In the opening paragraphs of Tommy Windsor’s ‘Street Faker Act’ manuscript he makes reference to a booklet/script published originally by Thayers called The Magical Pitchman. I wonder if any Café readers might have any deets on said manuscript; size, date of publication, etc,?
I check the magic booklists from time to time but haven’t seen it.

I've found these manuscripts entertaining.. but not truly educational. Of course, you never know where you'll find a nugget that sparks an effect or routine. Trickshop.com is one of my favorite sources for inexpensive, long-forgotten material.

Wow! Thanks for the follow up.
It's been a few years but subsequent to my initial post I discovered that the Thayer pitch actually appears in the Genii Magazine July 1976 all pitch issue. No mention of Thayer, just called The Magical Pitchman with a byline to William Larsen Sr.
