I am looking for a good way to mark cards by number in a m*******d s***k.
I seem to remember Ed Marlo had a way to do this efficiently. Does anyone know where to find it?

From Aronson

Ed Marlo employed a memorized deck, and when using “marked cards,” Ed found it easier to
“mark” the backs of cards to indicate the card’s stack number, instead of its suit and value.
Marked Memory,” Pallbearers Review, Jan. 1968, p. 152.

Marlo's method, a number of related stack-oriented ones, and a great deal more, can be found in Kirk Charles' excellent reference, Marked for Life.
