Astro-Ball Cabinet by Resor Magic(c. 1967) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
Most likely based upon Abbott’s The Pogo Ball c. 1947 which of course is none other than Phase 1 of Stewart James’ groundbreaking effect which you can read more about here. This was built by Richard Resor and John Butorac c. 1967 for the Resor Magic Co. in Lima, Ohio.
Effect: A painted wooden cabinet is shown sitting on a table. Its front and back doors are slid open, revealing a glass and a ball. The glass and ball can be removed, shown, and replaced. The doors are now closed and latched leaving the glass and ball separately in place inside the cabinet.
The cabinet is lifted by the handle and handed to a spectator to hold, or lifted and placed on a another table. You or the spectator opens the cabinet, and the ball has traveled to inside the glass. At this stage, the glass and ball are removed and freely shown and everything can be completely examined. There is absolutely nothing to find.
Approx. Price: $115.00 (2014) ***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.
