Trick of the Month Club
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."
A trick was sent every month to members that subscribed for five dollars a year.
