The Si Stebbins Stack is a Card Stack system originally published in the United States around 1898 by William Coffrin (alias Si Stebbins), in a booklet titled “Si Stebbins’ Card tricks and the Way He Performs Them”. There was also a latter edition titled “Card tricks and the Way They are Performed”.

This circular stack permits one to determine the card following any given card. The pack may be given any number of single complete cuts without destroying the sequence.
