Bert Allerton’s Aspirin Box

$65.00

 
Eugene Burger presents a true classic of Close-up Magic. Bert Allerton's Aspirin Box Restaurant routine that made him famous in the forties and fifties. This is an enhanced version. A small piece of “photographic paper,” initialed by a spectator, sits inside an empty aspirin tin. A playing card is selected from a pack. A spectator take a photograph of the selected card using a miniature camera that REALLY FLASHES!
 
When the signed paper in the little box is examined, it is found to have “developed” into a perfect miniature photograph of the chosen card!

 
This is a collector's item as it is no longer available anywhere. Be the first in your city to fool the best of the best with the best.

Allerton’s Aspirin Box

 
Bert Allerton’s “The Aspirin Box” (originally titled “Spirit Cartography”) is a later variation of the Spirit Photography Card Trick and Photographic Coins. It was first published in Bert Allerton’s The Close-up Magician by Robert Parrish, 1958, p. 62. Allerton developed the trick with the help of Fred Braue in 1940 or early 1941, as documented by Braue in Hugard’s Magic Monthly, Vol. 18 No. 12, August 1961, p. 139.
 
Eugene Burger’s routine is a significant technical improvement over earlier versions. We consider it to be a special piece of magic, particularly because it concludes with a delightful personalized souvenir for the participating spectator. Through countless performances it has never failed to get a wonderful reaction.
