The Mystic Mummy by Richard Gerlitz(c. 2003) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
In 2003, Richard Gerlitz created his upscale version called The Mystic Mummy and these were certainly one of the larger and more realistic versions created. Richard tried to remove any moves and successfully attempted to strip the effect down to its essence. As worthy as Richard’s version was over the years, I have tended to favor the more Classical versions created by Eddy Taytelbaum and Alan Warner.
Effect: Two sarcophagi are shown. One has a mummy inside, the other does not. The story revolves around the way the Egyptians used to guard against ‘grave robbers’ which were prevalent at that time. The mummy is placed into one sarcophagus and the lid closed; When the grave robbers broke into the sarcophagus for the Pharaoh’s treasure which was always buried with him, they found nothing … and left empty-handed. The mummy was of course safe and sound in the other sarcophagus!
Approx. Price: $1200.00 (2003) ***Notice: I am not a dealer and this item is not for sale on this site. It maybe available in the links below or at our sister site: qualitymagicsales.com, but not from here so please do not ask.
