Thayer Penetrative Card Frame by Limited Editions Magic: released in 2012 and immediately sold out

Winning Bid: $185.00

Here is the original catalog description from 1922:

A card, chosen from the pack is thumb-tacked on the back of a neat mahogany frame. Next a little narrow cross bar with a small center star trap is secured to front of frame by means of neat brass thumb screws at either side.

Performer now passes his wand or a lead pencil through the trap in cross bar and completely through the card from front to rear. Likewise a lighted cigarette, and lastly a silk handkerchief is passed through, the card offering no resistance whatsoever. Finally the frame, card and cross bar are again disassembled, and everything passed for inspection. The card is uninjured.

We have two great features of improvement to offer relative to the merits of this charming deception. First, and the most important is the superior type of construction, and second that all parts may be passed for inspection both before and after the experiment. For a real trick its equal is hard to find. Any pack of cards may be used.

This was faithfully reproduced by Limited Editions Magic in 2012.  They added clips to hold the card in place which Thayer also adopted in later models they produced. Unpacked to photograph!  Sold by Limited Editions for $149. Very few were made.
