This is a VERY hard-to-find Tenyo collectible trick circa 1977.
ONLY ONE AVAILABLE.
We could not find another one currently for sale anywhere on the Internet.
The last ones we could find (also not in original packaging) sold on an online magic auction for $65 in 2017, and for $45 on eBay in June.
Grab this bargain while you can!
T-84 CARD CASE was first offered by Tenyo in 1970.
It is one of the earliest tricks to be offered by Tenyo in plastic.
It remained on the market for a year or two, and now is a highly cherished collectible from the Tenyo product line.
FROM THE MANUFACTURER:
Use a photograph, playing card, or a business card.
Anything set in this frame can be made to vanish.
But, do not worry, it can be easily restored to its original state once again.
An elaborate gimmick is built within the frame, which performs the magic automatically.
Very fine and convenient magic, requiring no setup and can be instantly repeated.
We have found another routine for this item which we think you will also enjoy.
A card is selected, shown to the audience, and torn into pieces.
Card Frame is shown empty and placed on your table.
One card piece is given to the spectator to hold, the rest of the pieces are vanished in your favorite manner.
When the frame is lifted up, the restored card is seen in the window of theCard Frame.
But it is missing a piece!
The spectator's little piece that he has been holding fits the card in the frame perfectly!
Vintage item from 1977, no longer in production, so this a rare find.
It does NOT have its original packaging or its original instructions.
And so you are aware, the sand does not completely leave the window when the card is revealed.
This was a characteristic of the Tenyo sand frame.
THE ITEM IN THE PHOTOS IS THE EXACT ITEM YOU ARE GETTING.
