Blackstone's Magic Tricks
Philadelphia Gum released this card set in 1962. There were 24 folder-cards in the set, each measuring 2-7/16" by 3-1/2".
Released in 5-cent packages of Magic Trick Bubble Gum, these cards were actually folded little pamphlets that provided to the secret behind specific close-up illusions, as presented by Harry Blackstone, the 'Dean of Magicians.' Each numbered card featured one colored page, the 'cover,' which gave the set name, the card title, the card number, and a brief illustration of the trick to be performed. In addition to this, each pack also contained the small card or other item to be used in the illusion (unnumbered).
This card set and over 400 more are covered in the new Vintage Trading Card Price Guide. Get your copy
