Postcard signed by Houdini and T.R. sells on eBay

A postcard signed by Houdini and President Theodore Roosevelt while they were making their famous transatlantic crossing aboard the Imperator in June 1914 has sold on eBay for $1,075. The seller found it among a batch of postcards purchased at a New Jersey garage sale. The postcard reads:

"Dear Gertie, this ship is incredible and very big. Met the former President to-day and the mystic your brother saw. Got both their autographs for Tom. All my love, Walter"

Nice item!
