Houdini trading cards coming in Oct.

All About is teaming up with Eachus Publishing and the Houdini Museum in Scranton to launch Houdini: The World's First Superhero Trading Cards. While there have been individual Houdini trading cards throughout the years, this is the first full set that I'm aware of.

First up will be an 18 card preview set due out August 31. Limited to only 500 sets, it's available for pre-order now.

This will be followed by the official 54 card set to be released at the Houdini Museum's Houdini seance on October 31st. Curator and legendary escape artist Dorothy Dietrich will autograph card inserts.

You can get more information, see preview poster cards, and pre-order the preview set at All About

Thanks to Julio Sevilla for the alert.


  1. I am looking forward to this. I am aware of a 14 card trading set that features posters and programmes that is available on eBay: The backs of these 14 cards together form a famous pose of Houdini.
    The 18 card pre-set followed by the 52 card set is going to be sweet.

  2. Frank Eachus of Frank Eachus Publishing - Couple of corrections - 500 sets will be printed of the preview set. And the full set will be 54 cards. Thanks.

  3. Any update on ordering the full set?

    1. It will be available on Halloween, presumably via this same link or
