This is a vintage ORIGINAL autograph on a GENII Magazine cover.One of a kind!!
John Max Thompson (July 27, 1934 – March 9, 2019) was an American comedian and Las Vegas illusionist who performed under the stage name "The Great Tomsoni" with his wife, Pamela Hayes. They had a comedic slapstick act with the well-dressed Thompson and his gum-popping assistant, Pam, performing illusions while enduring a series of mishaps. Within the magician community, Tomsoni was considered a virtuoso, widely known as a mentor and teacher of magic, and a creator of tricks, as opposed to simply a performer. He worked behind the scenes with magicians such as Penn and Teller, Lance Burton, Criss Angel and Mat Franco.
His autograph is on the cover of the November 1976 GENII Magazine.Cover only- cover has been removed from the rest of the magazine, which is not included.
Autograph reads, "Best Wishes from That Warsaw Wizzard" The Great Tomsoni & Co".Interestingly, the "& Co" is written in a different pen, as if it was added later- probably by his wife, Pam, the "& Co" of the act!
CONDITION: excellent.Some expected age yellowing of the paper, slight foxing.This page was removed from a GENII Magazine and autographed by Thompson. Autograph is very clear and ornate.COVER ONLY- the rest of the magazine is not included
