These were offered for sale on Ebay recently. I was sure someone on this board
would get a least one of them, but none of them have been posted.
I was out bid on all of them.

This is the only one that I have. It is 4-3/4" high by 7" long counting the 1/2" fringe.
Both sides are shown.

Never saw them.  I have one sample, below, plus an advertisement image (I don't have the original and don't know where the image came from).  They are cool wrappers.  Thanks for sharing the images, Ken.  - Jack J.

Jack, I really like that ad card! I wonder how many different are in the set.
My checklist just went from one to seven.

The ad card says 100 tricks so maybe the checklist is 100 different wrappers.

Daniel, I saw that but thought it more likely meant 100 pieces each with a trick.
Not necessarily a different trick.

Hi Ken,

Here's another to add to your checklist.

There were 5 others in this auction, but the picture is too small to read.

Lastly, you might like this site.  http://gww.su/adams-sons-usa/  Click on Magic Trick to view the gallery.  The are 8 with front and back images and six more with just front images.  Some are good images, some are blurry, and some you have already check listed.

Wow, that is an amazing set.  Many years ago I did upclose magic but I'm way too old with slow hands and shaky hands (when you are 70 you get that way).  I've always loved magic tricks and vintage magic books and I will be looking for this set to add to my collection.

Thanks for all the work you put in on this.

Cliff, I know what you mean! I used to do some parlor magic, now I have trouble
giving the cards a good shuffle.

I still collect all kind of tricks, riddles and puzzles.
