1930's Houdini Magic Sets

Discuss the latest news and rumors in the magic world.

Does anyone know the contents of these sets? I think they came in at least 3 different sizes. Were they ever sold as single items vs complete sets? Any pictures of the sets or pieces?

I know Richard is the King of magic sets. Any leads?

Thanks,
Kevin

They came in at least two different sizes: Joel Miller had them in his collection. Don't remember anything else, other than that they came out after Houdini's death, but had his photo on the lid.

Thanks for the quick reply. I just took a look at Wittus Witt's site and book, but I didn't see it. I picked up the set, single pieces and booklets over the years and I'm just trying to figure it out.

Thanks Again,
Kevin

Witt never had one. They are extremely hard to find (which is why I can't remember how many sizes there are).
