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.
