Hi everyone,
while sorting my decks of cards I came across a box with two decks in it.
One deck is unchanged, while the other has numbers from 1 to 52 written on the cards' backs.
For the life of me I can't remember which trick I made it for (it was years ago), but I'm pretty sure it's a self-worker.
Anyone has an idea of a trick that matches this?

Thanks,
Lior.

I think I finally found it - Cameron Francis' Convergence.

I like the variation which has the first names of people written on the backs of cards - all different - and the face-up card chosen by the spectator is turned over to reveal that he or she selected a card with his or her first name written on it. It's more personal than just numbers.

Is that a variant of convergence or a whole other effect? I don't think I've seen it.

You make it yourself, either with just a single deck of cards, or if you want to do a switch and show all normal cards both sides, add a second deck.

There's a couple of performances of Convergence by Cameron Francis himself here:
