The Ghost Board from RAR Magic: a rare wonderful piece of magic

Winning Bid: $2,229.00

Sometimes as a dealer you run across an item that you just don’t want to part with. This is the case with this item.  I have had it for several years but only now have decided to make it available to to a lucky Magic Collectibles customer.

It is in essence a self opening lock that you always control. It is not a clockwork effect but electronic with a sure fire mechanism that works every time.  You can control this from a seat in the audience if you prefer!

The effect comes with a presentation that is excellent involving Houdini and his love for locks and gold. You have a spectator lock his/her wedding band on the lock and insured the lock is securely fastened. You then hang the lock on a plain board watch stand so it remains untouched until the moment of release. You set about trying to get in touch with Houdini’s spirit to unlock the lock. The audience concentrates and at the proper moment (controlled by you) the lock springs open releasing the ring.

This is a strong effect and I believe should be played as a serious piece.  The effect lends itself to many presentations from it being Houdini’s lock (it looks the part) to the wood of the stand being made from a haunted house. The audience focusing on the lock and watching it spring open has real impact.

The video is just a quick clip of the lock as it opens.  It is a great effect. Remember the lock is locked by the spectator! Perfect working condition with original instructions. circa 1975
