RR Auction Harry Houdini Signed Four of Spades Playing Card

28 Mar

RR Auctions Harry HoudiniIncredible magician’s four of spades playing card, 3.5 x 2.25, neatly signed in black ink, “H. Houdini.” Back of the card is printed with an ‘optical illusion’ design. In very good condition, with scattered creases, small stain to left edge, and rounding wear to edges and corners. Originates from the estate of the long time editor of The Sphinx magazine, Dr. Albert M. Wilson, a pioneering voice in the magical craft and personal friend of Houdini. Upon Wilson’s death in 1930, prominent magician John Mulholland took over the magazine; this signed playing card was later acquired from one of Mulholland’s colleagues. In the beginning of Houdini’s career as a magician, he focused primarily on card tricks—even billing himself as the ‘King of Cards’—an association that increases the already tremendous desirability of this unique piece. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
