Norm Nielsen magic poster collection for sale

Word in the magic collecting community is that Norm Nielsen's formidable collection of almost 2000 magic posters is for sale. The collection, housed in Las Vegas, includes many Houdini sheets, including what might be the only surviving poster for his Overboard Box Escape (above).

The collection is being sold only as an entire lot and the asking price is said it be "seven figures." It will be interesting to see where this amazing collection eventually lands.

  1. There's only one place it can go and we all know who that gentleman is. He may have to construct a new wing to his museum to fit all of Norm's posters.

  2. Wow, these are incredible.

  3. You're right--it will move a few blocks away to DC
