Albert Goshman

Albert Goshman (1921? - February 9, 1991) was a bagel baker from Brooklyn, who became one of the greatest close-up magicians of all time. Early in his professional magic career he billed himself as "The Baker That's a Faker".

During War World II, while working in a defense plant, he discovered a small book of coin and pocket tricks and began to study. Following the war, he became a regular visitor at the New York's magic shops. He favored coin magic and began calling himself Fakir, the Baker.

He relocated to the west coast in the early 1960s and beginning in 1963 was a regular performer at the Magic Castle. He became known for his routine involving coins and salt shakers.

Goshman also developed a number of foam rubber products including sponge balls. As demand grew, he expanded in to larger quarters and finally purchased a building to house his manufacturing enterprise.
