Link: Great escape: Magician, wife want to free memorabilia

Here's a nice article in the State Journal Register about the great Steve Baker (Mr. Escape) and his desire to rescue his props and memorabilia from a storage locker in California. Lots of info about Steve's career and the influence of Houdini.

Steve Baker was an influence on me as I was first becoming interested in Houdini and magic. He was certainly one of the most prominent escape artists of his era, and I'll never forget meeting Steve and Julie at The Magic Emporium in Tarzana in 1976.

Hopefully someone will step forward and help Steve preserve his legacy.

  1. Such a shame to see Steve in such a condition. I was not aware he was ill.
