Hey Dick Oslund, the 1-2-1 Rope Trick costs $1.50, I have the price written on the instructions, in the early 1970's.

Yes! $1.50 -- in 1970! But, that's 45 years ago!!! I THINK that Abbott's has it priced now at about 12.00. I'll ask Greg next time I phone him.

Guys.......PLEASE DO NOT bring up the price of props from the 50's, 60's, or 70's.....because, if you do, STOCK BROKERS will go out of business!

Just about every Magic prop still being made today has increased in price by 1,000 per cent or more since the good OLD DAYS...So what's the moral of THAT story? Buy every Magic prop you can and hold onto it forever!!!

And Dick Oslund (as usual) is right on the money....Monk Watson had NO IDEA what he was doing, and the rope with 4 ends is a dirty, stinking, lousy trick....DON'T DO IT!

And oh, by the way, Dick..........got our Christmas card today from Heather and Jahal in Toronto.......BOY WAS HE A HAPPY CAMPER WHEN HE GOT YOUR BOOK!!!

Yeah! I received a card from Jahal and Heather, yesterday. It cost $40. to ship the book to Toronto. He enclosed some $$$ to help take the sting off!

I paid Percy Abbott, twenty-five cents for my first TT in '45. @1000%. So, now, it's worth $62.50. Why didn't I buy 1,000 TTs THEN?

Bill Hegbli and I are friends (here comes the but!)::: But, we have to agree to disagree on the 1-2-1 rope!!! For heaven's sake, don't tell anyone else!!!
