Cannibal Cards is a classic plot in card magic developed by Lin Searles, marketed in 1959, where cards disappear when sandwiched between other cards (that is, they are "eaten" by the "cannibal" cards.) The original routine uses gimmicked cards, which eat various small objects (such as a paper clip) in addition to other cards.

Later, magicians began developing sleight of hand versions. The prototypal version was created by Matt Corin.

Roy Walton recognized that Alex Elmsley's "Repulsive Aces" could be used to perform Cannibal Cards. See page 229-233 in The Collected Works of Alex Elmsley, Vol. 1 (1991)
