I am working on a new show and would like to give some accounting of the history of the shell game and cups and balls. Anyone out there know some good source material or someone I could talk to. Thanks for the help.

I would say you can get there the most detailed information on shell game and 3 card monte.

At the very beginning of his viedo Sal Piacente gives a " mini " history talk about the shell game. It would make a great little intro for starting a shell game routine.

School for Scoundrels is the "go to" source for the history of any short-con.
