This will be the first in a series of the Triumph effect. Here is some history I got from Wikipedia.
Triumph has become the name for an effect wherein a deck of cards is mixed face-up and face-down, and are then magically righted, with the exception of a selected card. The name comes from Dai Vernon's "Triumph," published in Stars of Magic in 1946.
The effect itself was not new in 1946 when Vernon published "Triumph," although his method for accomplishing it certainly was. The first trick where cards mixed face-up and face-down are magically righted was Theodore DeLand's marketed item called "Inverto" (August 1914). It involved the performer dealing the pack onto the table in a pile, flipping every other card face-up, before showing that the cards were all facing the same direction. It was accomplished with a mechanical deck, with every other card being double-backed. The trick was a favorite of Nate Leipzig, who called his version "Reverso." It was eventually published in Dai Vernon's Tribute to Nate Leipzig. And when Jacob Daley's Notebooks was finally published in 1971, entry 21, "Vernon's Magic Mix," described Vernon's own handling of the DeLand principle, probably dating from the thirties.
A few years after DeLand's "Inverto," in 1919, Charles T. Jordan marketed his version of the trick, "Ultimo," which used the same principle, but had an improved mechanical deck design. Around the same time, Jordan was also selling an instruction sheet for his "Reversed Cards," which was a method to accomplish the feat with a regular deck of cards. Jordan's "Reversed Cards" was reprinted in Encyclopedia of Card Tricks (1937, p. 355) and in Charles Jordan's Best Card Tricks, compiled by Karl Fulves (1992, p. 66).
The first published trick to incorporate a selected card to the face-up/face-down mix was "The S. L. Reversed Card," by Sid Lorraine. It appeared in 1937 in John Braun and Stewart Judah's Subtle Problems You Will Do. Lorraine used his Slop Shuffle to accomplish the effect. Interestingly, when The Lost Notebooks of John Northern Hilliard was published in 2001, it detailed a trick by Stewart Judah in which he had added a selected card to what was essentially DeLand's "Inverto." Although it wasn't published until the notebooks were discovered, the idea dates to the mid-thirties.
Another mechanical version, inspired by Vernon's "Triumph," was marketed by U.F. Grant in 1948 and called "Cheek to Cheek."
