“I am upset that I didn’t think of it. This really is clever, and a step forward in my humble opinion. The fact that the item (billet, bill, etc) can be shown freely before clipping it in the clip is truly something special. I am a big fan of the executive clip; you will be too.” -Sean Fields
“It never fails to get a tremendous response.” -Bill Abbott

History of the Executive Clip
The history of our art matters so we feel it is necessary to mention the giants in our field.Chris has created a great idea which is different to other popular switching devices but it is important to mention the others who have created and popularized the original idea.
The idea of using a bulldog clip to switch a billet or bill is not new. This gimmick was invented by Bob Ostin in 1953 and marketed by Davenports as “Bob Ostin’s Dice Prediction,”
The original idea of hanging the clip in a large jar was created by Bob Fillman and popularized by Ed Fowler with his 200 to 1 routine.
Others who have worked on the original Ostin clip idea are John Riggs, David Harkey, Steve Dusheck and many more.
