Wayne Shifflett first purchased a cups and balls set on January 8, 1968 at the Mingus Magic Shop in Reading, PA. The owner Leroy Mingus taught the young man the routine personally. 50 years later Wayne still performs the cups and balls but now he owns the Mingus Magic Shop! This video commemorating the anniversary was released yesterday features Wayne performing the routine Leroy Mingus taught him… with a store full of magicians who learned from Wayne backing him up.
