Cards to Pocket (aka Cards up Sleeve) is a classic plot in card magic where cards successively vanish from one hand, seemingly pass up the sleeve, to reappear one by one in the opposite pant pocket.

Believed to be first published in 1868 by Robert-Houdin and known in French as Cartes à la Manche.

It was a popular routine with Charles Bertram, Dai Vernon, Cliff Green and Doc Daley.

Herbert Brooks, from England, is said to be the one that popularized it in the USA. See ad in The Linking Ring, vol. 1, no. 1, January 1923, page 4.
