Re: For Sale - The Magic of Robert Harbin

As of now, the price is a bargain. Adjusted for inflation, the high bid is less than what I paid in 1999 or 2000 (I forget which) for the copy that I bought from Ted Lesley (who brokered the deal for a friend's widow).

The "lifetime" supply of sparkle matches that I bought myself 25 years ago for a trick is running out and I've been advised that these items are no longer made.

If anyone knows a source (or has a stash lying around unused and wants to sell them), please let me know.
