Trick of the Month Club (T.M.C.) was created by the Thayer Magic Company in 1931. It was advertised as "No Meetings! - No Conventions! - But just plain magical enjoyment and thrills every month"

The "object" was stated as "Founded in the interest of magic, and for the benefit of those who desire to maintain a continued upkeep in the special line of outstanding pocket and impromptu magical effects at a nominal cost."

The twelve people that supplied tricks were known as the Mystic Twelve. They were each given a free membership to the club.[1]

Tricks

A trick was sent every month to members that subscribed for five dollars a year.
