I love the fact that everybody is different. 👍. Some are only kind of different. Nuthin' wrong w/ that to me! You can almost get a better idea of who each person is. Maybe not a lot but at least a little bit. 👍👈
As for me: color monte, Triumph (not a card guy though), Gregory Wilsons Ring leader. Awesome!

Everything I have bought from Craig from PM a year ago is still in use today and still works. I'm amazed by the quality of his offerings.

When I was 13, I got my first Abbott catalog (#7). Paging through it, the DEMON WONDER BOX caught my eye! (I was still in the can, pan, box and tube phase!) But, it was $7.50! --much more than my paper route income for a week. I bought Percy's CHINESE WONDER FAN (Tarbell cone) --$2.00. It wore out within a year.

Six years later, in the Navy, I was in the old EdMar Magic shop, in Norfolk. Doc Karland Frischkorn had died, and the shop was handling his estate sale. WOW! there in the case was a Wonder Box! --and, only $5.00. I nearly tore my underwear, getting out my wallet!

I had no routine for it, I was still in the can, pan, tube phase! I 'cobbled together, a silk vanish and reproduction, which played nicely for a year or two. Then the WONDER BOX, was retired.

About 25 years later, I decided to put T. Francis Fritz's 20th Century Silks into my act. I wanted to get at least 5 minutes, or more, out of it, and I wanted a surprise finish. Harold Rice had the silks, and, in playing with them, I noticed the Wonder Box, EUREKA! I had the extra minutes, and, I could "fill the stage", and have a SURPRISE FINISH with the routine!

I've used the routine for about 45 or 50 years! It's strong enough to be "next to closing"! I wrote it up in my book, cuz, I've seen so many LOUSY "demonstrations" --certainly not performances, of the 20C!

Please check regularly if you are becoming the type of magician Jerry Seinfeld jokes about. (This applies to mentalists as well.)
