1908 Circus Busch playbill sells on eBay

[The Record Parlour] , a vintage record and memorabilia store in Hollywood.
The listing didn't provide any provenance, but I can. This was part of a four poster display at the Houdini Magical Hall of Fame in Canada. It was auctioned in 1999 and wound up at Wilshire Coin in Santa Monica, where I got a look at it in 2016 . At the time the owner was looking to sell this along with another poster for Houdini's Grand Magical Revue. (I've yet to see that poster surface.)

As far as the playbill itself, it certainly checks out historically. Houdini opened at the Circus Busch the week of August 31, 1908. This advertises his appearance on Saturday, October 3, which was midway through his eight week run.
