Going once, going twice...

Just a reminder that Briggs auction of Houdini artifacts from the private collection of former Philadelphia 76ers president Pat Croce is TODAY at 4:00pm EST. Among the items on the block today is a large color lithograph from Houdini's full evening show (estimate: $8,000 - $10,000) and a cased collection of ancient padlocks (estimate $50,000 - $70,000).

You can see the full auction catalog online at Absentee and telephone bidding will be available during this auction. Live online bidding is offered through

Briggs has also put out a nice printed catalog (pictured) that I would highly recommend grabbing. It may be the last look at some of these rarities for some time to come.

I will post auction results as soon as I get them. Good luck to all!

Thanks to Briggs Auction for the catalog and for being a WILD ABOUT HARRY sponsor.

UPDATE: Results here.
