Tenyo Mickey Mouse Poster [Magic On The Block]

Normally when you catch Tenyo magic on eBay, it is one of their ingenious and now no-longer made pocket tricks. This auction, however, is for a Japanese Tenyo poster featuring Mickey Mouse! It is sure to appeal to magic collectors and Disney fans alike so you would think it is going to get kind of expensive. But this is a Buy It Now offering (and there are two posters) so $27 and it is yours (shipping included).

Check it out for yourself over on eBay.

Blackstone Meets Baby Ruth [Magic On The Block]

Posted by Michael on August 2nd, 2018

Harry Blackstone Sr. was one of the first magicians to truly embrace the media. He appeared on the radio, in newspapers, magazines and on television. He did not only perform or give interviews but instead starred in comic books and his own radio show. He also lent his appearance and name to advertising, including this poster for Baby Ruth candy bars. The poster currently being offered on eBay is actually a modern print, but it is still a fun (and much more affordable) bit of magic history.

If you are looking for real vintage Blackstone ephemera check out this auction instead.

A second affordable John Calvert poster is available over on eBay. This one is a bit different than the one we featured earlier this morning. It is from his 2001 Magic Spectacular and is actually a Spanish language poster. Much like the poster from this morning, it also features an unverified signature. The auction is scheduled to end on Friday and you will need to remember to add in about $13.00 for shipping.

You can see more images of this poster and, of course, place your bid over on the eBay listing.

For anyone looking for a low cost way to get in to magic collecting or add some nice, visual pieces to their collection, there are a few auctions on eBay right now you should check out, Seller MagicCollectiblesPlus has a few vintage throw out card offerings, including pieces from Heaney the Magician (shown to the left), Pierson the Great and a lot with cards from Thom Petrie and Harry Tomlin.

All three listings are auctions, not Buy It Now offerings. They all end on Saturday (May 15) and have an opening bid of $5 with $3.50 in shipping charges. Good luck!

Rare European Magic Token [Magic On The Block]

Since we mentioned magic tokens earlier today, we thought we’d poke around eBay to see if there was anything interesting… and found this offering from the Czech Republic. This aluminum token features Kassner. It is in Germany and was made around 1930. It is actually a pretty cool piece and would be a great addition to anyone’s collection. Bidding starts at $25, the auction ends next Monday (April 30, 2018) and you can see more/place bids here.

Cool Vintage PC Sorcar Poster [Magic On The Block]

A very cool magic poster popped up on eBay over the weekend: a 20 by 30 inch vintage PC Sorcar lithograph poster mounted on compressed wood (probably something like clipboards are made out of…) from the early 1950s. Sorcar stuff does not show up in the States as often as other performers of the era, which makes the price ($40 including shipping) of this Buy It Now offering even more tempting. This listing runs until Sunday (April 29); you can see more and over on eBay.

I will be honest: I darn near just bought this without posting it but I am giving y’all a shot. If it is still there this weekend, it is the newest addition to my office!
