Topic: How much??
Message: Posted by: Kraziee (May 5, 2002 12:59PM)
I have a copy of the Magic Wand, October-November, 1922 (No 115-VolXI)and I was wondering how much this is worth, if it is worth anything?

It has "forty magical items" in it with contibutors such as David Devant, P.T Selbit, Gus fowler, Chris Van Bern, G W. Hunter, and sevral others.

Now I know that you probably wont be able to say very easily as you can't see the copy, but if you could give me a general idea, that would be cool as I have been wondering about this for ages.

P.S. I have no intention of selling, so please don't ask.

Oh well, it was worth a try as I have no idea and was curious.

Thanks anyway.

I just bought Crystal Casket Trick from the early 40ies. Great and intelligent. :sun: :sun:

Like anything else it depends on the buyer. To someone who collects old magic magazines (depending on the condition)it could be worth hundreds. To others $10 would probably be asking too much.
I collect music related items: Gold record awards, signed albulms, and other rare items.
How much is it worth? To someone who collects stuff for a particular artist or group..a lot! To others, you probably couldn't give it away.

A way to find out a ball park figure, is to do a search for simular items at places like Ebay and other auction and collectible sites.
It may be tough for magic related magazines, but you may get lucky.
Hope this helps.

If it helps, a couple of years ago I sold a complete run of 25 years of the Linking Ring in very fine condition. That's 300 magazines. Rather than chance having them fall into lay hands, I sold them to a reputable magic dealer. The total price came to a bit less than fifty cents (U.S.) each.

Collectors would pay much more for an issue they did not have but I was moving and needed the space. Actually, I was quite happy to get what I did.
