​Hoy'​s Tossed-out Deck". Orville Meyer contributed his synthesis, using a Tele-matic forcing deck, to //​Mental-wise//,​ Vol. 2 No. 8, Mar. 1956, p. 2.
