The New Tops Cover-July 1974

The above 1974 cover is from the venerable magic manufacturer Abbott’s. The magazine itself was a long time staple of the company and existed in various forms from the 1930-1990s. Through many monthly articles, the magazine kept the magic community abreast of the comings and goings of the magic world at large. 

Ending in the 1990s  due to the pesky internet, older issues are still readily available if one wants to go back to a time in magic where the concept of cell phones and Wi-Fi were magic in themselves!

Special Thanks to Michael Johnson and his excellent book “Magician Doug Henning Collectibles Guide.” To purchase, please visit the link below:
