Tommy Wonder's "Ring, Watch & Wallet" on eBay

Postby Tom Stone » November 13th, 2017, 10:14 am

(I'm not sure where to put this, since I'm not involved in the auction, I'm only bringing attention to it.)

The Tommy Wonder estate have just placed the original Ring, Watch & Wallet on eBay.

This is the set that Tommy used himself in performances, which might, or might not, be of interest for collectors.

Look at the beads on the back of the watch -- nothing left to chance, here . . .

True! Since those beads are mentioned in neither the books nor the videos, I asked Frank about it. He replied:
-"Jos added those small rollers hoping that would make it easier to slide the watch of his wrist, but it didn't make any difference at all"

Some dude on Magic Cafe insisted that this auction was a scam by Frank, because the props didn't look the way he had decided Tommy's props should look like. So I made a screen capture from the DVD where those beads are visible:

Not that the effort mattered, some moderator deleted the thread a few minutes later. Apparently it isn't allowed to bring attention to material by our best.
