Houdini's first sub trunk sells on eBay

Houdini expert (and friend and neighbor) Patrick Culliton has sold Houdini's very first Metamorphosis trunk on eBay.

This important magic artifact was hand built by Houdini in the 1890s. Harry and Bessie used this truck during their struggling days. The trunk was later used by Houdini's brother, Hardeen. Partick has owned the truck for 45 years.

Opening bid was $14,500, but a buyer snapped it up for the "buy it now" price of $44,500.

Let's hope it's going to a good home.
