Original Metamorphosis Drawings on Ebay

The images featured below are from a current sale on Ebay, and are listed as the original drawings from Doug’s “Metamorphosis.” I’m very certain these are not from the “Magic Show” days, and could be from the specials or the 1981 filmed version of “The Magic Show.” However, the specifics on where they originate is vague,…

7 Front Row Doug Performance Photos on EBay

Scouring Doug items on EBay is kind of a mixed bag. There’s a lot of standard stuff that was mass produced, and floods the page (i.e. Wonder Whims, programs, etc). But, every now and then you come across some unique nuggets that make it worth your while. Case in point, these seven performance photos that…

Earth, Wind, & Fire Thank You to Doug- Ebay Item

For all you collectors out there, I just came across this unseen item today on Ebay. As you can see, this 1978 trade magazine advertisement was from the popular band Earth, Wind, and Fire thanking Doug for creating illusions for their tour. It also works well as a double promotion for Doug’s then upcoming “World…

Ebay Item-1978 Performance Photos

I normally don’t post too much of Ebay items, but this one certainly caught my eye.  Now keep in mind I have nothing to do with this sale, but really look at it. It’s not often that you see candid stage performance pictures taken of Doug that often. As the description explains, Doug’s shows didn’t…

ebay Week: Rarely seen Doug and Chita Rivera “Merlin” Photo

Now we’ve all seen pictures of Doug and Chita Rivera in their “Merlin” costumes. However, I gravitated to this one because of its natural and over all congenial tone between the two stars. I’m guessing this was taken at the premiere of “Merlin” (correct me if I’m wrong), and it shows a bit of a…

eBay Week: “Spheres of Merlin” Framed Poster

This beauty hails from 1976, and features one of Doug’s most famous quotes: “The art of a magician is to create wonder. If we live with a sense of wonder, our lives become filled with joy”  Painted by fantasy artist Gilbert Williams, I assume this was part of Doug’s touring merchandise. The only place I have…

eBay Week: 1977 “World of Magic” Doug and Earth Press Photo

Doug literally goes global in this little seen press photo publicizing 1977’s “World of Magic.” I have to admit, I’ve seen many, many photos of Doug in my time. But, this one is a first even for me. Its odd choice of having Doug ominously standing over the Earth with beams shooting out of his…

eBay Week: Love, Peace, and Magic Poster

This week I thought I’d try something a little different, and highlight what I feel are some of the more unique Doug collectibles on eBay right now! The above “Love, Peace, and Magic” poster comes from a 1975 issue of “Dynamite Magazine.” I really love the design and typeface of it all, as it really…

Doug Henning Magic Kit Ebay Item

Hey All! Lisa England was kind enough to let me know about her recent Doug item that’s currently on Ebay. As you can see, it’s the one of the rare Holy Grails of Doug merchandise,  Tenyo’s  “Magic You Can Do Kit.” While I’ll be sitting this one out, I hope one of our lucky readers…
