AMA Swap Meet 2014

Postby shatteredorbit » April 27th, 2014, 4:24 pm

I am glad that Dustin reminded me about the Swap Meet at the Magic Castle this past weekend. I managed to get down there (its a 3 hour drive) and picked up some good finds. Mainly I was looking for some of the basics. I picked up Tarbell 1-7 and Fitzkee 1-3. I have both on my tablet but it is nice to have physical copies to reference.

Did anyone make it out to the event? What should I keep an eye out for at garage sales and other 'non magic' type swap meets?

There's a lot of great material in the Tarbell volumes, but a lot of it is also badly dated. (For instance, I wouldn't make up that Al Jolson rising cards.)

If you have just Tarbell and Greater Magic, you really don't need anything else.

Still on the hunt for Greater Magic. I also picked up Bobo's New Modern Coin Magic at the meet. It's on the shelf next to your CoinMagic and David Roth's Expert Coin Magic volumes.

I am so new at this that I am still working on the basics.
