Lupe Nielsen on bidding high for a Houdini poster

The YouTube channel Magical Women with Connie Boyd interviews the great Lupe Nielsen of Nielsen Magic. In this you'll see many of the Houdini posters that were part of Lupe and Norm Nielsen's amazing collection. Lupe also tells the story of how they acquired their Dangerfield Water Torture Cell poster.

Much of Norm and Lupe's collection was sold at auction in 2016 and 2017. The Water Torture Cell poster sold for $114,000, which is now the highest price ever paid for a magic poster at auction. Many of the posters are available as reproductions from Nielsen Magic.


  1. Not correct. It's the highest price for a Houdini poster paid at auction. Not a private sale.
