I'm after either a poster or large photograph of Dai Vernon. It does not have to be signed.

The only dealer I can find selling a poster is Norm Nielson, but it's a rather expensive $150.

I believe Magic Hands of Germany were producing a series of posters which included a Vernon one. I don't think they are sold any more.

Are there any first or second hand dealers who I should investigate?

Thanks in advance,

Hey Mikey,
I have a beautiful poster of the professor I obtained from Mitch Williams. It is a mixed media print done by Mr. Williams in Vernon's famous pose. One side he is young, the other, older. It is beautiful and I believe I paid around $75 for it. I might be able to dig up his address if you're interested, or maybe someone else can help.

I forgot to mention this; a good friend just got the Nielson Print and it's beautiful. If you're a serious student of Vernon, it's definately worth the price.

Vernon signed and gave me a 16x20 original of the famous shot of him with the cards and smoke rising... maybe I should have some dupes made... but it ain't cheap to make quality prints...
Stay tooned.

I'd buy one if the price is somewhat under the National Debt of Denmark!

Hi guys,
Sorry, I can't find any information on Mitch other than a link at an old site for a convention. www.kcclambake.com
He is from Canton Ohio. So if you know anyone in the area, maybe they can help.
