I don't know if any signed posters exist but the least expensive Houdini autograph/signature I have seen (with certificate of authenticity) was around $300.00 U.S. I really don't think you will find anything less expensive.

Well, $300 for an original poster is not that expensive. I've seen reproductions, that are much more expensive!

The closest thing I saw in a signed piece of that size, was a one sheet size photo that Houdini used for his lobby display. I think that sold for about $13,000.

With Houdini posters starting out at about $10,000, you probaly will realize the autograph will be negated.

The average Houdini autograph starts in the $1,000 range and goes up from there. I would definetly stay away from $100-$700 clunkers you see on the internet, especially the clipped signature ones.

So far I only have Houdini's recorded voice from 1914 by Thomas Edison.
Not bad for starting Smile

The recording is on an original cylinder? That's a great piece to have.

You have to be careful buying autographs of dead people. On flee-markets and ebay many of them are faked. A certificate of authentication can be faked, too Smile Most secure way would be buying at an official auction. But the prices will be much higher there, of course.
