I couldn't find an exact date on this item.  It is not detailed in the SS Adams biography, but based on the packaging and card designs, as well as the style of instruction sheets, I estimate the item is no later than about 1960.  

The effect is less of a magic trick than a gag, though there is a bit of mystery to it.  Four cards are dealt facedown, and the spectator chooses one of the cards -- it is left face down in front of him.   The other cards are turned faceup one-at-a-time, and it is seen they have messages written on the faces:  "How about a drink?"  "Good idea!"  "Who'll Stand the round?"   The payoff comes when the spectator turns up his card, and the message says "I will."    The magician happily lets the spectator buy him a drink   :-)

Simple working, so more fun, them magic.  But a nice collectible from the heyday of SS Adams.   Only one of these.  A nice find for vintage magic collectors.
