Pawn Stars pick Houdini's Handcuffs

I knew it was inevitable that something Houdini related would one day appear on Pawn Stars, and it looks like that day has finally arrived! A pair of "Houdini's Handcuffs" will come into the shop tomorrow, January 17, in one of the first new episodes of 2011.

Can't wait to see how this goes down. There are a lot of "Houdini handcuffs" out there with very slippery provenance. Who might they turn to for expert advice, I wonder? Good luck, guys!

Pawn Stars airs on The History Channel. Check you own local listings for times.


  1. Murray Sawchuck the Illusionist does a lot of work with Pawn Stars the TV show. But I'm not sure he'd be the one to evaluate handcuffs, no offense to Murray. It will be fun to watch though, I like that show.

  2. The did call Murray in. He referred to the cuffs as 'Darcies'.

  3. Yep. You know, the cuffs came from the Radner collection...we all know what that's about. I think the price they worked out was pretty fair. I've often thought about bringing one of my signed books to the Pawn Stars shop. That might be a good idea. He seemed VERY excited to see a Houdini item. Even said they'd never had anything Houdini before.

  4. how much are the Houdini handcuffs worth?
