Auction - Gary Jackel estate
Gary Jackel was, for over 15 years, one of the top children's magicians in Sydney. He also travelled extensively into the outback, entertaining underprivileged kids who never got to see magic. He was also a magic obsessive. He loved magic and turned up at every event and amassed, over his career, a big collection of magic.
Gary's equipment is in beautiful condition and this will be a popular night for sure.
There are a lot of silk items with each effect stored carefully in its own little case. Nearly everything is for the family entertainer. There are some larger items such as a floating table, a chair suspension, guillotines, a Card Duck, Rabbit boxes, Stratospheres etc. There are numerous Wands, juggling balls, plate spinning items. DVD's some with a Gospel theme.
