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!

This is a very cool offering on eBay: a collection of vintage magic photographs! The seller states that there are over fifty snapshots from what they believe to be the 1974 combined IBM/SAM convention. There are definitely some famous faces in the pictures, including Dai Vernon, Bill & Irene Larsen, Ali Bongo and more. The bidding starts at only $9.95 and the auction lasts until next Sunday (April 15, 2018) or you can choose the Buy It Now option and grab the collection for $19.95. Shipping is a flat $4.00 either way.

Check this unique lot out over on eBay.

TV Mystery Cards [Magic on the Block]

We’ve probably featured an auction for a deck like these before, but I am passing this along because I know for a fact many iTricksters (particularly Chicago area ones) have a real soft spot for Marshall Brodien. This 1977 deck of TV Mystery Cards is STILL IN THE ORIGINAL PACKAGE and up for grabs on eBay! Buy it now for $29.99 plus $3.99 shipping… not a terrible price for getting that one toy you never got as a child or replacing a favorite that you lost along the way.

Get more details or grab the deck while you can over on eBay. You might want to check out this circa 1972 Marshall Brodien magic set, too.
