Does anyone know the contents of these sets? I think they came in at least different sizes. Were they ever sold as single items vs complete sets? Any pictures of the sets or pieces?

Any info is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Kevin

Hi Kevin,

Am assuming that you are talking about the ones that exhibit a "Houdini" in script as the logo.

I believe that at least some were sold idividually as I have several in envelopes and the packaging seems to indicate such.

Ted,

I have the single envelopes too. I also have a boxed set that contains some of these envelopes and boxed items too. I've heard since my first post that there are at least 3 different sets.

I asked Wittus Witt about them, but he did not have the set or info. If he doesn't know, it seems like some real tough job to get the real scoop on these. I asked Richard Kaufman and he added that they were rare in set form.

Good Luck with your auction.....Kevin
