OK. I got the invoice and the prices realized. I must have slipped through the cracks, but Gabe fixed it.

Got my stuff in the mail yesterday. Nicely packaged...safe and secure. Well pleased with the selection. Put some of it up for sale. Out of the Blackstone Lot, I got some rare pieces. Funny thing....I calculated the average cost per piece and I figured it at less than $9.50 per item. This morning I learned that one of the pieces (a hand-drawn self caricature with signature) is has a sale value between $2500 and $3000.

I hope you get your stuff pretty soon. Be watching the mailbox...and they sent it insured with signature required, so make sure somebody is around to get it or you'll have to go pick it up. Ugh.

Depends on where you sell it. I've seen the autographed carcicature's of Uncle Harry go for as little as $250 and they were in good condition.

That's true...An item is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I have no intention of selling it, though. So it really doesn;t matter to me...But I thought it was pretty cool.

I just sent the check yesterday, so hopefully I'll have it next week. Someday I like to get this stuff all in order. It just seems there is not enough time. Maybe it's me?

No. I have the same problem. I have so much stuff I need to organize...It just never seems to get done.

Thanks. I was starting to think I had some organizational problem. I do know many collectors who have their whole collections written down or on the computer. The best I have done was to get the books in alphabetical order. Maybe I should hire aguy like Oscar Teale and get it done.

LOL. I only collect one magician! I HAVE to keep them alphabetical! What I really can't get a handle is the ephemera. I know I could lay it all out and sort it all. I just don't want to have it all over the room. It would be a controlled mess for weeks/months.

The programs arrived today, so I'm a happy camper. Now on to the next thing. Smile

Michal, did you come up with anything yet?

Nothing that would really interest you. I've got some good stuff in my Houdini collection, but nothing that I wouldn't regret parting with. My wife, on the other hand, would probably give you everything I have. Lol. I've got one more trunk to go through...I'll let you know what I find in there. I'm glad you finally got your package! I hate waiting. It's like being a kid on Christmas Eve and having to wait till morning! ARRRGGHH!
