VERY RARE vintage magic trick from the estate collection of a retired professional magician.
Nearly imposible to find version of the Car Buggy!We could not find another available on the Internet, especially in this near mint condition!
A card is selected from a deck of cards, returned to the deck and then shuffled.Ten or twelve cards are then placed face down on the table in a single row.The magician then introduces "The Wonder Car".The spectator is asked to push the car down the table along side the row of cards.Suddenly the car stops at one card in the row.The card is turned over- and it is the selected card!
The Car Buggy concept is a popular one- it seems impossible!Any time a Car Buggy has come on the market, they are in short supply and disappear rather quickly, probably due to the fact that they are so hard to make.This particular car was made in the early 1970s, and was marketed by Louis Tannen Inc. as part of their Trick In a Box series.
What an amazing addition to a magic collector's vintage magic collection!You won't see another one anytime soon- if ever!
CONDITION: excellent- looks new. Car is made of solid painted wood.About 2.5" long and 2" wide.Circa 1970s by Jim Hill.Use ordinary playing cards (not included)
