Billed by Ted Bogusta's Martinka Magic as the Magic Auction of the Century, it did not disappoint with total sales exceeding a million dollars ($1,032,588 includes premium but not sales tax). All but one item was sold, with 34% of the lots being sold in the room while phone and internet bidders bought the rest.
