One of the rarest Abbott props in existence n excellent condition. This is Niel Foster’s Tennis anyone. Advertised in one catalog (#21 in 1976) and literally never seen. You will not find any auction results on this one.
Based upon an effect from 1935. A beautiful cabinet is shown and opened. A tennis racket is removed and spun in the had showing it is a string-less racket. A ball of red yard is shown and partially unrolled. The red yard is then placed in a can. The racket is one again spun in the hand and it them visibly appears strung under no cover of any kind! The can is dumped out and out rolls a tennis ball which is bounced on the racket!
The beautifully finished box box is 27 by 19 by 4.5 inches. You will need to supply your own ungimmicked tennis ball.
I have never seen this in anyone collection and believe me I have sen my share of collections including the Great Bill Kings apparatus collection.
If you are an Abbott collector or just a collector of rare fine magic apparatus, what are you waiting. for? Probably priced to low. Better buy it before I decide to keep it.
