Auction items restored: Rare Ellusionist items to help benefit Haiti earthquake victims

February 2nd, 2010 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under Products


Our rare auction items have been relisted. Unfortunately, part of eBay’s solution for the restoral of these items was to eliminate all previous bids. However, the mission remains unchanged. 100 percent of the bid price of all of these items will be donated to the American Red Cross for Haiti earthquake assistance. There are also more shipping options listed, so the cost should not be as high as the previous auction.

The links below are the correct ones; if you were watching the previous auctions, you will need to clear those and use these links instead.

Everyone at Ellusionist appreciates your patience with this matter. We have been assured that it won’t happen again — Both Ellusionist and eBay want to make sure your generosity does not go to waste.

Auction items restored: Rare Ellusionist items to help benefit Haiti earthquake victimsAn opportunity to snag some of Ellusionist’s rare items will benefit the American Red Cross and help the people of Haiti recover from a devastating earthquake.

We’ve placed some of our more rare items up for bids in a special eBay fundraising auction. 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the American Red Cross Haiti Relief Fund. The items up for auction include five 1st ed. Black Ghost decks, three uncut sheets of the 1st ed. Black Ghost deck and the ultra-new, ultra-rare Red Arcane Porper Clip.

You already know how rare the Black Ghost decks are. Our supply of the run of 5,000 has dwindled over the years, so opportunities to snag them will decrease. The same goes for the uncut sheets: As rare as the decks are, the sheets are even more rare.

As for the red clips: There are only 50 in existence. They are exactly like the silver and gun-metal clips, only they come in a dark red color. They are every bit as durable and functional as any Porper Clip — they will keep your cards flat, crisp and ready to go. Also, even though the hole is cut to match the Arcane ace perfectly, the aces on other deck boxes aren’t too far off the mark. This auction will be the first chance that ANYONE has had to get one of the red clips.

You can find auctions for each of the items below. Your participation will go a long way toward helping Haitians recover and get back to normal lives.
