There have been many threads on this topic in the past, so I figured I would post the links to them in a single post, for future reference and the benefit of other users. Many of these threads are buried in "The workers" forum, so this will make it easier to find them all. I've arranged them by the date of the initial post. You will find lots of excellent discussion and suggestions in these threads!

I hope this will be a useful resource for those researching self-working card tricks. Enjoy!

Here's an addition to the "BEST SELF-WORKING TRICKS" category, although it does include mention of some effects with gaffed cards:

The self-working effects that seem to be mentioned most often in the threads above are these:

I PMed Dave Scribner to see if this was sticky-worthy. Looks like he agrees it is (thanks Dave).

And of course thanks Topov for this collection of links!
