Al baker had a Shrinking cards effect where he "squeezed" the cards
and they shrunk each time.

I recently saw a a recording of mark Wilson performing a version where
he fanned the cards in one hand over the other and they shrunk,
I assume (perhaps incorrectly) that this version predates the baker
version.

Does anyone know the inventor?

Ton onosaka apparently has a version of what I'm referring to,
i don't know if he's the original creator.

I always liked U.F. Grant's Diminishing Cards. It is easy-to-do and the handling IMO is much cleaner than Al Bakers.

I wonder if Grant's is still available?

I am still performing with the Owens Magic diminishing cards in my opinion they’re the best each Stack of cards or individual cards not a rivet fan like the bakers so you drop single cards from each diminish stack into your hat or whatever .I found a set at hocus-pocus for a backup .If you can find a set grab them.
