Air-Pressure or Revolution Turnover is a classic way to reveal a chosen card.

You throw the deck on the table and the chosen card which is on top unbeknown to the spectators turns face-up thanks to air-pressure.

The first description of this sleight appeared in The Boy's Own Book by William Clarke (1829).

Testament de Jérôme Sharp (1785) has a trick where you control four selections to the top and basically do the air pressure turnover four times. The difference is you don't drop the pack, you jog the card over with the thumb and swipe your hand down so that the card flies off and lands face up on the table.
