Hi

Could anyone please tell me which issue of Genii has the Michael Skinner routine for the ball and vase?

This was a while ago and there is no index that goes back that far.

Thanks

It is in an early Magicana column - about 1970 if memory serves. I can check later and post the exact issue...

Best, PSC

P.S. I believe it was reprinted in the BuzzBee release, Intimate Magic?

The Genii Open Index goes back that far...

The Bewildering Ball Vase by Mike Skinner (Vol. 34, No. 4, Dec. 1969) p183

Yes, it is in Intimate Magic. While on this effect, Mike Gallo does a superb presentation of it.

The Mike Gallo handling is in his one-man issue of Richard's Almanac.

Skinner's Ball and Vase is on his (now on DVD) instructional video tapes.

Thanks, Richard, for reference to Mike Gallo handling. I assume it is in the June 1984 issue because that's the one I cannot find :(
