Magical Land Of Allakazam New Club Ceritificate And Membership Card - Signed by Mark & Nani Wilson

Ceritificate with New Unused Membership Card From Mark Wilson's TV Show
"THE MAGICAL WORLD OF ALLAKAZAM"
First Live Children's Magic Show on National TV - 1960/1964

The certificate is personally signed by magician Mark Wilson and his partner/wife Nani Darnell Wilson
I acquired the certificate during a magic meeting with Mark & Nani, as a prize for attending their lecture.



In 2010 the Fort Worth Magicians Club Had Mark and Nani came to town to lecture at a special meeting for their members. The occasion for their visit was two fold: First they were doing a mini lecture tour and second, they were visiting their son Michael (both Greg and Michael were on the magic show as children) who was supervising the carving of the very first ice sculpting attraction at the Gaylord Texan hotel in Grapevine, Texas near Fort Worth. He had been working in China and sold the hotel chain on the idea of a Christmas attraction available no other place than in China. Now, each year, talented Chinese ice sculptors spend weeks in the U.S. doing the most fabulous ice carvings.

information below on the Chinese Hardin festival:
The annual Harbin International Ice and Snow Sculpture Festival (Chinese: 哈尔滨国际冰雪节; pinyin: Hā'ěrbīn Guójì Bīngxuě Jié) is an annual winter festival that takes place in Harbin, Heilongjiang, China, and is the largest ice and snow festival in the world. Officially, the festival starts on January 5 and lasts one month. However, exhibits often open earlier and stay longer, weather permitting. While there are ice sculptures throughout the city, there are two main exhibition areas: The festival will open December 25, 2015.

The Magicial Land of Allakazam (1960 thru 1964) was the first all-magic network show on television and Mark, Nani and Rebo the Clown were able to keep it there for five years. Getting the show together, selling the idea and obtaining sponsors was the culmination of the couple's dreams, planning, hard work, failures and eventual great success. Mark and Nani fought hard to keep the show because that first year series had to overcome the universal opinion of television programmers and executives that "magic won't work on television." How wrong they were! When the Magic Land Of Allakazam aired, youngsters all over America began carrying their colorful "membership cards".

This is part of Television history with this original, unused, Mark Wilson Allakazam Certificate and Card.
