Kaps and Cardini hands down. In present day Lance Burton, Arthur Trace. They, in my opinion, have/had a naturalness in movement and execution that is not seen as much as it should be in manipulation.

I Have seen Sheridan do his magic Street style and then I saw it done in a theatre ...no music ...dead silent ...it worked in both venues but the theatre venue made it more surreal .... the best l!!

Anyway, the best manipulation act I have ever seen is Lance Burton's Gas Light routine which won him the Grand Prix at Fism. Next is the Cardini act. Everything else is..... everything else.

Cardini and McBride are the best I have ever seen. I recently saw another called Ha Lim An in a magic convention here in Valencia and I was really amazed. He performs a card manipulation routine producing hundreds and hundreds of cards combining it with a nice music. The entire act is astonishing. Highly recommended!!!

One of the best acts I've ever seen live is performed by Ogus Engin. For me it's the best contemporary act.

An Ha Lim has the most most amazing card manipulation routine! He won the stage contest at the IBM/SAM this past summer. His act was incredible!

One performer I have seen only on video who does outstanding card manipulation is Haruhiko Nagisa from japan. I think I spelled the name correctly, He does an outstanding card production act including standard split fan productions in the right hand and and interesting split fan production (not from a BP) in the left hand with the back of the hand toward the audience. He had an instructional video out once on VHS but I don't know if it was ever available in the US. The video was introduced by Shigeo Takagi as I recall. Makes me wonder what other instructional video or books might be available in other countries. I can't remember how I found out about the Cirs and Nop book _Card Productions for the Stage_ published with text in four languages (English, French, German and I think Spanish). Does anyone know if Cirs and Nop ever produced a video? In addition to techniques for producing cards, I think there was some interesting stuff on other flourishes, including card spinning.

Anatole,
You are right about Nagisa, he must be one of the best card manipulators and after along search I finally found both of his instructional DVDs published by AIVIDEO. You can also get it thru Mahka Tendo`s web site.
I can`t believe that nobody mentioned Viggo Jahn, Richard Ross, Magic Christian, Ger Copper, Pierre Brahma, Tonny van Dommelen, Salvano, amazing manipulations done by Tommy Wonder and Alpha on FISM 1973, Silvan from Italy...... I can make this list quite long.

I like many of those already mentioned but I also like Stephen Vanel's and Lance Burton's both of which I have seen a bit of when I was in Las Vegas. Burton's show opened with some manipulation and although I was in the 2nd row I could not detect his steals! truly a pro. And Vanel's rapid fire card work is an inspiration.

That An Ha Lim guy was impressive too (thanks for posting that youtube link) but it was a bit fast for me, many of the split fans didn't look very neat.

I agree that on that video, he wasn't as tight as he was at IBM/SAM. But man is he tight now! He was flawless in both performances. The youtube video is only a taste of his act. You need to see the whole thing and see it live. It is indescribable.
