The collection of my friend John Drury is up for auction: you can view the catalogue online here:

Click on "Catalogues" on the red bar, then you'll find a drop-down menu and you can click on that. The Mysto Magic sets are on the later pages.

John was the anchor for ABC Eyewitness News in Chicago for many years, and he is now terminally ill with ALS (Lou Geherig's disease).

This is the largest collection of Mysto Magic Sets and other Gilbert Toys ever to come up for auction.
