I love looking through old magic catalogs and ads, and I am sure there are others out there like me who get inspired by reading old forgotten effects and magical ideas. Or who smile with nostalgic melancholy at the sight of an ad for Tenyo's Sidetrack, only $19...Delivered! Or a Twin-Di boxes for $100. (Half of what I paid last year for one here on eBay)... Oh to go back in time! Of course, you'll also see magic teaching Video tapes for "only" $69.50 :-)
Looking through, here's just a few of the highlighted effects that are described:
- Tenyo Sidetrack, Infinitum, Alpha Tunnel
- Warren Stephens Uncanny can, Wacky Silks
- Color Changing SOCKS!
- Squeezeaway Block
- Lollipop sucker trick
- deck on a stick -- great idea!
- Card Wand
- Nick Trost -- Mexican monte, Blanko Wild Card, razzle dazzle, Rainbow Miracle, Trick Kards
- Hades Improved Finger Chopper
- Vocab dictionary book test
To be clear, these are just ads for those tricks, but they got me thinking and I am working a few of them out for myself. Maybe you can to.
These are in nice condition, no tears or marks, just a little wear around the edges of the pages.
