The Ultimate Rip-off is Paul Harris' approach to the Torn and Restored Card plot first published in Supermagic (1977), then later reprinted in Art of Astonishment, Book 1 (1996). Significant in that it uses only one card and no extra pieces.
See also Ultimate Rip-off - Dancing with the Last Piece in Art of Astonishment for restoring the last piece.
- Tommy Wonder's Post-Ultimate Rip-Off in The Books of Wonder - Vol. 1, written by Stephen Minch (1996)
- David Acer's R.I.P. in Natural Selections, Volume II (1999). Performed with a business card, features a piece-by-piece restoration, and is framed in a presentation that justifies the fact that the final piece is left unrestored.
- Bill Duncan's Billy the Vampire Slayer, published in Tubthumping (Duncan, 2003). This is a presentation for Harris's original handling that motivates the fact that the final piece is left unrestored.
