Fred Trick was the card routine created by Fred Lowe (with Paul Marcus) originally called "Christened Reverse". It was seen by Dave Campbell in 1971 who developed a different method to create "Fred the card" trick (as a dedication to Fred Lowe).

Phil Goldstein developed a version in the early 1980s, entitled "Final Fred" and presented it in a lecture at the 1985 FISM convention in Madrid.

It reinvented years later by Trevor Duffy and coincidental called it the "Phil" Trick.
