Cardini: Magic, Autographs, Posters & More

The name Cardini looms large in the annals of conjuring. He was, unquestionably, the most imitated - and likely the most influential - magician of the 20th century. On April 6, 2013, Potter & Potter will offer the personal property of this remarkable sleight-of-hand artist at public auction. Included in the sale are the props and costumes he made famous, playbills and posters, association items, correspondence, Cardini's scrapbooks, unpublished photographs, awards, tokens, and much more. This will be, undoubtedly, a once-in-a-lifetime offering. In addition, rarities from other private collections - including choice Houdini-related memorabilia, will be featured. Pre-sale exhibition will include a museum-like display of remarkable artifacts and a catalog of exceptional quality to match.
