Cheek to Cheek is a Mechanical Deck for performing the effect Triumph marketed by U. F. Grant in 1948.

It has also been marketed under the name of the Triumph Deck.

History

The effect is an uncredited variation of DeLand's 1914 routine "Inverto." U.F. Grant was following the footsteps of many others in stealing DeLand's effect. While Arthur Finley is usually given credit for the concept, this is not true.
