Wanted: Dai Vernon poster/photograph

Postby Guest » January 18th, 2002, 8:13 am

Hi,

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,


Michael

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.

Mikey,
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.

Pete:

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.
Sorry!
